For the 2017 year, we’ve elected to start a new philanthropic adventure! We will be working with the Bill Wilson Center to provide quilts to a range of programs they host to help local foster and homeless youth in our community.
Bill Wilson Center will accept any sized finished quilt tops. Since their services help such a range of people in our community they will happily accept baby quilts, children quilts, and larger lap or twin sized quilts. Our charity chair will hand deliver them to the Bill Wilson Center in which our contact will find the best home/person to deliver donated quilts. See or talk to Sarah if you have any questions about our new charity project for the year.

QuiltCon Member Charity Quilt Challenge – 2017
We were excited to participate again this year in the QuiltCon Member Charity Quilt Challenge. This year’s challenge inspiration prompt was “scale”. Along with a predetermined color palette, our guild set out to form a QuiltCon Charity Quilt committee whom would be responsible for conceptualizing, planning, designing, and making our charity quilt.
As in the past, our finished quilt hung at the QuiltCon East in Savannah, GA the last weekend in February. We are particularly proud of the message our quilt represented this year. You can read more about the significance of the design and message here.

QuiltCon Member Charity Quilt Challenge – 2016
For the second year in a row, we participated in the QuiltCon Member Charity Quilt Challenge. This year’s challenge inspiration was “Improv with Intent” and another predetermined set of challenge colors. After the quilt was hung at this year’s 2016 QuiltCon Quilt Show it has come home to the Silicon Valley and donated as a contribution to Quilts for Kids.
