Quiltsy Cares March 21-Kelly Wilber

Today's charity donation comes from Kelly Wilber of SewEverAfter. Kelly lives in Snohomish County, Washington. Her Charity is Camano Island Quilters.

Camano Island Quilters is a non-profit group of individuals organized for the purpose of educating its members in all forms of quilting and fiber arts by meeting together monthly, providing classes and opportunities for sharing our love of quilting together.
CIQ has been preparing Comfort Quilts for over 20 years. The quilts provide warmth, comfort, and therapy to children in Providence Children's Center hospital, and the retired nun's at the Sister's of Providence home.

The quilt Kelly has made started with blocks sewn by several different members of the guild. She then turned them into a quilt top, her Mother-in-Law provided the long arm quilting service, and the finished quilt will make it's way into the arms of a child in need of comfort.

A little about the quilt:

The baby quilt I made is approximately 40” square and one of my original designs. It’s called the safari star quilt - the original was designed as a gift for my niece.

Quiltlsy Cares March 19-Mary Swinton

Our Quiltsy Cares donation for today is from Mary Swinton of QuiltingGranny. Mary is from Lincoln Nebraska and donated 9 pillow cases to a church camp.

A quilting friend announced that her church was collecting pillow cases for the summer camp for under privileged children, and that they wanted enough pillow cases so that each child could take one home. Children in need always touched her heart, so she made as many as time allotted.

Mary also donated fabric and money to the quilters in the fire and mudslide areas of California, as well as Quilts of Valor. She also participated in making quilts for her City Mission.
