Mothers For Others Donation Project

Mothers For Others Quilt Donation Project

We are so excited to be involved in this event this year, and encourage you to quilt along with us!

Mothers For Others is a group of quilters who had children attending Loyola High School in Montreal. They began making quilts to donate to the Montreal Children's Hospital ICU, and last year gave over 120 finished quilts! 

The demand for quilts is high, and you can help! 

We know you will feel great knowing that your creation will be a source of comfort for a sick child.

To make it fun, the Mothers For Others group have selected a list of Beatles songs (below) from which you can find some inspiration... unleash your creative side! Each quilt should measure at least 36" x 36", although you can make it bigger if you wish, and should be backed with flannel. You can drop off a finished quilt at MQS, or if you're not in the area, mail it to the studio and we will make sure it gets to the organization.

As a thank you for being involved, there are some great prizes!  Each donated quilt will serve as an entry to win either a $100 gift card for Monkland Quilt Studio, or free long-arming from O Begins Owl (certain restrictions apply). 

The deadline for the quilts is March 1, 2024, so you have lots of time to sort through your stash and sew something to make a difference.

Everyone who donates a quilt will also be invited to the event where the quilts are presented to the Montreal Children's Hospital.

Feel free to email the studio if you have any questions, and Happy Quilting!

Please select one of the following Beatles songs as your inspiration!

You can use the title, lyrics, or general theme to inspire your quilt... but remember it's going to be given to a child :)
