Nearly 50 quilts were presented to the Children’s Inn at NIH on Dec. 15 as part of “100 Quilts for Kids,” an annual charity drive run by the Washington, D.C. Modern Quilt Guild.

The yearly effort, conducted from Sept. 1 to Dec. 1, encourages guild members to make a quilt and donate it to a child in need. Founded in 2010, the guild has grown to approximately 85 members who gather monthly for sew-ins and tutorials at various locations in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
