Calling All Regional Group Quilters -- 2018 National Quilt
In early America, the quilt was a necessary item of bedding for those harsh winters. Later, they
became collectible and valuable works of art. More recently, the quilt has taken on a whole new meaning
as a means of making a statement of world affairs.
Now it’s time for the Early Ford V-8 Club to create its own quilt in commemoration of our
upcoming 55th Anniversary. Plans call for this quilt to make its debut at the 2018 Grand National
Meet in Dearborn. This quilt will feature squares from Regional Groups throughout the world. Each of these
squares will be individualized with the Regional Group name and location. Regional Groups are
encouraged to decorate their square with scenes or details unique to their part of the world.
Each Regional Group is asked to submit a piece of 100% cotton material 12-inches square. Please
allow a one-inch border to be used for assembly purposes. This will give us an 11-inch square Regional
Group message. In that area will appear the name and/or logo of the group and its location. Various types
of artwork are encouraged to decorate the square with some symbol(s) of the region represented.
Regional Groups are encouraged to be as creative as possible. Here’s a chance to get the quilters in
your group involved.
Once the square is completed, please send it to:
6558 4th Section Rd #211
Brockport NY 14420
We are asking that all completed squares be sent to Milly by Sept. 1, 2017 to give us time to
assemble the quilt top. We will then have it professionally quilted.
If you know how to sew and/or quilt. you are invited to participate in this unique project. Get an
early start today. Let’s see those pins and needles flying.
Also if you know of or use any professional quilt finishers, please send me their name, address,
and phone number so we may speak to them about finishing our quilt.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or would like more information on this project,
please contact Joyce Parsons (512) 515-5266 or e-mail: email@example.com or Milly at
the address above, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or (585) 748-1604.
