In 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2012 foundation members came together to create memory quilts to benefit the Preeclampsia Foundation. Foundation members were asked to design and create a quilt square to honor a loved one lost to preeclampsia or to honor a survivor. The past quilts have been auctioned off at the yearly Saving Grace – A Night of Hope 2007-08 events and were a huge success. In 2011 and 2012, two new quilts were created. The two quilts were displayed at Promise Walks held all over the USA. The quilts have not only raise awareness and research funds, they have also provided an emotional outlet for family members to spotlight their loved ones. The Foundation wants to give those who wish to participate a chance to remember and honor their sons, daughters, mothers, aunts, and sisters. The new quilt will be displayed at Promise Walks around the country during the 2013 walk season.
If you would like participate, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include in your e-mail your full name and mailing address - and the word QUILT in the subject line. A pre-cut fabric square, written instructions, general guidelines, will be mailed to you in early January. There is a strictly enforced deadline of March 1, 2013 to return the completed square to ensure enough time for the quilt to be assembled. If you have questions, feel free to post here or email me.
