A community quilt is a collaborative sewing project where each block is created by a different member of the community. Design and sew a 6.5" square unfinished block of 100% cotton fabric and be a part of our community quilt. Create your block either at home or in The Shop and drop it off at your nearest library location by September 1st to participate. The Shop staff will piece and quilt all of the participant's blocks and display the finished project at the Library in the fall!
Please note that quilt blocks will not be returned. If submitted quilt blocks do not meet community standards, staff reserve the right not to include them in the final quilt project.
Shop staff will provide programs and project assistance throughout the summer. For quilters of all skill levels:
In coordination with our Summer Reading Program, this year's theme is Oceans of Possibilities.

A quilt is a multi-layered textile, traditionally made up of two layers of fabric with a filler material. These layers commonly include a woven cloth top, a layer of batting or wadding, and a woven back combined using the techniques of quilting.
To participate in this community quilt we ask that you only submit a block that will be part of the cloth top.
