Welcome Quilts with Rogene Ashford – G24070314

Jul 14 – 20 2024

Join us and work on small ‘Welcome Quilts’, amidst the immense beauty of the land, along with the satisfaction of giving from your heart and your hands. We will be making small lap quilts and they will be sent to the southern US border camps. All levels of sewing/quilting experience are welcome (even those who have never sewn before). Our donation ‘Welcome Quilts’ will be made of flannel/fleece with polyester batting. They will be warm and can easily wrap around adult shoulders, cover a small child or snuggle a baby. Our hope is they provide warmth and comfort to those who receive them. All levels of sewing/quilting experience are welcome, even those who have never sewn before. These quilts are an easy project to learn the basics of how to sew. As we share our time, talents, and quilt together, there will be plenty of learning, chatter, giggles and laughter as new friendships are built and old ones renewed.



  • Ronnie Ashford

    Rogene E. Ashford “Ronnie” from Tulsa, OK, has created “Art” since early childhood. At about eight years old, she got into trouble for creating a very large mural in charcoal on the side of the freshly painted stucco garage! She learned to do embroidery at an early age and remembers playing under the quilt frame while her mom, aunties and grandmother stitched and talked. She studied art through high school and college. Throughout her life, she has tried her hand at many art mediums; two mediums of her art have always been paint and thread. Ronnie is an award winning quilter and is active in several local quilt guilds. She has a small ministry of refurbishing older sewing machines and getting them to gals that would love to have a sewing machine, but cannot afford one. Ronnie currently works as a Mental Health Therapist and an Adjunct Professor at Southern Nazarene University. She enjoys family, friends, art, her chickens, gardening, handwork, music, painting, quilting, reading, walking/running and writing. Her philosophy in life is “Laugh Loudly, Live Fully, Love Deeply and Never Ever Go Backward!’’
