UFO SWAP & RETURN- July Meeting

Brigit suggested a fabulous idea for the UFO Swap & Return this week! The quilts created from the UFOs could be donated as part of our community service project! If you recall a few months back we took a poll on which local organization we would be donating quilts to as our community service project. The majority of our votes went to Pleasant Place: “… provides a safe, nurturing environment for pregnant and parenting teens who are victims of abuse or neglect or who are homeless while they continue their education.”

So, here are some details to consider if you want to participate in this fun UFO SWAP /Community Service project.

• This is more like a UFO SWAP & GIVE instead of return since the finished project made from your UFO will be donated to Pleasant Place. 

• Projects created from the UFOs should be quilts. They can be tied, hand quilted or machine quilted and bound.

• You will have 2 months to finish the quilt using the UFO you go home with this week. Finished quilts will be due on Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at our monthly meeting.

• Minimum quilt size is 35″ x 35″.

•We are doing this as a part of Swim, Bike, Quilt’s annual 100 Quilts for Kids charity quilt drive!  I’ll be uploading pictures of our finished quilts and linking them to the linky party at the end of September.
