Philanthropy Quilts

I make and give away many quilts each year to primarily three separate groups.  One is Prayers and Squares Quilt Ministry, which is one of my main passions.  I meet with this group every week at my church where we make quilts for people going through tough times, like cancer or heart disease, lots of reasons.  I received a prayer quilt six years ago when I was going through breast cancer and it made a hugh impression on me.  After I completed all my treatments I started this group at my church and it has been going strong for five years now. 

The other group I have made quilts for is Royal Family Kids Camp, another of my passions.  I have been a part of this group for nine years now.  We take about 30 kids ages  7 through 11 who are in the fostor care system in San Diego County to a camp for one week of safe fun.  They are abused and abandoned children that we lavish with God’s love and treat them like royality.  We give them a handmade quilt which the children really do cherish. 

The other group is called Linus Project which is quilts for children in hospitals. This quilt is one that I have made for this project.  I love all the bright colors and the movement in the quilt.  If you look closely you will find a giraffe.
