Hello everyone!

The ICAN Chapters of Alaska are doing a Cesarean Quilt.

If any Alaskan wishes to participate the rules are simple.

You must be Alaskan, or had your c-section in Alaska

You must have had a c-section

 

 

Each women gets a 10x10 quilt square to decorate as she sees fit to represent her c-section(s) experience.

She can use anything do decorate the fabric; paint, markers, sewing, crayons, applique, etc. The choice is yours.

After the squares are returned our amazing volunteer quilters are going to sew them all together. We plan on displaying the quilts where ever we can, all over the state!

 

Please contact your local ICAN chapter or you can PM me to get your square.

our first quilt is nearly done!!! 

you should see what these women are creating; it's gonna be so beautiful.

If you would like to be a part of this, please contact me.
I can put you in touch with someone local that has squares or mail one directly to you.

 

We will continue to make quilts as long as women are having c-sections.

1 in 3 pregnant women will have a c-section in 2012.

This project is to bring awareness to the public about high cesarean rate in the US.

We will be hanging the quilts in businesses across the state. One might be in your community soon.
