WHY THE NAME "UGLY QUILT'?

The Sleeping Bag is a utility quilt made from clean used or no-cost fabrics.

- This simple sleeping bag should not have a market value to assure the homeless are beneficiaries.

- The name indicates the skill level needed for this tied quilt.

-The Ugly Quilt can be made in less than a day.

-A group can make one in an hour.
