A rainbow of assorted fabrics lined the wall of shelves in the living room, a quilting machine occupied an adjacent wall and approximately a dozen volunteers were busy Tuesday sorting, trimming and stitching fabric.
The volunteers of the Vacaville Binky Patrol descended upon Carla Murphy’s Vacaville home toting their sewing machines to spend five hours making quilts for children who need comforting.
Genele Rhoads of Vacaville was sewing together fabric scraps of mostly blues, greens and golds into quilt squares.
“I’m a novice quilter, so every time I come, I’m learning something new,” said Rhoads.
