The Quilt Angels

I want to share with you a special lady and the wonderful way she shares her talents with others.
Lynn Graves, who owns the BEST quilt store called "Little Foot", located in Chama, NM, has a project that is dear to her heart she named "The Quilt Angels".
Lynn and other volunteers piece the quilts, another volunteer in Santa Fe does all the quilting on them.
The quilts are given to the New Mexico State Police station located in Chama for children who have been displaced for one reason or another. Each patrol car has at least one quilt in the trunk for that special child.
The NM State Police are not the only organization Lynn supplies quilts to. Some of the other organizations are the Battered Women's Center, the Elder Hostel, the North Central (NM) Community Based Services, and the Santa Fe Quilting Guild who distributes them to the Children's Cancer Center at Christus-St. Vincent's Medical Center located in Santa Fe.

  1. That is wonderful. There is a group of women in Columbus who do similar quilts for the police. I wish shipping wasn't so high...I'd send fabric!!!
