Look what came in the mail today … a quilt kit from Quilts for Kids, a non-profit organization that provides comfort quilts for hospitalized children. They recently partnered with P&G’s Downy brand; and Quilts for Kids receives 5 cents for every purchase of specially marked Downy. The program is called the Downy Touch of Comfort.
The kit provides all the fabric for the top and is already precut into squares and strips. It even includes a nice woven label. How cool is that!
You do need to provide the batting plus backing. And, once completed, you’ll need to provide postage to return the quilt. The quilts will then be distributed to seriously ill children all over the country. Here’s a picture with spokesperson Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy:
The March issue of The Quilter Magazine features an article explaining the importance of the Downy Touch of Comfort Program to seriously ill children all over the country. This program has enabled Quilts for Kids to create over 10,000 quilt kits to send to quilters across the country.
