Quilts from the Heart

KPQG’s current service project is “Quilts from the Heart.”  We are making 150 quilts for the Crisis Center in Manhattan.  An average of 150 children are served by the center each year, and our goal is providing each of them with a quilt of their own.  Quilts are made in various sizes for boys and girls from infancy to teen.  These are not intended as bed quilts, but rather “cuddle and comfort” quilts.  Funding for the service project comes from donations and from our annual “Trash to Treasure” auction, for which members clean out their sewing rooms and donate items to the guild, which auctions them off to other members to stock their own sewing rooms.
