Every year, our guild sets out to help our local community by making quilts and donating them to charities, such as Casa Teresa, Women’s Transitional Living, Inc., Interval House, Human Options, and Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. We’ve also made pillow cases for the 1 Million Pillow Case Challenge and incubator covers for our local children’s hospital.
QuiltCon Charity Quilts: The Modern Quilt Guild’s quilt convention called for local MQG’s to make a charity quilt to show at the convention and then donate to a local charity.
Update on The Thomas Fire Quilts
I briefly visited a sew in for Thomas Fire quilts yesterday. I went there to pick up blocks in sets to be sewn into tops. They are overwhelmed with blocks. They no longer need blocks. I picked up sets for 6 quilts. I thought I might bring them to Sandra’s class on Saturdays or ? They are now requesting completed quilts, batting or backing. Check out update on Superbuzzy website. Maybe they should back the quilts with more blocks? They have so many potential quilts that they can use machine quilters and folks that will do binding also. Just a brief update.
