Community Projects

In 2007, the Cut-Loose Quilters of Orange made three art quilts for the Orange Main Library and History Center in Orange, CA, and donated them the library.  All three art quilts were designed by Jamie Fingal "Adventures Start Here" with objects, characters and colors to delight all children.  The main quillt measures 4 feet high by 14 feet wide, with side panels that are 5 feet high by 2 feet wide.  The art quilts were custom made for the wall in the children's section.  The large quilt was divided vertically, and the side panels horizonatally, following a pattern and color pallette.  The artists who worked on this project were:  Peggy Calvert,  Joanell Connolly, Cindy Cooksey, Anne Copeland, Jamie Fingal, Vickie Valdez Green, Stacy Hurt, Julie Schlueter, and Terry Waldron

Jamie Fingal worked with Furnishing Hope to coordinate the making of 18 "Welcome Home" house quilts for each house that Habitat for Humanity built in San Juan Capistrano in September 2010.  Each house quilt is 12"wide by 16"high.  There were 13 artists in this project, and some made more than one, including some of the Cut-Loose Quilters.
