Quilt with Craftsy Cares for the Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project

Posted by on Apr 6, 2013 in Quilting | Comments


Quilters, we need your help! Support Craftsy Cares in partnering with the Blanton-Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Create a quilt of any size and color to give to the Ovarian Cancer Quilt Project anytime from now until May 31, 2013 (quilts must be received by this date). Your quilting will be contributing to a great cause as the program aims to develop effective screening methods and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer. After receiving quilts from Craftsy members an Online Quilt Auction featuring the quilts will run from October 23rd to November 6th to raise money for continuing research.

Craftsy Cares
If you’d like to participate this April, please keep these guidelines in mind when making your quilt:
  • Create any design or pattern of your preference.
  • Please attach the Quilt Sleeve sheet to the back of the quilt so that it is ready to hang and be used.
  • Quilt types needed: wall hangings, lap quilts (54” x 60”), children’s quilts, vintage style quilts, bed sized quilts, and any others that are easily manipulated for folding and storing.
  • Please fill out the Quilt Donation Form and send it along with your quilt.
  • If you’d like you can print the free Craftsy gift tag and include a personal note.

Completed quilts can be mailed to the address below or you can call 713-792-2765 to arrange a drop-off time at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

    Hi, I’m not to good on the quilting as of now but I can crochet and I was wondering if there is an organization that does the same thing you are doing but for crocheted afghans.
    I would love to be of some help. My grandmother suffered so with ovarian cancer and passed away 13 years ago. Any help finding a group would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Charleen

      Sorry, Charleen, we don’t know of any other groups collecting afghans for this purpose. I am sure that there are a number of organizations that would love to get an afghan from you, though. Sorry to hear about your grandmother.

    as a survivor of Ovarian cancer (2 Yrs so far) I am so happy to see craftsy do this.

    Thanks

  4. Its a great attribute of yourselves that you are doing something so creative with such a good cause in mind. I work with victims of ovarian cancer misdiagnosis on a regular basis and so I only too often see people that have had their spirits and confidence totally knocked as they feel this disease has changed their lives for the worse.
    Causes such as this will eventually get us closer towards a cure to wipe of this disease for good.
    Keep up the hard work.
