The Appliquettes Bee is a quilt bee associated with the Austin Area Quilt Guild. Members meet three times a month and work on individual projects, as well as group projects for the guild. The Austin Area Quilt Guild has two charity quilt programs. “Baby Bundles” provides baby quilts to expectant mothers after finishing a prenatal class.  The “Red, White, and Blue” project makes quilts for injured soldiers and their families.  Hundreds of quilts are provided each year by AAQG members for these two projects.
