What is an Ugly Quilt?

That is a question brought up so many times from people who are learning about who we are.

When we make the sleeping bags, we don’t want them to be beautiful so that they will be sold.

THEY ARE FREE to anyone that is Homeless!!

They are made of fabrics that have been saved for that “special project” that we never got around to do. We can mix and or match the mismatched fabrics  into 2-  7’x7′ squares and fill them with those “what do I do with these old blankets” and lovingly tie them with 2- Men’s Neckties to create a warm and somewhat comfortable place for someone to crawl into for a night.

That… is an Ugly Quilt.

Thanks to all of you for reconnecting to our data-base after we retired the original.

We spend a lot of time working in the “computer age” trying to stay up to date with all of the information that we have received from all of you.

Our 30th Anniversary Signature Quilt became too large for a quilt due to the overwhelming number of volunteers that we have. So, we turned it into a seventy two feet long Scroll. We still have a few spaces available to add your group name and location.
