This month, the Spring CMQG Retreat fell on the same weekend as the regular guild meeting. Being in two different states did not stop our guild from putting our skills together for a special service project.
Members in Racine, WI sewed right along with members in Chicago to create over a dozen
quilts for families with infants needing intensive care services at Chicago’s Lurie Children’s Hospital NICU.
In Racine, members broke up into groups and assembled blocks, then rows, and even some complete tops.With a coordinated assembly line process, quilters sewed strips, ironed, cut and re-sewed. Below are some sneak peek views of the quilt tops.
These quilt tops will be completed and donated to the NICU at Lurie Children’s Hospital in June.
We have finalized arrangements for our new meeting place. Our April meeting will be held in the lew location at Rush-Oak Park Hospital. Watch for details about how to find the correct room.
