"Blanketed With Warmth" $10 Quilt Raffle and Coat Drive Will Keep Rose Brooks Women and Children Warm

It's super-warm and super-soft. Our Tianello fabric sample quilt. Queen-sized and hanging on the wall at World's Window. A labor of love from the World's Window staff to benefit the women and children at Rose Brooks Center.

Conceived months ago as a project by Jan Buerge, owner of World's Window and her sister, Judy Hartzler, it started as a discussion on what to do with boxes of tencel sample fabrics gathered over the years from Tianello (www.Tianello.com), a clothing company manufacturing in the Los Angeles area and a well-loved clothing line featured in World's Window for many years.

The caring staff at World's Window gamely took on cutting quilt squares and then learned how "knot" the quilt layers together. Judy was the solo seamstress and taught everyone else how cut the pieces, stretch and pin the layers and then knot and roll the quilt until we all met in the middle.

The easy conversation and laughter around the quilt was no less friendship-binding than the mothers and sisters who have knotted and quilted in generations past.
