At our December meeting 47 quilts were given out to the following local organizations:
The Whole Child
Women& Children Crisis Center
Whittier First Day
St. Matthias Church for food distribution
We are grateful to these local organizations for providing services for the homeless and for those in need. We are happy to help them with their mission with cash donations in addition to quilts.
A recent Silent Auction of quilts was held to raise funds to aid women in our community with breast cancer through Health Partnership. We received the following thank you note.
Dear Shelley and FSQGer's,
Thank you for this generous gift that makes it possible to encourage breast cancer survivors. Our team is honored to be entrusted with resources we can share with these brave fighters. As we give, we will share the stories with you and share the blessing. We're so grateful for your partnership in the work we do.
Mystery Challenge Quilt - At our November Zoom Guild Meeting members displayed their Mystery Challenge Quilts. Clues were given each month in the guild newsletter explaining each step to make the quilt. Participants assembled the quilts with wonderful results indicating their creativity. The pattern used was developed by Lyn Brown called Magic 9-Patch Next Generation. Click here for the pattern.
Lyn joined us at our November Zoom Guild Meeting and shared information on how she had developed the pattern. Many of our members had taken classes from Lyn and we all enjoyed seeing her again.
Pictured below are some of the quilts made by members.
QUILTS FOR FIRE VICTIMS
What an amazing response we've had from our membership with over 130 quilts donated to fire victims.
Kare, at Sew Creative in Ashland, OR, who has been receiving and distributing the quilts, writes: Thank you and all of your guild members for the extraordinary boxes of quilts. We are so grateful for your kind hearts and talented hands. Families are being "kumforted"...just like you planned.
