Quilting is a hobby of passion. Hours of painstaking work that start with selecting the perfect pattern and choosing a palette of colors, to carefully cutting and piecing teeny pieces of fabric and, finally, creating the delicate designs from thread that hold the quilt together. The end result? A fabulous cuddly blanket, or gorgeous wall hanging to brighten your home…and the knowledge that you’ve not only purchased something useful, but something that comes from the heart.
Created by the talented Quilting Bee volunteers from the Aurora Center for Active Adults, each quilt is donated to sell, with all proceeds going to the Active Adults Special Projects Fund. The Special Projects Fund purchases resources to provide opportunities for enrichment, education and experiences for Aurora’s active adult population.
