Responses to #QuiltsforQC

House block by Rebecca

We have been receiving some amazing emails from people all over who want to help with this project, but this morning I received one in particular that I thought it was important to share:

"I am a Muslim American in the US and am soooo touched that you have started this project. My dream is to do something like this for the Syrian refugee families coming in also. We have a couple of families in the area that barely have living arrangements.

I hope you can spread along my sincere thanks and appreciation to the organizer and all those that helped in any way. Having 5 generations of my family in the US, I often wonder how many more will I need before I am considered “American” by some. Its so disheartening the rhetoric that has been allowed since the new Presidency."

As I said in an email yesterday... we may not be able to fix the world's problems with quilts, but that doesn't mean we can't try. :)


  1. I am a long arm quilter in Alberta I would be happy to quilt for you.

  2. Dara, thank you for that offer! We're still in the early stages of getting the blocks together at the moment, but if you would send us an email ( I will reach out to you when we get to the quilting stage! :)
