UFO Disposal Service

Stack of Quilts

What happens when you lose steam on a project?

Does it get buried in a box or basket, tucked away where it languishes until your next sewing room purge?

Then what? Do you stare at it for awhile, unable to move forward with it but unable to (gasp) throw it in the bin?

As a solution, I’d like to introduce Quilts for Cure’s UFO Disposal Service!

We want to enable you to let go of some of those UFO’s that are holding you back. Whether you’ve only completed 12 blocks out of 25, or your skills have improved leaving a quilt top behind with messy points and wonky seam, or your tastes have simply changed, we want your quilt tops! For a small donation, we will finish the tops and donate the completed quilt to one of the 40,000 US kids currently in treatment for pediatric cancer.

What: Quilt tops (no blocks, please– sew them together into a top) of at least 36×36 inches

Why: To lighten your load of UFOs and to wrap a child who is fighting for his or her life in a quilt of love and comfort

How much money? : A minimum donation of $25 per quilt top is requested. You can either tuck a check into your box when you mail the top or you can donate online here and put a note in the comment box about how many quilt tops you will be sending. All donations are tax deductible.

Where do I send it? : Address your package to: Quilts for Cure PO Box 1831 Duluth, GA 30096

What about batting,  backing, and binding? : While you do not have to send anything but your quilt top, we are also happy to accept donations of batting (at least 80% cotton) and backing/binding fabric (100% cotton). They can be sent to the same address above.

SHARE: Be sure to share about QFC’s UFO Disposal Service with your quilty friends, guild, local quilt shop, etc!!
