Head over to our Facebook Group for all further details on this project, as well as to take part in a poll to decide details about the project, such as the final size of the quilt. Joan will be posting live updates as she receives blocks for the quilt in the mail.
While the final recipient of the project is still being discussed, St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital as well as organizations that support Veterans, battered women and children, cancer centers, and heart centers are being considered. The people in the Facebook group contributing to this project will have the final word on this.
We hope that this project helps you to get back into sewing, or to make memories with friends from around the world. For example, we have heard stories already of a young girl who wants to learn to sew. So, she will be making a block with her Grandmother. In addition to learning new skills and making a lovely memory, her grandmother is encouraging her to help others through this project.
