Quilts from the Heart

 

Quilts from the Heart is the PVQ Guild’s program focused on community service. Members meet monthly to cut fabric, piece and sew quilt tops of various sizes and designs – from baby quilts and lap quilts for nursing home use to fun quilts for teens. Simple patterns and techniques are used to make the best use of our time. Fabric donations are encouraged through contests where members may win fabric strips or fat quarters. Kits are also available for members to take home and return when completed. The Snuggle Fund collects cash donations that support purchases of batting, backing and quilting services. Education is also a component of these meetings as new techniques are often presented and initially used in these quilts. Agencies benefitting from our quilting include CASA, the Shelter for Battered Adults, nursing homes, the Assurance Home, and even individuals when there is a need. Over 250 quilts and other items have been donated in recent years.
