The Community Quilt Project’s mission is to bring people together in a positive way, to give comfort where we can, and to provide willing quilters with the means to do good works.

The Community Quilt Project began on September 9, 2009 with a quilt for the blogger known as othniel.  Othniel was gravely ill and was due to have a surgery he feared he might not survive.  To help him, Sara Reed had an inspiration came to make a quilt for him bearing messages of love and support from his internet community, written in archival ink on muslin.

A scary diagnosis, a serious injury, a death in the family, caretaking a parent with Alzheimer's, living with cancer....all of it can feel lonely and isolating. In this online world of Daily Kos, though, we have genuine Healers named Sara R and winglion who fill that breach with something extraordinary:  A Community Quilt.

Some of you know about my cancer journey and have responded so kindly. My goal with this last bit of good news is to hopefully, once again, bring more breast cancer awareness.
