Festival of Quilts

Thank you to all who made the 10th Annual Festival of Quilts a Success!

Friday, April 4 & Saturday, April 5, 2014
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 
Spiritual Life Center at Cunningham Children's Home, Urbana, IL

The Festival of Quilts celebrates a special tradition at Cunningham; since 1895, every young person that comes to live at Cunningham is given a hand-made quilt to enjoy and treasure forever. The quilts are lovingly created by United Methodist Women and other members of the quilting community throughout Illinois who care about Cunningham youth.

Quilt Awards were announced on Friday, April 4. Professional quilt judges reviewed the show quilts and awarded ribbons to the best quilts in various categories. You can see the winners here: http://www.cunninghamhome.org/events/festival-quilts/festival-award-honorees-2014.

Special thanks to all of our sponsors

Orange Krush Show Support for Cunningham Youth

The Orange Krush donated a one-of-a-kind quilt that embodies the Illini spirit. The queen size quilt (90.5” x 109”) featured 20 vintage and contemporary t-shirts celebrating the Orange Krush and Illini basketball- past and present.

Special thanks to the Krush for their ongoing support of Cunningham.
