I named them "Hope" and "Believe", because I really believe in my heart that PEACE is the answer and I hope to make a difference…", Elena says.

Sunflowers symbolize endurance, hope and unity. In the light of recent events sunflowers became a symbol of peace for Ukraine.

Local Quilters Raise Funds For Ukrainian Refugees #FranklinCANHelpUkraine

Project brings together quilters from region to respond with heart and hands

Hope for Ukraine,” a queen size blue and yellow quilt made by members of Yankee Quilters Guild, will be raffled to support efforts to resettle Ukrainian refugee families arriving in Massachusetts. The approximately 80" x 80" quilt features a central sunflower, the national flower of Ukraine, and 24 large Log Cabin blocks in the bright colors of the nation’s flag.

The proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to Ascentria Care Alliance, a Worcester nonprofit organization which will offer housing and other assistance to refugees arriving from Ukraine. Tickets are $5 each or 5 for $20. Raffle tickets are available at Emma’s Quilt Cupboard in Franklin; through Yankee Quilters’ Facebook page; or by emailing yankeequilters11@gmail.com. Checks may also be mailed to Yankee Quilters at PO Box 53, Franklin MA 02038. The winner will be drawn June 14th in Franklin.

The quilt was created by members of the Guild to reflect their concern for the health and safety of the millions of Ukrainian citizens whose lives and homes have been threatened by the current invasion. The “Log Cabin” quilt block is a traditional design symbolizing the importance of the hearth at the center of the home. For this quilt, Yankee members made the center square white, a symbol of peace, rather than the conventional red. The quilt will be on display at Emma’s Quilt Cupboard beginning April 19th.

"I am very proud to be affiliated with this guild. The members are very generous with their time and creativity,” said Cindy Lynch, Vice President. “To the Ukrainian people, may God be your guide through this stressful time."

Quilters all over the world are using their talents to support relief efforts for Ukraine. “There is a long tradition among quilters and other crafters to support those in need and Yankee members immediately answered the call when the idea was proposed in March,” said Susan Speers, a member from Franklin. 

The quilt has been custom quilted by Jim Lynch, of Bumblebee Quilting Service in Monson. The Guild greatly appreciates Jim’s donation of time and materials to this project.

The back of the quilt is a yellow sunflower print, with a central label surrounded by yellow and blue hearts, using a pattern by quilt designer Bonnie Hunter, of Virginia. The label is machine embroidered by Beth Brosnahan of Palmer.

Fabrics for the quilt were generously donated by members of the Guild and Cathy Racine, of The Charlton Sewing Center in Charlton, MA. Creative energy and materials were contributed by members of Yankee including Diana Hatch of Holliston who hand-appliqued the sunflower; Pat Mulhall, of Sherborn, who donated the batting; Cindy Lynch, of Bumblebee Quilting Service, who combined the blocks and prepared the back; and more than a dozen members who donated their time, talent and supplies in support of Ukraine. 

#FranklinCANHelpUkraine
