Quilts for Kids - You can help!

Do you quilt?  Do you want to try?  Or do you just have fabric taking up precious real estate in your craft closet that you know you won't use?  Consider donating your time and effort and/or some fabric to Quilts for Kids.    It doesn't cost anything to get your quilt kit and your donation will impact children all over the world.

I have experienced firsthand the joy a quilt can bring to a family in the hospital.  One of my best friends from college recently had a baby who was born 3 weeks premature.  (He is home now and doing well!)  Her tiny son was given a handmade quilt that had been donated to the hospital during his week-long stay in the NICU.  It has been treasured by my friend and her family.

There are lots of organizations who do this, this is only one.  If you have the time and ability, do consider making a quilt for donation.  You can find all the details here.  (Just click on "Volunteer".)

Not a quilter?  You can still donate to the cause here.

Cool. I've made for Project Linus in the past and would love to make more for them. I just ordered a kit, too. I'm thinking the kit might be simple enough that kiddo can help. (She loves to help me sew.) My mom has lots of scrap flannel, so maybe we'll make up a couple extra to send.

I'll have to check into Project Linus. I am VERY new to quilting, but after doing one I can see how they could get quite addicting. And so wonderful to be able to give to those in need. Thanks for the tip!
