We are aware that not all are available to attend the Celebration of Life Banquet this year but may wish to offer support and still be a part of the evening. A generous prolife family has donated a Dutch Girl quilt, otherwise known as a “Sunbonnet Sue” quilt, with 42 squares that has very special meaning and would like to establish an ongoing tradition at the Celebration of Life Banquet.
During the years of the Great Depression, Sue’s popularity reportedly skyrocketed as people yearned for reminders of simpler times. How true these words are today! The prolife world longs for the times before Roe v Wade, when unborn babies were cherished as a blessing from God. In honor of Mary Sue Rose, who began this quilt with her very own hands, we invite you to become a part of this tradition. Mary Sue was unable to bear biological children, but she was mom to many by caring for all that needed her to mother their children. In memory of all babies who have been lost to abortion, miscarriage, or stillbirth…and in honor of those babies saved from abortion, we invite you to donate a square in that child’s name.
The quilt, along with the names, will remain on display in the Right to Life of Louisville office all year and a special prayer for them said at monthly board meetings. The quilt will also be on display at the banquet each year. Each square & name is a $50 donation, renewable annually.
