Quilts For Kids


Wow! I finally got one more thing out of my sewing room. I haven't had a lot of time this week, but I did manage to finish this little quilt. Are you all familiar with Quilts For Kids?
Here's their mission statement:
 Quilts for Kids, Inc. transforms discontinued, unwanted and other fabrics into quilts that comfort children fighting a life battle with a serious illness such as cancer, AIDS, as well as children of abuse. Our goal is to link design centers and other fabric sources nationwide to their communities, so that children in need in those regions may be served.

You can request a kit and everything will come all cut and  ready to sew. You add the batting and mail it back. It's a terrific program. I've done one or two quilts for them in the past and happen to see something about it again recently and thought I'd do another one. I loved the sweet dog fabric I got to work with.

  12. Wonderful, Lori! I do so love it when talented quilters give back to others as much as you do. Quilts for Kids, Project Linus, and AZ Quilts for Kids do so much good collecting quilts for children. Even our hospital here in Salem needs about 300 baby quilts a month to meet their needs! So, readers, give locally or ship them out to wonderful groups..it's all good!

  14. This is such a cute quilt, Lori. Whoever picked the fabric did a nice job - as you did making it up. I have a soft spot in my heart for charities like this.

  23. Oh, that is a great idea! There was another group doing this, I think it was a Company, I think it was a laundry detergent or fabric softener , they'd send the stuff and you do it and send it back...
    Can never have enough quilts for children. So nice of you to take the time to make this very pretty one. Love your quilting.
