Most months of the year, the Quilters on the Rock quild holds workshops to gather and work on charity quilts, or general sit and sews. These are opportunities to get to know your fellow guild members a bit better, and cut/sew/design in a group setting. All skill levels are welcome.
Workshops are held at the regular meeting place, the Methodist Church, 608 N Main Street in Coupeville.
Currently, our charity quilts are given to the MAC unit at Whidbey General, to the CADA childrens program on the island, American Hero Quilts, Seattle Children’s Hospital Neonatal Unit, and just recently to Ryan’s House. We also have a special program to make dog and cat beds for WAIF.
- American Hero Quilts — approximately 63″ x 87″, no flannel or metalics
- WAIF beds — approximately 18″ x 18″ to approximately 24″ x 24″
(these are fabric or upholstery sacs stuffed with small fabric and batting scraps – in overall sizes and thicknesses which can be put into a regular washing machine — or they can be ‘regular’ quilts in these sizes)
- MAC unit quilts — approximately 45″ x 60″
- Child Services — twin bed size down to crib sized
- Ryan’s House quilts — 90″ x 90″, earth tones (avoid flowery or overly masculine)
and lap sized throws, for couch sitting
- NICU — approximately 24″ on one side, rectangular, to cover the crib
