Welcome to the Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Quilt Project.

The Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Quilt Project was created to promote greater public awareness of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD), while honoring the strength, courage, and commitment of all those born with a CHD and their families.

The Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Quilts are a series of quilts, with each quilt honoring 42 individuals with CHD. The quilts are being constructed of heart blocks, with each block being dedicated to a child or adult effected by Congenital Heart Defects. To have a block dedicated and included in the CHD Awareness Quilts see our block registration page.
Our Mission: To promote greater public awareness of Congenital Heart Defects (CHD) and honor those born with Congenital Heart Defects.

The CHD Awareness Quilt Project promotes greater public awareness by offering the quilts to organizations and individuals to have on display at their CHD related events through our hosting program.  We hold a free quilt show, annually, with all of the completed quilts on display and our annual fundraiser,
The Jason Schweinberg Memorial.
Proceeds from the Jason Schweinberg Memorial enable us to purchase AED's for schools and other facilities and honor a child living with chd's. .
Since 2004, the CHD Awareness Quilt Project has purchased 20 AED's and honored 11 CHD children..  To learn more about the AED's and Child Honorees, please visit the Jason Schweinberg Memorial Classic page.

Where the quilts travel:  Please visit our Events page to see when and where the quilts are on display.
