CUDDLE QUILT, July 2022

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 Family 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!

Suggested Quilt Sizes ...

Baby/Wheelchair/Angels Receiving Blankets:     40"x40"

Baby/Toddler Quilts:     40-45"x40-50"

Lap/Teens/Adults:     48-60"x60-76"

Breckenridge or San Pasqual Academy:     64-70"x76-90" 

Workshops ...

Quilt In a Day (QIAD):     1st Thursday of each month --  9-12:30pm

El Corazon Senior Center (Oceanside):     3rd Thursday of each month -- 9-3pm

San Marcos Senior Center:     4th Monday of each month -- 9-3pm

SAVE THE DATE! SILENT AUCTION (July 2022 Update)

SILENT AUCTION AND MEGA SALE – Just about 63 more days!

As you’ve heard by now, our Silent Auction and Mega Sale has a new venue!

We will be at The Fields Church, located at 2265 Camino Vida Roble in Carlsbad on Tuesday, September 13 from 9:30-noon. We are looking forward to welcoming hundreds of people to this beautiful space to shop.

This event is free to attend and open to the public so we hope you will invite everyone you know, quilters or non-quilters to this fun event and MAJOR FUNDRAISER of the year.

Pick up a flyer at the July meeting and post it somewhere to help spread the word! We will have free refreshments, and door prizes throughout the morning.

The Theme Baskets and “Experiences” will be auctioned but we will also have sever- al “Buy Now” tables with Fat Quarters, Notions, Books, Patterns, Kits and Stash Builder Bags of fabric.

We also have received a large donation of beautiful fabric and have yards and yards of flat folds ready for instant purchase.

In addition there will be several gift items for sale, perfect for that little something to give your quilting friends.

We are still looking for some Big Items that might appeal to our broader community of shoppers so consider a donation of tickets, passes or gift cards. Your donations are not just limited to quilt related items. The more variety the better! Just a couple more meetings before the BIG EVENT so don’t delay. Please contact Susan Stanchfield at 650.766.8085 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to arrange to drop off your donations or you can bring them to the meeting on July 12.

Thanks in advance for your support in making this event the biggest fundraiser in our Guild’s history!
