We are the Procrastinating Quilters. We meet the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM. Our location is:
Seville Recreation Center
2640 Seville Blvd
Our next meeting is March 15, 2018 with Jan Cunningham. Jan will present her lecture “Confessions of an ADD Quilter” at our March meeting. Included in her presentation will be over 50 quilts, 5 of which were made by her grandmother in the 1930’s. The purpose of her lecture is to encourage quilters to think creatively and use their imagination.
Remember these upcoming dates:

PRESIDENT’S CHALLENGE 2018
- Create an 8 x 8 banner or small hanging that has your personal wish or prayer as the inspiration. If you wish to attach fringe or ribbons, etc. from the banner, the length of that will not be included in the 8 x 8 size.
- Your flag / banner may be quilted, but it is not required.
- Have a sleeve on the back for hanging. Thread a ribbon or piece of fabric through the sleeve that is at least 32” long. This will be used to tie the banners together for display. If you prefer to not have a sleeve, attach ribbons or fabric strips to each side of the hanging that are at least 12” long for the same purpose.
Bring your Kindness Banner to the May party where we will hang them on display. You may make more than one banner if you like! Overachieving is welcomed when spreading kindness!
