These quilts were carefully selected to be colorful, the material was to be 100% cotton (for softness), squares were cut to size, the batting placed in the center and then all the quilts were sewn and tacked. This project was a joy for the ECA club and they enjoy serving their community. Each of the Centers received 25 Lap Quilts.
