BEES

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
Members make a block according to the instructions provided. You may make more than one block. Your name is entered one time for each block submitted.  The drawing winner gets the blocks for that month. BOM directions can be found in the newsletters.

COMMUNITY SERVICE

Centreville QU members are pleased to use their skills to give back to the community.  CQU members are busy making items for donations to the Armed Services (mom gift bags—quilts and burb cloths); tote bags for Cornerstone childcare centers; Reach for Recovery Bags for the American Cancer Society; 50×80 quilts for Joshua’s Hands veteran recipients; hats and teddy bears for Fair Oaks Hospital; and NICU blankets for Fair Oaks and Fairfax hospitals.  CQU also made and contributed “surgery dolls” to the local hospitals for use in explaining upcoming operation to children. We also thank our host — Colin Powell Elementary School — with Box Tops for Education labels.  CQU welcomes input and suggestions on how we can best serve our community.  Reach out to Lessa Porter at malessaporter@gmail.com
