OCMQG partners with Orangewood Foundation. Throughout the year we create multiple quilts at our Monthly Sew-Ins. In our November Challenge OCMQG members create philanthropy quilts. Every year at our annual holiday party the guild creates at least one philanthropy quilt.

Throughout the year OCMQG may participate in other philanthropy quilts.

Every year, our guild sets out to help our local community by making quilts and donating them to charities, such as Casa Teresa, Women’s Transitional Living, Inc., Interval House, Human Options, and Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation. We’ve also made pillow cases for the 1 Million Pillow Case Challenge and incubator covers for our local children’s hospital.


Every year The Modern Quilt Guild sets a theme and asks all of it’s Guilds to create a quilt for charity. These quilts are displayed at Quilt Con and then donated to charities local to the guild.

Annual Book Challenge

Every year for our November Challenge we ask our members to create a quilt for a child based on a book. Check out the links below to see some of our past challenges!


Every year, our guild gathers together for potluck and quilty games that result in a completed quilt top for charity.
