Buzz, buzz, ….. busy bees! What a great way to get to know others in the quilt chapter and learn new “tricks.” If you love quilting, Centreville QU has a wide variety of bees available for you. Daytime or evening, whatever your preference, we’ll find a match for you… or start a new one!

BLOCK OF THE MONTH
Block patterns will be included in each month’s newsletter and members are encouraged to make them using your own fabric colorways. The blocks will all be “puzzle” blocks. There are a couple that may be somewhat challenging but many will be familiar.
Once we start meeting in person we will begin making blocks to turn in for someone to win.
The 2022-2023 CQU Community Service Committee, Lessa Porter, Karen Lensing, and Mary Feurtado, is partnering with organizations such as Fair Oaks Hospital, Cornerstone’s Laurel Learning Center, American Red Cross at Fort Belvoir, and Joshua Hands. Through these partnerships, the following items have been identified as immediate needs: tote bags with pillows, tote bags without pillows, small teddy bears and baby hats as well as 36″x36″ or 36″x40″ baby quilts (please use bright, kid-friendly fabrics). Donations of baby burp cloths and bibs, lap-size and larger quilts, 50″x70″ Veteran quilts, NICU blankets, walker bags, and seat belt pads are also welcome.
CQU members are encouraged to make at least one item a month! Our monthly Saturday Sit and Sew (the first Saturday of each month) is an ideal time to create community service items while socializing with other members over Zoom. Look for the link in our monthly newsletter or in email reminders.
Save your cotton fabric scraps! The committee is ready to take these scraps and donations to either create quilt kits or to fill dogs beds for a nearby beagle rescue program.
Longarm quilters: Please consider donating your services for community service. Those interested can submit their name, address, email and phone number to Lessa Porter.
PATTERNS FOR COMMUNITY SERVICE
