Community Quilts (DDCQP)
EBHQ members are generous by nature and have a long history of supporting our community at large. The Deanna Davis Community Quilt Project (previously Children's Quilt Project) volunteers donate over 1,000 quilts a year to local children and youth organizations, shelters and hospitals. DDQCP volunteers have also stitched larger quilts to comfort communities affected by wildfires and other natural disasters. Individual members often make beautiful raffle quilts for fund raising efforts in local schools and organizations. Members of all skill levels are welcome to join us. Details here.
The purpose of EBHQ is to preserve and continue the traditions, culture, and history of quilting; to promote fellowship among interested persons in all aspects of quilting; to contribute to the knowledge of and to promote the appreciation of fine quilts; to sponsor and support quilting activities; to encourage quilt making and collection; to contribute to the growth of knowledge of quilting techniques, textiles, patterns, and quilt makers through educational sessions and travel.
