Exploring creativity through quilting
Hurricane Florence Recovery Quilt Project
Hurricane Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane the morning of Friday, September 14, 2018, and damage in Carteret County was widespread. Over the past few weeks, the members of CCQG have pieced, quilted, and distributed over 100 quilts from Newport to Downeast Carteret County.
Initially, 15 quilts were donated to Sea Level United Methodist Church, Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church in Newport and Newport Community Baptist Church. In December 2018, 18 quilts were delivered to the Morehead Middle School Blanket Drive for distribution to families of students. In March 2019, 15 quilts were delivered to Elizabeth Pond for distribution to residents of Davis Shores. The remaining quilts were delivered to Carteret Warriors for Recovery for distribution.
