LCQG – FESTIVALOF QUILTS – Charity POSTCARD CHALLENGE

The Lethbridge Centennial Quilters Guild is raising money for charity by selling postcard size quilts at our Festival of Quilts June 14 and 15, 2019.   All proceeds from this fundraiser will be donated to the Chinook Regional Hospital Foundation. Everyone is welcome to contribute using fabric from your own stash.  This is an excellent way to use up scraps, orphan blocks and other odd bits!  Fabric postcard ideas abound online.

If you would like to participate, here are the rules:

  1. Each postcard must be 4” x 6”.
  2. Each postcard must have three layers – top, filler and backing. The top can be any design you choose. The back should be plain so that it can be written on. The filler can be any type (batting, interfacing, etc.) but a relatively firm filler is best.
  3. Bind by stitching the 3 layers together with a satin stitch or by using a traditional binding.
  4. Drop off your finished postcards at Fabric Fusion or Lethbridge Sewing Centre before June 10.

All postcards will be sold for $5.00 each at the Festival of Quilts

Have fun and thank you for your donation!
