Wellspring Quilt Project

In the state of Colorado, more than 20,000 adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities live with caregivers who are over the age of 60. Recognizing the need for supported independent living, Wellspring, in collaboration with Douglas County, purchased and is renovating the former La Quinta Inn on Wolfensberger Road to begin to meet this need. Thirty adult attendees of Wellspring’s day program will have throw quilts from CRQC ready to welcome them when they move into their first-ever apartments. We are so excited to be part of this important venture!

If you are making but NOT quilting your own top, please contact Carol Shuford with your estimated finish date. Please aim to be done BEFORE our August meeting as our longarm and binding volunteers need ample time.

The WOW factor was through the roof when club members gave a preview of about a third of the completed Wellspring quilt tops at the July meeting. What began as fabric bingo cards for our April activity has turned into some of the most beautiful works of art — and HEART! Keep up the good work! Thank you, everyone, for your time, attention and love sewn into every stitch of these beauties.
