Quilts 4 Hearts

Here are some jolly little friendship blocks which were fun to make. They're now on their way to Robyn for QUILTS 4 HEARTS.

* * * * *


makes and distributes quilts for kids in need...
Kids with heart disease...

hence the name, "Quilts 4 Hearts".
We make.. and accept donations of.. quilts and quilt blocks.

Quilts 4 Hearts was started in 2004 to provide hope to children (and very occasionally adults) who have Heart Disease. Our hope is sent in the way of quilts and bears.

These children
would never see such a thing as their quilt. They are all in need of operations to save their lives, which they can't afford, as their families are very poor.

Our quilts are a small way of giving them Hope by knowing that there are others thinking of them and who are aware of their situations.

Our quilts are distributed through Heart of Hope, a missionary organisation who are working with these precious children and their families in their communities.

Quilts 4 Hearts is volunteer based and non - profit and we accept donations from Quilters (or non quilters alike) from all over the world to donate in whatever capacity they can....
one block at a time! One block can finish a quilt for a child.

Many people (or few, depending on who is available) help in making blocks, assembling quilt tops, then quilting tops to become quilts.
At this point most of the children we support are based in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and surrounding areas. Hong Kong has now been added to Heart of Hope's program as well.

Heart of Hope runs programs in these areas, funding and raising money for kid's operations where they can and providing much needed follow up care with food programs and much much more.
This is a very worthwhile cause
and we feel making quilts for these kids is important. It is something especially for them and something they would never see or hold otherwise. Their beautiful faces tell the story. IT GIVES THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES HOPE.
