100th Anniversary Lap Quilt Challenge
- Written by Betty Anne Brown Davidson, Honorary Life Member
With the cooler weather approaching, members often feel like hunkering down with fibers in hand (“To keep warm?”, one might ask). Such fabric could be knitting or crochet wool or fabric like cotton, synthetics or wool. At this time of year, some just feel like making something for someone.
The Centenary Committee to the rescue; we have the perfect project for you! In the lead up to 2020, we want to create a yearly event or project to increase anticipation for 2020. This year, besides the 100th anniversary logo competition, we are offering members the opportunity to participate in the lap quilt/blanket challenge.
- On the idea of a prayer shawl, a lap quilt can be made either by an individual member or a small committee or the whole parish council, while praying for its beneficiary.
- The lap quilt size would vary, being enough to fit over your body and legs to keep you cozy if you were sitting in a chair.
- Lap quilts can be made for a child, a woman or a man.
