Scrappy Trip Blocks

Diana Jasany, a 15 year old North Carolina Girl Scout, is making twin-sized quilts for teenagers aging out of foster care for her Gold Award Project, the highest level of achievement in Girl Scouts. It takes 42 scrappy 12” blocks to make one quilt and Diana’s goal is to collect blocks from all 50 states. Diana is using Bonnie Hunter’s free pattern “Scrappy Trip Around the World” which can be printed with permission from Bonnie’s Quiltville website. You can follow Diana’s project on Diana’s Golden Needle on Facebook.

If you would like to donate one of these quick and easy blocks to Diana’s project, please give your block to Susan at our July 23rd Anniversary Luncheon to send to Diana. If you would like to donate a second block, we will join them into a Love Quilt from the guild.

Love Quilts for July

Members, please help brighten the lives of children by making a “Love Quilt” to donate to DHS at our July Anniversary Luncheon. The quilts should be baby quilt size up to youth quilt sizes. If you have orphan blocks, you can bring them to the monthly Bee meeting to be made into a quilt top. Let’s all help!
