Delivery of a Special Quilt.

Remember this quilt?
This was a special project I did, where I went to work with at risk teenagers  at 5 different school in the NYC area. Each teen worked on a square that represented to them "What is SAFE." 
It was very hard on the heart strings to hear some of the stories. Some were full of hope and some had a hard time thinking of anything or anyplace.  But we all had FUN working on the project together.

The kids got to draw, add fabric, do some hand sewing, and/or also learn a bit of embroidery to bring their block alive. It was a super loving and special, life enriching experience, and I loved every moment working on it.

I'm so excited...
This quilt will be given to it's new owners.    (It's a surprise!!!   I can't say yet!)

Let me just say they are an amazing couple who have put together a program that has helped many kids, empowering them to be leaders while providing a safe place for them to grow. How great is that?

The event was to happen exactly when the Sandy came ripping through NYC... It was delayed until tonight. 

Tomorrow, I hope to have some nice pictures of the quilt and who this quilt will live with... ;-)
Stay tuned!




  1. What a wonderful way to introduce quilting to the next generation and to have a tie in that makes it so meaningful to each person participating (including you!). This quilt definitely talks! As always, thanks for making the world a better place Victoria!

  2. Wow...that sure tugged at my heartstrings. I'd better grab a tissue for the next post!

  3. What a fabulous quilt! The new owners will be blown away especially with all the hands involved and the story behind the piece. I love the level of concentration with the girls making their blocks! It is alway fun to give a quilt to someone that is not expecting such a gift!
