Tatyanna, from Olive Crest accepted 30 quilts from Stitches for Kids. The group has been very busy. They even made the table topper Tatyanna is holding for Olive Crest's office manager, Angela Allen. The table topper and quilt on the right were made from a donation of fabrics from Joy Rasmussen (Angela's mother). Joy was a CVQG guild member.
