Some are old, some are new, and some are torn and with stains from years of use, but the memories and beauty of quilts continue to be passed down through generations.
Every quilt has a story to tell. Please bring those quilts and stories for display to the C.O.A.C.H. (Cancer Outreach and Community Hope) Quilt Walk on Sunday, October 8.
Some of the stories shared will be of loving hands spent in countless hours around a quilting frame as family members or communities gathered to make a gift of comfort and warmth.
Many quilts today share a time of one’s life that will always live forever in the hearts of their families, while other quilts may tell a story of a celebration for the birth of a new baby, a child’s years of growth, or to remember a long work history after retirement.
Whatever the meaning behind every quilt, the artistic beauty of the patterns and the talents of the quilter are truly something to admire.
The C.O.A.C.H. Quilt Walk is free to everyone. Donations to C.O.A.C.H. will be accepted. Bring your quilts for display and share your stories while enjoying the stories of others.
The Quilt Walk will be held from 1-5 p.m. October 8 at Edgewood Plantation west of Rockford, located at 14946 Alabama Highway 22, Rockford. Refreshments will be available during the event.
For quilt entries contact Debra Lamberth at email@example.com or 256-377-4916.
Any donations made to C.O.A.C.H. during the Memorial Quilt Walk are tax deductible and greatly appreciated, as C.O.A.C.H. provides financial assistance to cancer patients and their families within Coosa County, demonstrating a heart of “neighbors helping neighbors.”
