Creating Philanthropy Quilts for the community
The Conejo Valley Quilters has provided Philanthropy Quilts and cash to nonprofits in the Conejo Valley, thanks to our generous members and others in the community who support our work.
The CVQ Guild supports organizations that are annually nominated, voted, approved by Guild members.
The following are the currently approved organizations:
At the October guild meeting we presented a new idea for making the larger quilts James Storehouse has been requesting. We have a lot of donated fabric, but not too much of it is larger cuts, so we have created a “template” you could try, either with guild fabric or with extra fabric of your own, that uses smaller cuts of several fabrics. You can find the template here. You will see that the most it requires of any one fabric is ½ yard, and while it is really simple as drawn, you could easily piece some or all of the sections to make it more detailed. Let us know how you like it!
Stop by the Philanthropy table to pick up a project; add a border or sew some squares together. The biggest need is to quilt. Thank you to all who have quilted. Remember quilting a philanthropy quilt is a great opportunity to fine tune your quilting skills. You can either free-motion quilt, straight line quilt or a combination of both techniques.

Giving Back-- in the aftermath of tragedy
Throw pillows were made by CVQ members as gifts for Pepperdine students and staff who endured the Borderline Bar shooting in Thousand Oaks on November 7, 2018. Eleven pillows were made by CVQ members as a comfort to those roommates and staff who lost Alaina Housley, a Pepperdine freshman, in the shooting.
Pillows were made for Alaina's suitemates and Pepperdine staff.
