Handmade Memorial Quilts

 

Honoring and Remembering Loved Ones

 

A Quilt of Love is made up of nine quilt squares, created by donor or recipient families, representing the circle of donation. We currently have 22 quilts honoring LifeNet Health donors, handmade by their families.  Quilt 21 - 2015-03-14 70 pct

These small quilts are displayed in LifeNet Health facilities and used in public and professional education programs as a reminder of how donation helps everyone involved in the process.

The quilts are also displayed at donor family events and programs, and are a tribute to those who have given the ultimate gift. To view your loved one’s quilt, click the year the quilt was made at the bottom of this page. The quilts are carefully and lovingly assembled by a group of volunteers when nine completed squares have been received.
