Quilts being collected for tornado victims

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Tornado victims from Laurel County are still receiving donations months after the March 2 tornado.

The project started six months ago when Heartstrings Quilt Project began seeking donations to assemble quilts.

Over 50 quilts are now ready to be handed out to help East Bernstadt prepare for cool weather.

Austin's Sewing Center in Fern Creek assisted with collecting donations.

The Owner of Austin's Sewing Center, Teresa Packer, said, "All we did was send out emails to our customers. Donations have actually come from all over the United States. Not just whole quilts, but people have donated fabrics, there have been a lot of people to come together to actually make quilts."

The quilts are being displayed throughout the next two weeks at Austin's sewing center.
