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 quilt-making process. One person might cut fabric for a quilt from our HUGE stash of fabric, while another might sew the top, back and binding. Some do the quilting, while others enjoy sewing on the binding. Members are welcome to do any, or all of the steps in making a quilt for Philanthropy. See The Philanthropy Process below.
Philanthropy Sewing Day:
In the past, BCQG has hosted a Philanthropy Sewing Day each month. We are actively assessing our options, and plan to announce a new location for our monthly sew days, beginning in January 2022. Until then, we continue to provide kits, and receive quilts at our monthly guild meetings.

Many members make and donate quilts they have created especially for Philanthropy, using their own fabric stash. Philanthropy has it’s 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:
Many BCQG members give generously of their time, talents and stashes. Our Philanthropy Process is truly amazing and so very rewarding to be a part of.
