Quilting for comfort


Weatherford Democrat

On Feb. 20, the Quilter’s Guild of Parker County met to quilt quilts for the Comfort Quilt Program of the Guild. This program provides a queen size quilt to each Habitat for Humanity homeowner and at least a twin quilt for each of their dependents, lap quilts to various nursing homes for wheelchair bound residents, baby quilts to various children’s organizations such as Grace House, baby to twin size quilts to the Rainbow Room and twin quilts for the Pythian Home and A Place for Grace. During the afternoon, demonstrations regarding different quilting or binding techniques were presented as well as one on one direction and assistance.  Approximately 25-30 quilts of various sizes were worked on and completed.

The Quilter’s Guild of Parker County meets every third Thursday in the Great Hall of the Grace First Presbyterian Church, 606 Mockingbird Avenue with visitation at 6:30 p.m. and the meeting at 7 p.m. For more information call President, Judy Fitzgerald, 817-771-4325, or visit www.quiltersguildofparkercounty.org.
