Join us at a special First Sunday Workshop on September 6, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at headquarters, 494 Lincoln Highway, Fairless Hills, PA, 19030 to celebrate our 15th anniversary!



This is a huge landmark for the charity, so stop by and say hello or sew some stitches of love into a quilt.

Watch our talented volunteers work their magic; you'll understand why they love putting smiles on the faces of the children we seek to comfort.

These beautiful works of art created on Sunday will become part of the 30,000 quilts QFK donates each year.

Time for a big THANK YOU to one of our most favorite groups!  One of our volunteers here at headquarters came across a Facebook posting recently that The Joyful Quilter in Glenville, NY has donated over 500 quilts to QFK since 2011; our records show 514 in fact!

Thank you, ladies, for your faithful support.

Quilting from the Heart

Posted by pam on July 31st, 2015

The happy faces peeking out from these quilts are the “From the Heart Quilters, ” who recently finished seven quilts for Quilts for Kids. It was a labor of love that brought seven coworkers, and now friends, together for the purpose of giving back.


Michelle McLean, who works for Corvias Military Living in Fort Riley, KS, discovered Quilts for Kids many years ago after a friend received a quilt and learned firsthand the true comfort QFK provides.


They had so much fun sewing love into every quilt that they are already planning another workshop.

Kits featuring one of her newest designs (on the wall behind Jan in this photo) had all the volunteers enthusiastically putting together blocks of bright pastels.

Although Jan lives in Pennsylvania, near Amish country, her shop, Jan Douglas Design, is an online store.  Please click here to visit.  And remember to thank her for her support!
