North San Diego County's Premier Quilting Guild

At Cuddle we get asked lots of questions. Our favorite one is, “What do you need most?” Our answer varies from need to need and season to season.

Right now until early December we need 13”x17” placemats. Typically these are made with Christmas/Holiday fabric on one side, any fabric for the back, and batting between them. The edges can be finished with either “birthing” or binding techniques. They are for the Oceanside and San Marcos Senior Centers.

Also needed for homebound seniors are 40”x40” wheelchair quilts. We have lots of panels that can be used for these. Just frame the panels with borders of coordinating fabrics. This technique can also be used to make baby/toddler 40”x40” quilts. We also have baby/kid panels that can quickly be turned into cute, colorful quilts. Baby quilts are probably our most needed item anytime of the year. Most of these go to Marine/military babies. We also use this same size for toddlers at Angels Foster Fam- ily Network.

This 40”x40” size is small enough to do simple quilting on a domestic machine in or- der to complete the project all by yourself…if you want to…but if you don’t you can hand off the tops to us! We at Cuddle appreciate all that you do!

Cuddle will be focusing on placemats during the months of June and July. We have been cutting up lots of 13”x17” pieces to be used for these cheerful projects. The city of Oceanside has a very large (150+) homebound senior population that along with their holiday meal are gifted with one of our placemats. Both Oceanside and San Marcos Senior Centers also have holiday lunches where our placemats add lots of cheer to these events. Each Senior center hosts 100 diners.

If you have been doing your math that adds up to 350 placemats that we hand off in late November or early December. Last year a few more were requested by each of the centers so we always make more just in case.

You can join us at our workshops during the next few months or you can sew your own. We use Christmas fabrics on one side and a choice of any fabric for the back. Batting is used between the fabrics and you can either “birth” it or bind it.

It is difficult to describe the impact that these small gifts have on those who receive them.

Thank you from Cuddle and the Senior Centers.
