Activities

There are numerous activities that happen with standard reoccurrence within the Guild. Below, you'll find explanations of many of the activities.


Fat Chance

Fat Chance is an opportunity for members only to win fat quarters of fabric for their stash. Check the theme of the month, bring one fat quarter (18`` x 22") to the meeting, and enter your name in the drawing. Usually there are enough entries for two drawings.

Chemo Lap

Our Chemo quilts cover adult patients at Breslin Cancer Center to keep them warm while the patients are in recliners during chemo treatments. The patients keep their own quilts, using them for every treatment. Quilt tops should be rectangular at least 44” wide by 60” long. Maximum size is 60” x 75”. You provide the quilt top, binding and if possible coordinating fleece backing that’s 6” longer than the quilt top. Elaine will add polyester batting, do the quilting and binding, and deliver the quilts. Several quilts are needed each month for new patients. These quilts are much appreciated!

President's Block

As a tribute and thank you to each CCQG Board President, guild members are asked to make an Ohio Star block in the president’s choice of colors. For the 2019 - 2020 President’s block, John Putnam has asked that the blocks be black and cheddar Civil War repro fabrics. Colors can be in any position (cheddar star on black background or black star on cheddar background). The block size should be 11" unfinished, 10 1/2" finished.

Please sign your block, bring it to the guild meeting and leave it at the Vice President’s table.

If you need cheddar fabric, you can check the president’s table for some.
