We are proud of everyone who took part in helping with the V-Tech quilt project. Angelina had a vision for creating quilts of hope and healing for families who were directly affected by the tragic events at Virginia Tech this year. Here, in her own words, is an update.
Angelina here, with a great update: Thanks to the efforts of Meryl Ann Butler, two companies have donated all of the batting needed to complete this project. Leggett & Platt (makers of Mountain Mist) sent a 25-yard roll of their new Eco-Craft batting, which is made from a corn-derived polymer. Great idea for a toasty warm quilt. In addition, Fairfield sent three huge boxes of Quilter's 80/20 Poly-Fil. I am so grateful for their generosity. Thank you so much for helping with these quilts. With all of the batting donations that I have received from individual quilters (and there have been so many of you!), I now have plenty to finish 60 quilts. Quilters, please DO NOT send any more batting. I have finalized the revised flyer to distribute to your guilds and shops. Please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you need a copy.
