Enter for a Chance to Win the Quilt with a Cause
Dedicated Foundation volunteers, design and craft this one-of-a-kind quilt every year. Vera Bradley enthusiasts delight in entering for a chance to win. We draw the winner's name in Fort Wayne, Indiana after our Vera Bradley Foundation Classic weekend in June.

We'll announce the next Quilt with a Cause in Spring 2020.

About the 2019 Quilter—Erica Friend

From a young age, Erica has been sewing. Beginning with Troll doll clothes made from felt, to constructing her first quilt in third grade, she has always had a few creative projects in the works. Born in Champaign, IL and moving to Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1990, she’s been deeply rooted in the midwest, including attending Purdue University in West Lafayette. Erica received a Bachelor of Science degree in interior design and since graduation has worked in real estate, home construction, and design. In 2015, she decided to pursue her sewing passion full time, focusing on quilting, pillows, and dance costumes, and thus ELF and Company was born—the “company” being her trusty furry sidekick, Bibi. Erica’s work has been featured on RJR’s What Shade are You blog, @52quilters on Instagram, and is currently in her second year partnering with the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer Quilt with a Cause.

While completing the 2018 Quilt With a Cause, Erica found out her best friend from college, Faith, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Erica was blessed to be able to spend time that spring and summer visiting Faith often and keeping her company during doctor appointments and chemo treatments! The Quilt with a Cause has taken on a new purpose for Erica, and she looks forward to creating many more in years to come! Every stitch sewn and every dollar raised is one step closer to finding a cure!
