Quilt, Comfort and Repeat

Posted by pam on June 7th, 2013

pink quiltNext Door, a California domestic violence center, is one of the regular recipients of quilts from QFK's Silicon Valley chapter, including this bright "sofa quilt" made by Redwood City Girls Scouts.

 

The girls, who are ten and eleven years old, completed the quilt as a troop project and asked Chapter Leader, Bonnie Stearns, if they could add it to the donations this month.

 

She accepted with alacrity and notes that it really brightens up the living room and will be perfect for tv-watching on cool evenings.

ok quiltsQFK Staff members packed up 1900 quilts on Tuesday and Wednesday, most of which were express shipped to comfort children impacted by Monday's horrific tornado.

 

Thanks to to Robin Hill of the Stitchn' Post in OK City and the Dept. of Human Services for getting the quilts to the children who need them. 

 

Where so many have lost so much, it's hard to imagine how to help, but QFK will do what we do best...comfort children with patchwork quilts.

 

Our thoughts are with all the families who are suffering.

 

Needless to say, we need your quilts now more than ever!

When Quilts Fly...

Posted by pam on May 21st, 2013

hopeWhen little Thomas started having seizures, he needed specialty care at Childrens Hospital in the San Francisco Bay area many miles away.

 

The trip was made possible for him and his dad by Hope Flight Foundation, founded by pilot, Douglas Harding, to provide free transportation for children with life-threatening illnesses to major medical centers.  Operating in California, Nevada and Oregon, Doug and his two volunteer pilots have completed 55 medical missions since they started flying in 2008.

 

 

As you may have guessed, QFK keeps Hope Flight Foundation supplied with quilts; we hope little Thomas feels as cozy as he looks.

Quilts are Treasures

Posted by pam on May 3rd, 2013

LACY

Bonnie Stearns, Silicon Valley Chapter Leader, always keeps us up to date on what's going on in her neighborhood. 

 

She recently delivered 31 quilts to LACY (Legal Advocates for Children and Youth) where Tiffany Acosta, Sr. Social Worker, received the quilts and gave the chapter members a tour of the LACY offices to meet other social workers and the attorneys who serve the clients.

 

They were thrilled with the quilts and assured Bonnie that they will be treasured by the kids who have so little, including one of Tiffany's clients who is only 17 and homeless.
