As members of Irving Quilt Guild, we have the opportunity to make quilts for other charitable organizations in the DFW area. These organizations use these quilts in their fund-raising. Any organization requesting a Keeper Quilt must submit a written request to the Board. If approved, the organization will be notified and asked to attend a regular guild meeting for a presentation of the quilt.
