Submit a Quilt Square
Donate Life Northwest invites community members including donor families, living donors, recipients, and transplant candidates to participate in creating our next Threads of Life quilt.
Click here to view instructions for creating a square, and the registration form: Design Criteria & Registration Form (printable PDF). Squares for the 2022 quilt are due on March 12, 2022. Any squares received after that date will be saved for the 2023 quilt.
I don’t sew and I am not crafty – can I still make a quilt square?
Absolutely! You do not need to be an experienced quilter. We have Ambassadors who love to sew and may be able to provide ideas, support, and assistance. If you don't sew, contact Maria at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options for making your quilt square.
A scrapbook accompanies each quilt. Quilt square submitters must include a registration form with their square submission. This registration form ensures that we capture all the information needed to make the scrapbook, including:
- a brief description of the square
- name of the quilt square designer
- full name of person(s) the square honors/remembers
- date and type of donation/transplant, if applicable
- a 250-word or less personal history of the individual being honored or remembered
- photograph of the honoree (optional, but encouraged).
The registration form may be emailed to: email@example.com
