CVQG Community Service Projects

1.

Placemats for Meals on Wheels As a special project for 2021, we are making placemats to be given out in December to Meals on Wheels recipients in Fayette and Colorado counties.  Our goal is 350 placemats.

2.

Nursing Home Quilts: For almost 20 years, our main community service project has been to make lap quilts for our local seniors.  With well over a thousand quilts made, we hope to brighten their days and show them some CVQG love.

3.

Quilts of Valor:  Originally started to give quilts to wounded veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, the generosity of quilters has expanded its scope as a way to thank any veteran.  CVQG is proud to be a part of this worthwhile project.

4.

Quilted Stories: This project started in 2013 pairs children’s books with quilts that illustrate them.  Plastic bins filled with a selection of books/quilts are distributed to 12 local schools and preschools and rotated regularly.  Librarians and teachers can use these as an additional way to promote literacy while instilling a love for quilts.

5.

St. Mark’s Donation Quilt:  We are especially proud of our partnership with St. Mark’s.  We have helped raise money yearly by providing a quilt for the St. Mark’s Foundation fundraiser.

6.

Gardenia Janssen Animal Shelter Quilt: We provide a quilt yearly for this worthy organization also.

7.

Texas Quilt Museum: We proudly support our museum financially as a Charter Guild.  In addition, members act as docents and are an integral part of the team that changes out each exhibit.
