Diary of a Donation

Step 1:  Starts with the Block of the Month program.  For a few years we had the 'presenter' of the BOM make a sample block and donate it to the guild.  We compiled 20 blocks with a WHITE or very PALE CREAM background fabric.
Step 2:  Have a program night:  Stitching Relay Race.  We split the members into two groups.  Each group had a pile of strips and had to make sashing and 9-patch units.  The losing team brought goodies for the rest of the year.
Step 3:  Have a sewing day and assemble the blocks, sashing and 9-patch units into a top.
Step 4:  Have one of your members generously donate the machine quilting & binding.

Step 5:  A family turns up who could use a fabric hug.
