2022 Collaborative Quilt

Jigsaw Wicklow

jigsaw.ie/location/wicklow

 

We are again making a collaborative quilt in 2022 – this time it’s for our 2022 Charity – Jigsaw Wicklow.

The theme of the Quilt will be “Log Cabin”.  Members are asked to make log cabin blocks for the Quilt.  The finished block size to be 8 1/2  x  8 1/2 inches.

The interpretation of the log cabin block is entirely up to each member provided it is 8 1/2  x  8 1/2 inches.  It will be exciting to see how an eclectic mixture of log cabin blocks becomes a quilt!

The quilt or quilts – depending on the number of blocks received – will be raffled when completed for our 2022 Charity – Jigsaw Wicklow.

Please have your blocks completed for the September meeting.

WPG Members 2020 Collaborative Quilt

This beautiful Tulip and Pin Wheel Quilt was made by WPG members to assist with the fund raising efforts of Wicklow Dementia Support who are currently our designated Charity. https://wicklowdementiasupport.org/

Members collaborated by making the blocks which were then assembled by member Gwen Gould. We would like to thank Gwen for all her work in putting the blocks together. A big thank you also to all our members who made the blocks.

A special word of thanks to Nikki Foley of The Sewing Shed who very kindly did the wonderful quilting for us.
