News From Coffee Creek Quilters

Our pandemic activities

During the pandemic, CCQ hasn’t been able to teach quilting classes at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility, but that doesn’t mean our members have been idle. We’ve been making quilts for donation, learning new quilting skills, and organizing our sewing spaces.

Gail Norby, who teaches in our Tuesday evening class, made the stunning quilt shown here. She took on the project as a pattern tester for Legit Kits, a company that offers paper pieced patterns and kits. It measures 60″ x 80″ and includes 115 different fabrics from her stash. Quilting is by Sally Eagleman, a longarm quilter with our program. Gail plans to hang this quilt in her sewing room.
