A quilt drive is taking place in Kalona for the children of Japan affected by last month’s earthquake.  Marilyn Woodin with the Quilt and Textile Museum says they are accepting quilts for infants and children.  Woodin shares they received a request from the “Patchwork” magazine editor in Japan with the need for blankets for children.

She says they are looking only for the smaller quilts because they are easier to ship.  Woodin adds the biggest quilts needed would fit a twin size bed.  She says quilts are being accepted at the Quilt and Textile Museum until Thursday, April 28th.  For more information, contact the Quilt and Textile Museum at 319-656-3232 or Marilyn Woodin at 319-656-2555.
