As many of you know, Mariposa House Hospice is building just down the road from us! I wanted thimbles & things to offer something special to this much needed building. The Town & Country Quilt which I made a few years ago is the perfect quilt to get the community involved and raise funds for the house. With 365 blocks making up the quilt (not to mention the borders!), I felt we could remake the quilt and sell the blocks for $100 and raise over $30,000!!! The fabric has been donated, and all the blocks will be stitched here at the store by a team of dedicated quilters allowing us to donate everything to Mariposa House Hospice!

If you know of a business who would like to buy a block, or perhaps you would like to sponsor a block, please contact me via email or at the store. The original quilt is currently hanging in the store and the Mariposa House Hospice Quilt will be very similar!
