CHARITY QUILTS

Through their generosity, the Colorado Springs Quilt Guild has donated countless handmade quilts to support charity projects and individuals in need.  Theses projects rely on the generosity of our members with their time and material donations.​ Members can make quilts on their own with their fabric or the guild will have precut kits available. Stop by the Comfort Quilts table at our next guild meeting. We look forward to welcoming you.

Charities we are currently working with are:

Quilts of Valor Foundation - The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.

Safe Passage - Safe Passage gives abused children a voice and enables the healing process by acting as the single source of contact for medical, investigative, and legal services. Safe Passage serves children from birth to the age of 18, as well as intellectually developmentally disabled adults, who are victims of sexual or physical abuse and/or are witnesses to homicide or domestic violence.

Project Linus - At Project Linus, a non-profit organization, we provide homemade blankets to children in need. Our blankets are lovingly made by adults and children from all walks of life and many different sources.

NUMBER OF QUILTS DONATED:  2019  ~  16


COMFORT QUILTS


Comfort quilts are provided to members of the guild and/or their family members who are experiencing a personal challenge in their lives.  When a guild member gets seriously ill, we want to show them our support and offer them comfort by making a lap size quilt. Blocks are collected and made into tops, then quilted. As the need arises, the quilts are presented to the guild member.
