What do you get when you combine a small town, locally owned quilt shop with amazing people, lots of fabric, a Twilight movie marathon and food? Seven (7) new and wonderful quilts that will brighten the hearts and laps of persons living with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) daily.

Robin Fields, owner of Fields Quilting & Craft Supplies, and her daughter Amanda Ambrose decided they wanted to be a part of the 2013 Hopes & Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS and volunteered to host a quilt-a-thon at their lovely shop. The opportunity to make this gift of love prompted Linda Pacelli – a new quilter from New York – to volunteer a few hours of her time while she was visiting Gloucester.

Fields made the process easy by precutting fabric into kits. This didn’t stop Rochelle Kyle from fussing cutting fabric to finish a patriotic quilt.

One special moment came when Jennifer Ulrich paid a visit to Fields on Saturday. The Gloucester native’s grandfather was diagnosed with ALS 14 years ago and she was overwhelmed with the generosity of the quilters to have one of the quilts donated to him. In this video, Jan White shows Jennifer the quilt tops that had been finished prior to her arrival.
From the entire Dream Team at Quilters Dream Batting we wish you a very safe, happy and blessed Easter weekend.
