Charity Quilt

At our May meeting we talked about a service project that our guild was asked to do.  Mike Williams, a spokesperson for A Heavenly Ride for Hospice, asked if we would make a quilt to be raffled off at their Poker Run.  

The money raised at the raffle will go to Hospice.  We would love it if you all could help us make a great quilt to give to them for a raffle for a great cause.  Here are the details.

We decided a quilt in Harley Davidson colors (orange and black) would appeal to many motorcycle riders.  The block that we chose is the herringbone block.  
You can find the tutorial on how to make the block on the Stitched in Color website (  For the blocks, please use black, orange, white, and grey.  The finished size of the blocks will be 11" x 22".  Her tutorial says to use 14 strips, but when making the test blocks, we found that 15 strips were needed.  
Please bring your completed blocks to the June meeting so that we can work on getting the quilt finished by July.  Let us know if you have any questions or problems.  Thank you for all your help!!
