Quilts for NYC 

To honor the men and women whose lives ended prematurely on September 11, 2001 and also the rescue workers, law enforcement, and support staff that give of themselves so freely, I have begun collecting quilt blocks. These blocks will be put together into quilts to be donated to the people of NYC. All donated squares will be made into quilts for this project.

These quilts will be collected by the Sunshine Quilt Guild for delivery in January. This gives us enough time to make a significant contribution. We've set a goal of 300 quilts. It also allows time for the relief operation to be sorted out enough to determine who best to receive the quilts.

GUIDELINES:
There aren't any specific guidelines regarding size, design, or background fabric. It's fun to see the creativity of the contributors. I plan on using fabric strips as needed to piece the blocks together. I'll be very happy to accept and use your blocks no matter your choices.

I will be accepting blocks until mid - November.


Send blocks to me at:

Bonnie Domeny
9647 Folsom Blvd PMB 126
Sacramento CA 95827

Please include your email addy so I can let you know when they arrive and to notify you when I have pictures posted of the finished quilts. Also please mention if it is alright to use your first name and last initial on the label.

So far I have recieved over 200 blocks from all over the U.S., Canada, and England. Most are embroidered with patriotic and rememberance designs. One lady did several squares of lovely roses. Another lady did lighthouses. There are hearts, and angels all over the place! Just today I received 26 pieced star blocks from a group of women in Iowa. Way to go America!!!

Sorry for the lack of updates. The final count for blocks is 337!!!! Fabulous work everyone. The quilts are currently being pieced and quilted by Quilting Angels (Sunshine Guild members), Ruth S., Deb L., and Judy L. They are helping me to complete this project because I am caring for my grandparents whose health has been getting worse. I will be recieving photos and will post them asap.

Also a final destination for the quilts has been selected. The Children's Hospital of New York -Presbyterian will receive the quilts in honor of the fallen heros of September 11th.
