This is a vital project to show our lawmakers and the public at large the faces of the people who need a cure for diabetes. The Quilt for Life now has 442 panels. We need many more in preparation for a showing at the Mall in Washington, D.C. on June 8, 2006 near the Capitol. Please consider making a panel. http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/quilt/ http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/pressreleases/QFL200601.htm http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/quilt/quiltsubmission.htm I can't sew but I was able to put together a quilt by ironing on the message that my son needs a cure for diabetes. Please join us and make a commitment to add a quilt to the Quilt for Life. This discussion can help answer your questions about how to make one if you need assistance. We hope that you will make one and submit it the Children With Diabetes by May 10, 2006 so your quilts can be displayed in Washington DC this summer. We need quilts from the US and around the world. View the quilts online here: http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/quilt/ Wouldn't it be amazing if we could get full participation from all who enjoy CWD and these forums? Please respond on the forum and say YES I'm going to create a quilt for the Quilt for Life.
