Pay it Forward: Quilt the World 2022

Jan 4, 2022 9:00:00 AM / by Cayden Crowise

We often find ourselves working tirelessly on quilt after beautiful quilt. We make them for ourselves, for our family, and our friends. After all, nothing quite compares to the comfort of a homemade quilt. In fact, wrapping yourself up in a quilt is like receiving a big, warm hug from a loved one.

It’s almost as amazing to feel that quilted hug as it is to give that gift to someone. What if you could offer that same amazing comfort to someone all year long?

You can.

 

 

Covering the World in Quilts

Starting in January 2022, AccuQuilt is partnering 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 are on a quest to donate their time and quilts to a charity of their choice, and we’re inviting you to join us on this big quilting adventure! Every week in 2022, one person from our teams will donate a quilt to a charity of their choice.

Join the quilt quest 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.
