Charity and Community

Hello fellow Quilters!

The 2018 charity is Meals on Wheels. We will be making placemats that will be distributed to their clients along with the meals to brighten their day!

Placemats should be made in one of three sizes:

Small – 10″ x 14″
Medium – 12″ x 18″
Large – 14″ x 20″

There are no requirements in regards to designs or fabrics. Just think of something that would brighten someone’s day. We have official Guild labels printed to sew to the back!

We will have challenges and demos to help build the number of donations we make as a guild. There will be prizes awarded!

We are encouraging participation from the quilting community as a whole, and ask that you share your makes and spread the word using the hashtags #modernquiltplacemats #centralohiomqgcharity2018 and please tag our Instagram @centralohiomqg so we can see what you’re making!

Along with the creative side is a call for donations. It was discovered that many of the clients were giving the donated meals to their pets. To help, we will collect unexpired coupons for pet food, and items for pets, as well as placemats. When we have a demo day we will have a pet goods drive. The PetCare Wishlist includes: dog and cat food (wet and/or dry); pet toys; leashes; collars; pet food bowls; flea & tick treatment(s), and; stain and odor remover.

Please check back for updates on challenges and demo days. They can be found throughout  our 2018 Meeting Minutes.  If you have any questions, or need a mailing address to submit your placemat(s), please email our Charity Chair Lissa, at

Happy Quilting!

2017: We are excited to announce our 2017 charity: Days for Girls.

{A written wrapup regarding this charity effort is forthcoming. For 2018, please note that it is our understanding, local quilt shop Sew to Speak will be doing this same good work. We are going to donate some of our remaining supplies with them. They may have a charity Sew In planned for March 31, 2018. Contact them for more info. posted 3/9/18}

Our first sew-in will take place at the CML Dublin Branch library on Saturday, March 25!
