Worthy Causes

Most of the quilts on this page were pieced by various groups, mostly from donated fabric, and quilted by Realizations for the cost of thread and batting only. The completed quilts are then donated to one of several agencies, mostly for patients of Hospice or the Cancer Center. Some are raffle quilts made as fund-raisers for non-profit organizations.

Most of the quilts are from the Comforters, a group of Bitterroot Valley quilters in Montana that I was invited to join in the Fall of 2002. The Comforters have been making quilts for Marcus Daly Hospital for more than six years.

This page also includes art quilts donated to various charity auctions in western Montana, benefitting the Daly Mansion, Teller Wildlife Refuge, and Safe Harbor. The title photo is of the finishing stages of machine quilting on the "Daly Mansion" quilt, a group project of the Bent Needlers, a mini-group of the Bitterroot Quilters Guild specializing in applique work.

Quilted November 8, 2002.

This small lap quilt was made by a relative of a patient at the Montana Cancer Center, to be given to another patient, as part of an ongoing program to encourage patients to make quilt blocks for the benefit of other patients. Usually, the blocks are assembled into a quilt top by the Radiology staff, but this quilt top was entirely pieced by the same person.

Quilted August 27, 2002. Backing and batting materials were donated by Cancer Center employees. Our quilting services were also donated to the Montana Cancer Center.
