Meet the guild
The MO-KAN Heart Quilters Guild established in 1999 has approximately 20 members.

The MO-KAN Heart Quilters Guild meets the third Saturday of the month at the Waldo Library, 201 E. 75th St., Kansas City, Missouri from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

We have inspiring projects to create every month and makes traditional as well as art quilts. When we started in 1999, we began our charitable work and our community service projects. Below are the works in both areas:

  • group quilts of thanks for our meeting church
  • made baby quilts for Mother’s Refuge and gifts for moms
  • nursing homes for gifts (walker bags, ponchos, lap quilts) for residence and a quilt show
    million pillowcase challenge for sick kids (100 pillowcases)
  • Quilts of Valor for Tuskegee Airman, Overland Park Police Department, solider from Iraq quilts shown at MLK programs, UMKC fiber arts class & Black Studies program, JOCO Museum, St. James UMC annual tea, KCK Community College display, Strawberry Museum show, Leawood Elementary Kids Program, Benjamin Banneker Elementary school, Derek Thomas Academy, Swope Parkway Library display, and Kansas State Fair quilt show, Tracy’s Place (home for girls)
  • quilt made in honor of Ms. Nutter and school children in the Merriam, KS community who integrated in Johnson County school district

We have evolved from being individuals…to become a group of women…who have a love of fellowship for each other like sisters. Our sisterhood was demonstrated when two of our members passed. We came together in total love harmony to assist the families. When one of our members passed, we spoke at her funeral, read a poem, and gave her husband a memory pillow in her honor.
