The Rocky Mountain Threads of Life quilts commemorate individuals who have given the gift of life through the donation of organs and/or tissue. Each square of the quilt is created to represent the thoughts and feelings a family member has about their loved one. The squares are then sewn together by a professional quilter to form a beautiful, memorable tribute. The quilts are displayed at special community outreach events throughout Colorado and Wyoming to celebrate those who gave the gift of life and to encourage people to register to be organ and tissue donors.
