  • Lynn Koolish Is Our Speaker In July
    CHARITY CENTRAL UPDATE
    We have donated over 265 quilts to charities so far this year!

    Many, many thanks to all of you who have supported Charity Central. Your generous donations of fabric, time, and talents have brought much joy to our community. You are a wonderful group of caring people.

    Every third Friday of the month we have a kitting day in which we take the donated fabric and put it into kits so that tops canbe produced. We take the tops and add batting and backing and quilt them. Then we add the binding to finish a beautiful and useful quilt.

    We need help in all areas to produce these quilts. We need fabric and batting donations. We need volunteers put fabrics together to make the kits as well as to quilt and bind them.

    If you can help or would like to become more involved in this project, please let us know. Clean out your stashes, get rid of those fabrics that you can’t remember why you bought and help many great causes.

    Contact Jo-Ann Sandstrom at charitycentral@wsqspokane.org

    2017 RAFFLE QUILTS
    We are proud to present two quilts for this years’ raffle,
    "The Garden Imagined" and "A Garden Mosaic".


    "The Garden Imagined"is 78" X 94" and was quilted by Nicki Sue of Heartbeat Quilting in Spokane Valley, WA.



    "A Garden Mosaic"" is 64" X 80" and was quilted by Sew-Into-Quilts & Sew-Fix-It, LLC (Twila Prociw) in Deer Park, WA.

    We thank Mary Sue Suit for her permission to use her technique for our path in "The Garden Imagined" and for allowing us to modify her design "Pierre" in making "A Garden Mosaic". These are included in her book "A New Turn On Drunkard's Path".

    WSQ members were asked to design and make blocks to represent what they'd see in an English flower garden. Thanks to all who made wonderful and creative blocks. These blocks are incorporated in both quilts. "The Garden Imagined" is a design by Naomi Hall, a WSQ member, and is ONE of a kind. A WSQ original.

    Each quilt will also have two pillows presented with each.





    Drawing for the quilts will be on the last day of our 2017 quilt show, at 3:00 pm on Sunday, Oct 22 at the Spokane County Fair & Expo Center. "The Garden Imagined" will be drawn first.
