Community of Kindness: Helping Others through Charity Quilting

Jun 15, 2022 10:00:00 AM / by Cayden Crowise

It’s hard to believe that six months have flown by since we started the Quilt the World campaign. If you’re not familiar, in January 2022, AccuQuilt partnered up with Moda Fabrics and Baby Lock in a pay-it-forward campaign called Covering the World: One Quilt at a Time.

Quilters and designers from AccuQuilt and Moda Fabrics have been donating their time and quilts to a charity of their choice throughout the year. Each week, one person from our teams will donate a quilt to a charity of their choice. Plus, we’ve invited all quilters to join us!

 

Let’s take a moment to celebrate what we’ve accomplished so far!

How Many Quilts Have We Donated So Far?

Coming together to create and donate quilts is a great way to make a big impact in our communities – and we’ve done great so far.

 

As of June 13th, we’ve donated a total of 185 quilts!

 

You can keep up with this exciting quilt charity on social media by following the #QuiltTheWorld2022 hashtag on Instagram or by joining the Covering the World Facebook group to see everyone's donations and to share your donation journey as well.

 

 

Your Favorite Organizations To Donate To So Far Are….

  • Project Linus is the largest recipient – with 42 quilts.
  • The second-largest recipient is Alamance Regional Cancer Center – with 13 quilts.
  • The third-largest recipients are Make a Wish Sandpiper and Quilts of Valor – with 11 quilts each.

 

These donations are wonderful! Of course, we absolutely love seeing all the donations going to local charities as well. So many of you have chosen to gift your quilts to smaller organizations. Remember, you can donate to any organization – big or small! The choice is up to you.
