Gilbert Block Quilt Group spreads comfort and cheer

GILBERTSVILLE – A recently established quilt group called the Gilbert Block Quilt Group (GBQG), which meets in Gilbertsville, has been sewing up a storm this past year. These quilting hobbyists have made it their mission to use their talents to spread comfort and cheer to young and old in the communities of Chenango, Otsego and Delaware counties, with their hand-crafted quilts.



The Gilbert Block Quilt Group, with less than thirty-five members, meets two times a month at the Episcopal Church in Gilbertsville, for “working meetings”. Most often fabric, some of which has been donated by fabric/quilt stores, is cut into quilt “kits” to be sewn at individual members’ homes. They raise funds for other needed materials by participating with a “boutique” in the annual Major’s Inn Quilt Show in Gilbertsville. Despite the newness of this group, they have been making a huge impact toward their feel-good goal.
