The Mt. Tam Quilt Guild makes quilts for non-profit organizations that give them to children and adults who have suffered illness, loss or trauma. The quilt (above, top) was one of the 11 quilts made for victims of the 2017 North Bay fires and the quilt (above, bottom) was one of many made for Marin General Newborn Intensive Care Unit. Guild members have  made and donated quilts to numerous Marin County nonprofits including Homeward Bound of Marin, Senior Access, West Marin Senior Services, Buckelew Family Services, Hospice by the Bay and San Pedro School Family Services.     -Photos courtesy of Mt.
