Community Service Work Day

Every January, my friend Rose Marie hosts, at her house, a Community Service work day, where a bunch of us gather and spend the entire day making as many quilt tops as we can get done. I know that 8 of us working together have made as many as 21 in a day, probably  more. 

We have used the Supersized Nine-Patch pattern from Quiltmaker Magazine for lots of our quilts, and you can find this pattern here: Super-Sized Nine-Patch. Just three fabrics, and two cuts with a rotary cutter — it’s fast, easy, and a great stashbuster. Here’s a picture of one that Rose Marie and Kay made, and I quilted on my longarm. Community Service Work Day

Go download this pattern, get your group together, and have a Community Service work day and see how many you can get done. What could be better than an entire day spent quilting? Well . . . doing it with a bunch of friends for a good cause, of course!
