The MUUC Quilters has donated a dozen baby quilts to a program for women in recovery. The photo below shows the doctor, the social worker, and three women with their babies and their brand new quilts.
Our quilters prepared more than a dozen quilts to HomeStart and Refugee Immigration Ministry (RIM), two of our prior/current “Beyond Our Walls” recipients, and currently are busy at work making children’s quilts for the Tufts Medical Center Pediatrics Emergency Department (example below):
They have also attended to our own: several members who have been ill or house-bound have been presented with lap quilts and were all quite touched.
In addition, the quilters also have made many lap-quilts for hospitalized veterans. Below is one of the quilts donated to Fisher House at the Veterans’ Medical Center in West Roxbury:
Above is a picture of the 2012 Annual Harvest Fair Raffle Quilt named “Autumn Splendor” for its deep tones of russet reds and gold and browns.
A hand-made quilt is raffled off every year. Raffle tickets are available at the Harvest Fair which is typically in early November. Check our home page for the date as November approaches.
The picture below is of the quilt for the 2013 Annual Harvest Fair. It was professionally machine quilted in a special scroll-like design. The soft turquoise, cream, and apple green colors made it an attractive quilt for a queen size bed or wall hanging.
Our 2014 Harvest Fair quilt shown below is a real beauty!
Our quilters also make lovely quilts and reusable, attractive, and environmentally-friendly fabric gift bags for our annual Alternative Fair in December. Anyone who wishes can join in. Knowing how to sew or use a sewing machine is not necessary. The quilters typically meet from 9 to 11 am on Friday mornings in the Supper Room (downstairs.) The MUUC quilters are a hard-working and talented bunch!
