Quilt Guild crafts donation for charity

    Murphy – Members of the Modern Quilt Guild do not do anything halfway.
    For the fourth straight year, the local crafters have created a collaborative quilt that will be donated through the Charity Quilt Challenge.
    This effort by 24 members includes a collection of different tiny houses, appropriately being donated to Habitat for Humanity in Fannin County, Ga.
    “This challenge was super fun for us as we got a peek into the talents and diversity of our group,” said Janelle Warren, co-vice president of the guild and program coordinator. “Once our homes were complete, they were assembled as the foundation for an even bigger home.
    “Our talented Gayle Cowdin custom-quilted multiple design elements into the heart of our home. We thank all our members who contributed and proved that it takes a village to make a quilt.”
    Charities that previously had quilts donated to them were the Cherokee County Arts Council, REACH domestic violence shelter and HAVEN Children’s Advocacy Center.
    Chris Hall of Habitat for Humanity of Fannin and Gilmer Counties said the program was thrilled to receive the beautiful quilt and was nearing completion of a family’s home in Fannin.
    The guild meets at 5:30 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month, except December, at Bless My Stitches Quilt Shop on Andrews Road. Visitors are welcome.
