of some amazing projects where quilts have been used to
make the world a better place. This lecture
will show excerpts from some poignant and powerful exhibits
including the Walter Reed cancer quilts, Alzheimer's Forgetting

guild or organization some ideas on how to start your own
healing quilt project.
