During the last week of our 10-session Pathfinders program, families decorate a quilt square in honor of their grief journey or to memorialize their person who died. These squares are adorned with photographs, meaningful words, personal items, art, and other decorations.
Once complete, our incredible Volunteer Quilters give their time and resources to stitch the squares into beautiful quilts that are displayed throughout Judi’s House and can be visited by families at any time.
Volunteer quilters can be individuals or groups, who donate their time and materials for each project. If you are a quilter interested in using your talent to help grieving children and families in their grief journey, let us know by completing the form below.
- Each family receives 1 quilt square to decorate.
- Quilt squares are 13.5″ squares with tape edging that outlines the inner 11″ square for families to decorate.
- Typical quilt square decorations include: photographs, small personal items (e.g. pendants, patches, toys), scrapbooking materials (e.g. stickers, feathers, poms), words/images in paint or fabric marker.
- Boxes for Quilter Volunteers will include 9 – 24 quilt squares that can be made into 1 or 2 quilts.
