Past Charity Projects

Alamance Piecemakers has several ongoing projects, as well as at least one special outreach project per year.

2021-2022 Special Outreach to Alamance Pregnancy Care Center

Members worked during 2022 to complete our “blocks of the month” sampler series. In October, we presented over 20 quilts to Alamance Pregnancy Care Center – for distribution to the young moms they minister to in their program – and to their babies.

2021 Projects

In 2021, besides working on the BOM samplers pictured above, members continued to make what we call “quilts for kids.” Before 2021, we had donated our kids’ quilts to a contact at UNC Hospital, where they were distributed to pediatric cancer patients. Starting in 2021, our kids’ quilts were distributed to meet various needs more locally through Project Linus. We donated over 40 quilts to Project Linus in 2021.

2018 Special Outreach to Meals on Wheels

In 2018, we made over 300 placemats for Meals on Wheels – one for every participant in the program that year!

2018-2019 Special Outreach to Benevolence Farm

In 2018 and continuing into 2019, we worked on making “Blocks of the Month.” Members turned in blocks of a specific pattern and color scheme, which were then combined to make six quilts presented to the residents of Benevolence Farm.

Members were given a new block pattern to try each month, and asked to bring their finished block back to the next month’s meeting. Some guild members contributed more than one block each month! At the end of the block-making effort, similar blocks were assembled together into a quilt top. The guild provided batting and subsidized the cost of having the 6 completed tops quilted.

The block pattern for this purple-themed quilt is called “Folded Corners.”
