Irene Padilla comes from a family of quilt makers, and she began creating her own when she was 5. Later, she started sharing her quilted blankets with family and friends, and then she realized that while everyone needs blankets, not everyone has one.

It’s been said that good friends are like quilts in that they age with you, yet never lose their warmth. Padilla, one of The New Mexican’s 2013 Ten Who Made a Difference, has taken that to heart and has created hundreds, probably thousands, of her quilted blankets over the past 20 years for people she considers friends but will never know.
