In observance of October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, HAND sponsors an ongoing “Quilt Project”.
Each quilt square memorializes an individual child, but the quilts, as a whole, serve to bring awareness of Pregnancy and Infant Loss to the public.
The quilts are displayed in area hospitals and at our annual Service of Remembrance during the month of October. Please join us in this remembering by creating a square for your baby or someone you know.
Directions For Creating A Quilt Square:
Size: 7″ x 7″ square
Optional: You may include a two inch border around the square, with two, 6-inch ribbons attached to the upper corners.
Any type of cloth.
Puff paint, needlepoint, cross-stitch, patchwork, silk painting, appliqué, etc. Use your imagination.
Square must have the following information: Baby’s name and date, and should be submitted with a note containing the parent’s name and address
