Quilt of Memories
Dedicated to those who have given others the gift of life
About Quilt of Memories
Iowa Donor Network’s Quilt of Memories is dedicated to those who have given others the gift of life. Quilt squares are lovingly created by family
and friends in remembrance of their loved one. All squares offer a unique snap-shot view of the donor’s life through the creative use of fabric, art and love. Iowa Donor Network invites all donor family members to create a quilt square in honor of their loved on who gave the gift of life and send it to us to be added to our newest quilt.
In addition to offering your family a creative way to honor your loved one’s gift of donation, it also serves as a beautiful display for public promotion of the importance of organ and tissue donation. Donor families, groups and other individuals may reserve the quilts to display at personal or community activities. Iowa Donor Network proudly displays the quilts at regional events and gatherings. Quilt of Memories is an ongoing project and will never be “complete” in that we will continue to make new quilts as long as families continue to submit quilt squares.
