Kept In Stitches

Confessions of a fabric hoarder

About a month ago my friend Tedi Patterson told me about The Garden of Innocence by the Sea, a non-profit organization that she has worked with in the past. It really got me thinking about what I could do to make a change in the world. This weighed heavy on my heart and I quickly came to the realization that I would be making quilts for these babies. Each quilt is only an 8 inch square. The ashes are wrapped in one of these quilts before they are placed in a burial urn. I’ve asked my friends at the Valley Modern Quilt Guild to help me make as many blocks as possible. And, this next week I will be asking my friends at Ventura Modern Quilt Guild to help as well. My father is a wood-worker and he is going to assist me with the urn construction. I realized that with all the strife in the world right now…mass shootings, fires…it’s very important for me to help in any way that I can. My goal is to have 200 of these quilts by Christmas time this year. The video below contains more information about The Garden of Innocence. Please watch it…thank you.
