Stitch Supply Girl Scout Hearts
Stitch Supply Girl Scout Hearts

Our community has been struck with sadness this past weekend. We lost 3 Girl Scouts, a Girl Scout Mom, and another Girl Scout is in the hospital. While working on their community service project of picking up trash they were struck by a vehicle. Can you help wrap these families in love? We are organizing for each family to have a quilt – or 4 quilts total. We need your help to make this happen.

Details of the quilt blocks:
We will use Cluck Cluck Sews’ Heart Tutorial in both the 5″ and 10″ block sizes for the blocks in this quilt. Keep in mind the blocks will be 5 1/2″ and 10 1/2″ before being sewn together. Each heart will be green with a low volume background. The green should be a shade Girl Scout green. Think bright and cheery kelly or grass greens or shades there of. Small prints on these hearts are great. The background should be low volume in shades of white or cream. Small prints or bits of color are okay in the background. Solids are acceptable as well. If you need fabric, we will have cut blocks kits at the shop for those of you that can swing by and pick them up. Please press angled seam allowances towards the green fabric. Press the center seam open.

We are also looking for local volunteers for piecing the quilt tops together. We are also looking for volunteers to quilt the quilts. Please keep in mind they will have green cuddle for the backing. Batting will be provided.
Please mail or drop off completed blocks to:
Stitch Supply Co
913 S Hillcrest Pkwy
Altoona WI 54720

As per a timeline, we are hoping to have the blocks over the next two weeks, or by Nov 17th. We will add updates for number of blocks collection and amount needed as well go.

Thank you so much for all your help.
Stitch Supply Co.
