Thank you for visiting our website. Through sew days and a biennial quilt show featuring community service activities, we work to create a community of giving. Our sponsored activities allow productive participation by individuals one day, one quilt at a time. Our craft offers us much beyond a quilt at the end of the process.

So come join us for a sew day, or visit us at our next show in 2019.

Where the Quilts will Go..........
The Blue Line Kids HALOS (BLK HALOS) program, part of the National Alliance for Law Enforcement Support (NALES), is dedicated to providing a quilt to comfort the minor children of officers who have fallen in the line of duty. A beautiful handmade quilt is sent to the department of the fallen officer along with a heartfelt letter, to be distributed to the officer's family. BLK HALOS is in need of quilters to donate new lap or twin size quilts to this program.
Visit www.nalestough.org for more information.

The 2017 4th Biennial Quilt Exhibit

The 2017 Giving Quilt Exhibit was held February 4 & 5 at Lamar Dixon Trade Mart. The show was dedicated to the memory of Noreen Mazzaroppi, one of the founders of the Giving Quilt.
