Freedom Quilts Book: A Thread of Hope

Freedom Quilts book - a Thread of Hope

We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that the Freedom Quilts book – A Thread of Hope – is published! This book tells the story of how Freedom Quilts was started, including our very first trip to New York to present quilts to the 9/11 families.

    I basically read “A Thread of Hope” in one day as I couldn’t put it down. What a compelling story of how God inspired Betty to lead a project that continues to bring comfort to many – only by the Grace of God!! I found myself feeling the emotion of the situation as I read. Thank-you for sharing this story, Betty.
