January 2023 Good Cheer Quilts

 Apparently we don't accomplish a ton of quilts in the winter. 😑 Must work on that for next year.

This was a group quilt where we each made a handful of blocks, 
then the block designer (me, in this case) puts the quilt together.

These are the self-binding baby blankets, made from a 30" square and a 40" square of flannel.

3 pillowcases

Nov/Dec 2022 Good Cheer Quilts

We made a few quilts the last 2 months of the year. And that's it for 2022. Hope 2023 is wonderful for all of us. And that we make a lot of quilts!

Grandma's blocks

 A guild member was kind enough to entrust us with her Grandma's hand pieced blocks - 220 of them! We sorted them by color, took piles of blocks home, and came back with 6 beautiful quilts. All the quilts below are made with the exact same blocks, just arranged differently. It was so fun to show them all at once at the guild meeting.

October 2022 Good Cheer Quilts

 We had an excellent return of pillow case kits this month - 31 total. Makers were Maggie Morales, Jill Conger, Rita McFayden, and the Good Cheer ladies. Those same four were the makers of the 19 quilts that were turned in. Thanks everyone - it's wonderful to see the big pile of things for Interfaith.

September 2022 Good Cheer Quilts

Our guild meetings started back up this month and several members turned in quilts and pillow cases. 

Members who made pillow cases include Rita McFayden, Debra Dubbs and Toni Collins. Members who brought quilts include Jenn Lutes, Karen Maher, Charlotte Huff, and Escondido South, who made 16. Thanks to everyone who made items - they will all go to good use!

Many quilt kits were taken so we're expecting a good return in October. We have kits for all levels of quilting - you don't have to be a whiz-bang expert to make a quilt a kid will love. Everything but the batting is in the quilt kits, and the pillow case kits are complete and easy to make. Stop by the Good Cheer table at the next meeting!

Good Cheer panel quilts Summer 2022

 The Good Cheer group had accumulated several panels and decided that each of us should take one or more home and make a quilt from it. So we did and these quilts are the result. I'm not going to say who made which ones cause I can't entirely remember! We did these a few meetings back. (And thanks to Sandy for quilting mine when I inadvertently left it at her house.)

Good Cheer Quilts summer 2022

 The first 5 quilts were made from donated blocks given to us by White Elephant. We make excellent use of pretty much everything they give us and we enjoy figuring out a way to make them work.

The rest of the quilts were made by one of the GC ladies or by guild members. Thanks to everyone who takes our kits and brings us back a quilt or pillowcase!
