 Straight from the Heart . . . Quilts for Kids

Since 1989 Q.U.I.L.T.S. members have made and donated over 1,300 quilts to the Northeast Parent and Child Society through our  Straight from the Heart . . . Quilts for Kids" project.  These quilts have been very important to all of the kids, from the little ones who sleep better protected by the love that they know has been put into our quilts, to the teens who need something of their very own.

Q.U.I.L.T.S. was a recipient of the JC Penney Golden Rule Award in 1991-92 for this volunteer effort.

Soldier Quilts

Q.U.I.L.T.S. members have also been working to make quilts for our injured soldiers returning home from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  Since this effort began in 2004, the group has made and donated over 150 quilts to our service men and women.
