The Logan Piecemakers discussed the organization’s raffle quilt project and several other upcoming activities at their recent meeting.
Every member will have raffle tickets available to sell, and tickets also will be available Sunday during the Top of Ohio Ag Tour stop at the Bunker Hill Farm owned by Bill, Susan and Joe Shultz.
Funds raised through the raffle will assist with the group’s charitable activities.
The quilting guild also is working on a project to create “River quilts” that will feature continuous pictures of various sites along Mad River. Once completed, the quilts will be displayed at the Logan County Museum and Orr Mansion.
A work day for the River quilts is planned for 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 5 at the First Church of God, 315 Liberty St., West Liberty.
Another discussion item included National Quilt Day March 15, when the group will work on preemie quilts for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. These quilts will go home with the infants.
The goal is to make at least 26 quilts in a size 24” by 36.” The public is invited to join the effort, and no quilting knowledge is necessary. Members will teach anyone who is interested, including children.
Members also reported that successful projects were presented at the Logan County Fair this summer, and individuals are continuing their projects, from a wedding quilt to valances, flower applique and wool rugs.
The Logan Piecemakers will conduct its regular meetings at the Bellefontaine First Church Of God, 1000 E. Brown Ave. until the Orr Mansion is finished with renovations. Meetings are on the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m.
