Quilts 4 Cancer

My sister works for the Make A Wish Foundation of Utah. Since she started working there I have become very interested in helping these children who are fighting cancer and other illnesses. I am so excited that the Utah Quilt Guild has challenged us to donate quilts. I am currently making one for a small boy but am planning to make and donate many more!
We are proud to support the Utah Quilt Guild 2008 charity project - QUILTS4CANCER.

13,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Childhood cancer is #1 disease killer of our nation's children
35% of children with cancer die.

Nothing warms a child's heart better than having a quilt of their own to comfort them through the long and strenuous process of treating cancer. Wouldn't it be great if each child between newborn to the age of 20 that is fighting this terrible disease had a quilt? How can you help? Donate a Quilt!

It is the goal of the Utah Quilt Guild to have 250 quilts by 2008 Quilt Festival (September 2008). The quilts will be taken to the area hospitals and given to the children in treatment. Make a difference in the lives of others.

Quilt Requirements
40" X 60" or larger
Tied or Quilted
Quilt Label on back with your name

We will give you a 5% discount off any quilt that we quilt for the Quilts 4 Cancer Charity! Just let us know.

As an added incentive to participate, your name will be entered into a drawing for each quilt you make to win a "Trip Around The World" quilt pieced by Terry Young and quilted by the Corn Wagon. What a great incentive!

Utah Quilt Guild for more information about this great cause.
