You have been issued a Summer Time Challenge
Your Community Quilts/Outreach Committee would like you to make a place mat
or two or more, not necessarily in sets.
The place mats will be given to the local Meals-on-Wheels
for distribution to their clients at Christmas Time.
The place mats should be in keeping with the Christmas season.
AND WE would like you to make the mats reversible, making them a more functional than a
a one seasonal item. So this is what we want but don’t let that scare you, we graciously accept what
you can offer.
Pattern and design is your choice.
The finished size is about 13 x 18 inches.
This is approximate, we will not be measuring them.
We hope you will think this is a perfect little project to use long ago orphaned or practice blocks, or perhaps an opportunity to practice machine quilting, or an opportunity to use the decorative stitches built into your machine. (You know … the ones you have been wondering about how they really look.) Perhaps all of the above will go into your place mat.
Smaller pieces from our groups’ stash will be available at our June Quilt time, on June 7 and our June 21st meeting. This should help get you started on this Summer’s Challenge.
