BCQG Philanthropy donates many quilts, baby blankets, pillowcases, and other items to our community each month.  These items are donated to individuals in need, as well as a wide variety of organizations, including various shelters, child protection groups, Camp Pendleton baby showers, medical programs, etc.

Being involved in BCQG's Philanthropy process is fun, easy, and very rewarding.  A member can be involved by working on any stage of the quit-making process. one person might cut fabric for a quilt from our HUGE stash of fabric, while another might co-ordinate fabrics for pillowcases. There are many ways to be involved in Philanthropy.

The Philanthropy Process:

Many members make and donate quilts they have created especially for Philanthropy, using their own fabric stash.  Philanthropy has its own stash and will share it with all those wanting to use it to make a Philanthropy project.

The Philanthropy process for making a quilt from our stash works like this:


  • Fabric comes from donations and careful purchases made from the BCQG Philanthropy budget.
  • KITS for quilts are made using several different, simple patterns.
  • Each "KIT" contains; a pattern, fabric for a quilt top, backing, binding and batting.
  • "KITS" are available at the Philanthropy table during each Guild meeting and at the monthly Philanthropy sew days.  Members may pick up a KIT to take home.
  • Please return the finished "KIT" at a Guild meeting or a Philanthropy sew day. (Finished means completely quilted and bound. If for some reason you cannot complete this in its entirety, contact the Philanthropy chairperson)
  • The Philanthropy team makes sure each quilt has a label and ready for donation to someone in need.


Along the way, Philanthropy often has additional projects and provides fabric and patterns.  

We welcome any quilts you make from your own stash and can help out with batting if necessary.


The Reward:

Many BCQG members give generously of their time, talents, and stashes.  Our Philanthropy Process is truly amazing and so very rewarding.
