Members are encouraged to make tops and complete quilts at home to be donated to LifeMoves, a nonprofit committed to ending the cycle of homelessness for families and individuals in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. The requested size is twin size (approximately 65" x 80"). Members also have an opportunity several times a year to work at PQ-sponsored Bee Charitable Days where quilt tops are assembled or bound. Quilt tops are sandwiched with batting and backing fabric and machine quilted by PQ members.
Infant Baby Quilts
Members make little quilts from their “stash” to be donated to families in need. San Mateo Health Foundation can take about 20 quilts a month for the Bundle of Joy program for local families. We also give additional quilts to Loved Twice, a non-profit charity that supports disadvantaged babies in the greater Bay Area. Quilts should measure no smaller than 30" on a side and no more than 45" per side. Quilts must be pre-washed prior to your donation to remove any potential contaminates. Flannel backs are nice, but not required.
