This year, we thought we’d get a jump on Christmas with Placemats for Meals on Wheels.  We are asking that all of the placemats be approximately 14” X 18” in size and that they are two sided! One side can be Christmas patterned and the other can be another season’s fabric or vice versa.  Each person is asked to make two or more. Any placemats not needed for Meals on Wheels will go to the Quilt Show Boutique planned for October 2022.  The challenge is to get them done over the summer months and turn them in by the end of September. Drop off is at Carol Lifford’s office at 163 Schoolhouse St, Coquitlam (Near the Silvercity Movie Theatre on Schoolhouse).  Thank you for participating in this worthy Summer Challenge!
