From the very beginning of our guild in 2015, we have been giving back to our community through quilt making and other projects. Here are a few of our charitable endeavors:
The Modern Quilt Guild hosts a Charity Challenge each year in which guilds design and make quilts to be exhibited at MQG’s QuiltCon. The MQG chooses the color palette and the theme. We choose the charity.
This quilt, The James, Not to Scale, was exhibited at QuiltCon in Savannah, Georgia in February 2017.
We donated it to James River Association for its annual auction.
We created this quilt, Road to Home, (right) for the 2018 QuiltCon Charity Challenge. The theme was Modern Traditionalism. We made Road to Oklahoma blocks in a revised way. The quilt was exhibited in Pasadena, California.
We donated it to Henrico CASA.
We make fidget quilts and walker totes for the Memory Center of Richmond and other assisted living facilities in our area.
