This year, Because You Matter received 18 brand new quilts that will be donated to Kaushee’s Place Transition Home, and to the women and children starting their new lives at Betty’s Haven in Whitehorse, Yukon. Thank you to Sarah Craig and Hands2Help for organizing this marvelous quilt drive and for including Because You Matter as the Canadian recipient!

A total of 16 quilts were received from 9 quilters this year. I added in two quilts that were left over from last year for a total of 18 quilts!

Quilts were received from:

  • Strathroy, Ontario
  • Mendota Heights, Minnesota
  • Great Britain
  • Chilliwack, British Columbia
  • The Villages, Florida
  • Knoxville, Tennessee
  • St. Charles, Ontario
  • Saint Paul, Minnesota
  • Simi Valley, California

Each of these quilts was made by hand and stitched with enough love to last a lifetime. Do you want to see them? Drum roll please…

I retired early and moved to a new community. I blog about my adventures as I explore a new lifestyle. I write about quilting, knitting and needlework, about learning to sew my own garments, adventures in the kitchen and in the garden, dancing, hiking, is my playground!
