Founded by Linda Arye in 2000, Quilts for Kids transforms discontinued fabrics into quilts that comfort children in need, including those with cancer, AIDS and other life-threatening illnesses. More than one million pounds of fabric have been kept out of landfills and tens of thousands of quilts have been distributed around the world.

The guild ordered precut fabric kits from Downy, pieced the quilts and quilted them. A Stitch in Time donated its long arm quilting machine, the "AQ Avante,'" to finish the quilts.
