Online PR News – 23-January-2010 – – The Patchwork Heritage Collection by Blanket America has been pre-released with resounding success. The collection is due to be released in JC Penney stores and will become available for shipping on January 23, 2009. The much anticipated collection has been featured on The Today Show with Lester Holt and on Fast Company's website. The Patchwork Heritage Collection is available for pre-sale through the QVC network, on Amazon.com and through JC Penney's stores, catalogue and website.
The Patchwork Heritage Collection, created by Blanket America to provide one million blankets to the needy, is gaining support in droves. In fact, the charitable organization's innovative buy one, give one approach has been so successful that pre-ordered items will now be shipped on a first come, first serve basis. Let's hope supplies last!
The Patchwork Heritage Collection is a welcome addition to any patriotic home, no matter the political affiliation. The message of the quilt is one of unity, patriotic pride and national strength. 13 fabrics representing the 13 colonies are sewn together with the bonds of humanity in order to create a more perfect union.
Attractive hues of red, white and blue are offset by the neutral beige of the backing. The reverse of the quilt features our lady liberty of Elis Island with the now famous presidential inaugural speech printed in the forefront. A more symbolic and patriotic message could not be made.
The Patchwork Heritage Collection is comprised of quilts in throw size, queen and kind sizes. Designed to compliment the quilts are the decorative pillow shams and throw pillows. The shams feature the same patchwork pattern as the quilt. The decorative throw pillows are a creamy beige color and feature two American flags with the American Bald Eagle in flight. Highlighted in a scroll are the famous words, "We know that our Patchwork Heritage is a strength, not a weakness."
The collection is so well designed and the project so well implemented that big name supporters are joining hands with the cause in order to help.
