Quilts for Olympians: The abuse experienced by the USA Gymnasts prompted my interest in offering these young woman hope and support of healing in their spirit. In contacting Michigan Attorney General office I have heard from an athlete who wanted a quilt. The California law firm representing these woman, is reviewing this. They would distribute the quilts to maintain privacy for the young women and for us as guild members. Consider sewing a Small lap quilt or A Pillow Case (either is ok) with a heart somewhere on it. This is a great way to use stash, sew that simple design, help these young woman heal a deep sorrow.
Size: a small lap or large crib (approximately: 45 x 50 and ADD a Heart on front ( need not be large , Just symbolic )
Need Ideas on a simple design? Can only make the quilt top but interested? Would donate backing? Glad to make a small lap? Any kind of interest is ok.
