Community Quilts

Our community service:

Community Quilts is a service project of Mountain Top Quilters. We meet monthly at Las Fuentes Retirement Center (1035 Scott Dr. Prescott)  for a workday on the 4th Monday of every month except December.  The time is from 9:30 – 2:00. You may park on the west side of their building and enter thru the big garage door, unlocked from 9:30-10:30, after that you may need to enter thru the front door and come downstairs.  Please bring a sack lunch and drink.

We create quilt tops, kits and “sandwich” quilts for machine or hand quilting or tying at these sewing sessions.

Kits for piecing, quilts for quilting or tying and/or binding are distributed at our monthly guild meeting.

These quilts are donated throughout Yavapai County to non-profit hospices, children’s adoptive services and women’s shelters.

If you have questions or wish to participate, please stop by our table at the next guild meeting to learn how you can help with this wonderful community service project.

NEEDED: Hobbs Batting UPC labels from bags or rolls of batting. Hobbs offer a charity program that allows us to save on purchases of our batting for Community Quilts

Current Information:

CONGRATS, Ladies!! We have already delivered
approximately 550 Quilts this year! Pat on the
back for everyone!!! Community Quilts is the
main service project for our guild. We donated
over 700 quilts last year to various non-profit
organizations in Yavapai County. These
organizations include, but are not limited to, hospices, children’s adoptive services, family and
women’s shelters, hospitals, the VA and veterans
organizations, and also, many special local
needs. Las Fuentes allows us to use their space for our
monthly workshops and to store our fabrics and
supplies. We are so grateful to them for their
generosity! Our next meeting is to be announced at
Las Fuentes Resort Village 1035 Scott Dr, Prescott. Please park on the west side of their
building and enter thru the big garage door, unlocked from 0930-1030, after that you may need
to enter thru the front door and come
downstairs. We try to be set up by 0930 and
break up about 200. Please bring your machine and supplies, a sack
lunch and drink, and your happy smiling face and
join us in March!
Look for our table at the monthly guild meetings
and pick up a project, e.g. quilt kits, projects
needing tying, binding or quilting, labels. Bring
your finished tops and quilts by our table in the
meeting room and collect your entry for our new
monthly raffle ticket. Drawing will be done during
our business meeting. ANY questions you have
regarding WHO we donate to, WHAT we can
use/need, and WHERE we meet can all be
answered at our table in the meeting hall at our
Guild meetings.
