Quilts for Refugees

Our members made three quilts for refugees in 2016. At our December meeting we donated them to Commonwealth Catholic Charities. They will give them to families who have relocated to Virginia.

We used two quilt patterns from the MQG’s Quilt of the Month series.

This is Rally by Melanie Tuazon, the February 2016 Quilt of the Month. It was made by members and quilted by Melanie Leckey of Oh Sew Loved.

Thanks to our members who made blocks, assembled the rows, quilted or bound the quilts. We are so proud to be able to give back to our community and celebrate modern quilting at the same time.

Fantastic job!
