QuiltAid USA 2010

We are excited to have been invited to participate in QuiltAid USA 2010!  QuiltAid USA supports not one but two great causes! The fabrics come from the “Collection for a Cause - Hope” by Howard Marcus for Moda Fabrics. Purchase of these fabrics supports The ALS Association, whose vision is “to care for and support all people living with Lou Gehrig’s Disease as we leave no stone unturned in our relentless search for a cure”.

In addition, funds raised from QuiltAid 2010 will be donated to the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia. The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital is dedicated to the treatment and care of women who suffer horrendous childbirth injuries, known as obstetric fistula. The Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital relies entirely on donations from overseas to fund its vital work of improving maternal health, reducing infant mortality and empowering women.

How Does QuiltAid USA work?

Similar to Patchwork Party, QuiltAid USA is an opportunity to visit multiple shops to create a finished quilt!  There are a total of twelve blocks, each designed by well-known Australian and U.S. designers.  Only six shops have been chosen to sell these blocks - two blocks for each shop.  In addition, each shop has created a unique finishing kit using the blocks. 

The blocks we are selling:  Bless My Home by Helen Stubbings (left) and Home to Bunnyhill by Anne Sutton (right).

Our Finishing Kit (below) features pillars and posts, pinwheels, and a center block featuring our signature Little Garden House with the verse "As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.  Joshua 24:15"
