Bethlehem Quilting Queens

 

c qq 2015 InSanc2The Quilting Queens (previously the Tie-and-Talk Quilters) of Bethlehem Lutheran Church meet to tie and talk on Thursdays at 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. The #1 priority is plenty of fellowship, fun and work. We cut, iron, sew, tie and produce an amazing number of quilts each year. We are always anxious to welcome any and all—male or female—to join us in cutting and tying patch work quilts. Fellowship and conversation runs rampant as everyone is busy cutting squares of cloth or tying a quilt stretched over a quilting frame. We usually have a mid-morning break for refreshments. But mostly it's a really good time—belly laughs and giggles, eating a lot and drinking (coffee, that is)!

 

c qq 2015 InSanc3An amazing number of quilts are produced each year. A few of the quilts are given to Longmont's Our Center. Some are hung on display in the Peace Fellowship Hall and are for sale (proceeds go to support the quilting projects); some quilts go to various mission trips (Pine Ridge and Nicaragua), however, the majority of the quilts are donated to Lutheran World Relief for distribution around the world.

 

c qq 2015 Tie2This year our Quilting Queens produced and distributed approximately 137 quilts:

•  7 were given to our BLC high school graduates

• 17 were provided to Victims Advocacy

• 28 were donated to Lutheran World Relief (LWR)

• 25 were donated to the OUR Center

• 42 were sold, along with 5 pillows and 3 baby quilts, and the proceeds will be given to Lutheran World Relief

 

In addition, we made 35 pet beds which were given to the Longmont Humane Society.

 

c qq 2015 cutting2The BLC Quilters want to thank all who have donated fabric and supplies to the Quilters' projects. Donations of all types of thread and fabrics including cottons, sheets, and flannel, as well as recycled jeans, are greatly appreciated. c qq 2015 cutting3Volunteer help, especially quilt binders, are welcome to join us for some very lively Thursday mornings. All are welcome!
