Cascade Eagles Pathfinders Donate Quilt Proceeds to Locks of Love

The Cascade Eagles Pathfinders, from Burlington, Wash., finished up their Sewing honor by sharing the love.

Seven Pathfinder girls earned the Sewing honor by each making a pillowcase, and learning to sew buttons, snaps and hems. They also learned about quilt history and patterns.

Each girl designed at least one quilt square, using the theme of the "Fruits of the Spirit" with joy, love, peace, gentleness, faith and patience illustrated with drawings of animals and butterflies and one picture of two girls with the words "best friends forever."

After wondering whether to keep the quilt or sell it, the club decided to sell the quilt and donate the proceeds to Locks of Love.

Locks of Love, as described on their Web site, is a nonprofit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children under age 18 with long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis.
