Gilda's Club of Southeast Wisconsin


When I heard that Gilda’s Club was opening in Milwaukee and my local quilt guild, North Shore Quilter’s Guild of Milwaukee, had been asked to donate three quilts for their community room, I knew I wanted to be involved.

When I saw the room, a large narrow, brightly lit space, and learned the community room was where many of the club functions would take place, I knew immediately quilts about community was what I would want to see on the far wall.

After the three quilts were designed, I realized the quilts needed not only to be about community, but also the “look” of being made by the community. I presented the idea of a “slice” quilt to North Shore Quilter’s Guild and asked if they would be interested in participating. Even though it was a very ambitious project, I received an enthusiastic “Yes”.

Members of the guild made the 90 blocks. I assembled them and Terri Kirchner expertly long arm quilted them.
