Today's featured Quiltsy member is Susan Funk of SusiQuilts. Susan lives in Menifee, CA, (southern California). The charity Susan chose to lift up through QuiltsyCares is Binky Patrol, a nationwide organization dedicated to providing blankets (called "binkies") to children in need of comfort.
Binky Patrol is very special to Susan because she was looking for a charity that would benefit children in her community. The Temecula, CA, chapter of Binky Patrol provides binkies to four local hospitals, a foster care organization, and the California Highway Patrol.
"I donated two small quilts, one for a boy and one for a girl," Susan adds. "They both have bright, fun colors."
Susan, who has been quilting for about 25 years, has been a member of the Etsy Quiltsy team for the past 5 years. Of all the quilting items Susan creates, her favorites are quilted table runners and toppers. "They are such a great way to decorate your home and change up for the seasons and holidays--the possibilites are endless!
