I am inspired by this - as Program Chair for our Quilt Guild we do make many, many "charity quilts" every year. However, the reason behind this and your way of getting it done is somethign I hope you won't mind my copying. Am shortly embarking on a "Comfort and Remembrance" Quilt - made for families of those who have lost a son/daughter in Afganistan - this is being done by several women but there have been many others made for the same reason by other groups. It is heart warming to know our skills can at times be used to help those in distress.

Your review is exceptionally inspirational and encouraging. I know just how much time and effort you put into this project and I'm in awe of your quilting and organisational skills as well the amount of compassion you showed so many people by taking on the project. This is beautifully executed, thank you for sharing.

Thanks for all the kind comments. Dale C (and others) by all means print this review and share it. I'm hoping that this review will give others some ideas for using theirs skills, as well as the talents of others, to benefit whatever causes they feel are worthwhile.

What an extraordinary way to touch the lives of so many grieving co-workers and friends. I look at this beautiful quilt as not only for the benefit of the surviving children, but as a beautiful way for so many people to work through the pain of loss. You had a great idea and your efforts really paid off. Thank you so much for sharing the whole process.

What a wonderful idea. And, as a non-quilter, I'm always in awe of anyone who can do it. Beautiful quilt.

It's so good to have something concrete to do as we grief. And sewing gives us a great way to do that. This is an amazing project that you led, not just in raising money for the children which is wonderful but also in that this was a way to help so many deal with their grief in the process.

Beautiful quilt and inspirational review! Thanks for sharing the "how to's" and "learnings" from this project.

What a wonderful idea for fundraising. I think I will offer this suggestion up to the Band Booster Board next year. This year, they are raffling off a koa rocking chair, beautifully handmade by one of our boosters. I think this would be a great way to bring more parents together to support the group. Wonderful review. Do you mind if I print it up and bring it to one of our meetings? Lovely quilt too!
