Byron Woman To Make Quilts For Newtown

A Byron woman said that she was touched by the tragedy of the Newtown mass shooting and wanted to help comfort the families of the victims. 

Julie Love decided that she would spearhead a project to make comfort quilts for the victims. She said it all started when she realized that one of the victims was from her hometown in Utah. 

"I really felt a bigger connection to it I felt like well I will make Emilie a quilt and then I thought no I am going to make quilts for all of our victims," said Love. 

She said the design of the quilt will have primarily green and white and that she has done research on the victim's to find out some of their favorite things to include on their individual quilt. 

They will kick start the quilt-making process on January 19th and Love said she thinks it will take several months to complete of all of them. 

She said she is looking for volunteers to help create the quilts and gather green and white fabric. For more information on how you can help go to comfortingquilters@gmail.com.
