For a Good Cause

Being a member of the Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guild has it's perks. We have some incredibly talented and well known members and we also get some great speakers. But one of the things that impresses me most about this group of men and women is their caring and charity driven nature. It seems every month or two we have the opportunity to create and donate to some wonderfully appreciative charities.

A few months ago Purl Soho {the warehouse is in Southern California} donated yards and yards of fabric to our guild and it was randomly divided up and we each took a pile to make whatever we wanted. We are to bring our creations back to the March meeting.

I decided to make some pillow cases.

And I had a bit of fabric left to make a drawstring bag, following Jeni's great tutorial. This will be donated, too.

I'm not quite sure if the guild has a plan of who these things are going to or if we get to choose our own charity, but either way they will be loved by a child in need.
