FAWCO Foundation Friendship Quilts

Every year since 1995, FAWCO members throughout the world have contributed their creativity and sewing talents to the FAWCO Friendship Quilt.

This international collaboration has resulted in a unique collection of stunning handmade quilts. The greatly coveted finished product is raffled each year at the FAWCO annual conference in order to raise money for The Foundation's programs and charitable causes.

Friendship Quilt 2014

Our new Target Program is Women’s Rights. The rights we enjoy in developed countries open to us “a world of possibilities” – choices of all we care to achieve.  Our foremothers in the 19th century, deprived of a political presence, often used quilts to express their aspirations for social change, and raise money to support what they believed in. The names of many traditional blocks (Temperance T, 54-40 or Fight, Tippecanoe and Tyler Too) illustrate causes they supported.

What rights would you fight to protect?
