Update from coordinator Caroline McAlpin

"Patchwork Parents is working hard to send quilts to the children of the Congo every 12 to 18 months. Our last shipment was in June 2016. At present I am collecting for the next shipment which will be in January 2018. Please contact me if you have any completed quilts - I will need them by January 15th for packaging. It is encouraging to have many women and sewing groups committed to our project. Donations of fabric are also accepted and greatly appreciated. The dimensions of the quilts remains the same - 57 x 64.5 inches - and feel free to be creative for the finished product. The basic pattern involves 8 rows of 7 8" squares with a 2.5 inch border but all variations are acceptable."

Please consider: Creating a quilt using our instructions, or donating material or wadding. 

For more information about the project, please contact caroline.mcalpin@traumaid.org.
