Product History: These beautiful vintage quilt tops were begging to be turned into finished quilts, so that’s just what we did. We’ve worked closely with Jeanne Staples, the founder of the nonprofit PeaceQuilts to create these special edition pieces for our holiday collection. PeaceQuilts was created as an economic development project that would serve as a a way for Haitian women to earn income, helping to provide not only well paying jobs but to establish women’s sewing businesses, gaining independence, providing for their families and creating community. We hope you join us in supporting them!
