Patchwork partnered with 'Hugs from Home' by sending quilts to Iraq.

This unforgettable picture shows one of our heroes wrapped in a Patchwork quilt as he journeys home on a gurney.


Thanks from ministry gift recipients

"I wish to thank you from my heart for the wonderful and generous gifts that you have so unselfishly given to our mission. Your many beautiful quilts, cards and financial support for shipping will touch so many hearts and boost the morale of many troops in harms way.

The time and love put into each quilt and card will bring encouragement to so many, who at times wonder if those at home are behind them. Each and every stitch sends love and prayers for safety and comfort to all of those who receive them … the notes attached express the perfect message to all about God’s love and being cared for by Him ... times get rough in Iraq and your gestures of love will not be forgotten.”

— Kathy Carlson, Hugs from Home
