The St. Peter's Love Quilt Project is working with the St. Francis Outreach Trust in Simon's Town, South Africa, to make special quilts for AIDS orphans. This project has reached out to schools, churches, scout troops, and others who create art squares with beautiful messages of love to the children of South Africa. The art squares teach about equality and the power of supporting children in need. Quilters from around the United States have volunteered to make quilts incorporating the art squares. All funds raised from these events directly support the quilt project and the orphans in South Africa.
