Quilters by the River show a few quilts for foster kids.
One of our local quilting groups (and there are several) has a tradition of making quilts for foster kids; both kids in fostering programs and kids aging out. They recently passed the 1000 quilt mark, in fact, they blew through it! Now at 1031!
They are featured on the front page of the Skagit Valley Herald, Wednesday, December 13, 2017. The photo was taken at their Christmas party on December 12.
This is but one example of the benevolent work done by quilt guilds all over the nation and all over the world. Are you part of a quilting group? Your life will be richer for it.
Thanks to everyone who quilts for the comfort of others!
