I’m excited to participate in 100 Quilts for Kids this year – both with a donation quilt and as one of the prize sponsors. (So If I happen to win one of the random drawings, I’ll be glad to pass that onto someone else!)
“Busy Hands” – the quilt I will be donating to 100 Quilts for Kids this year.
100 Quilts for Kids is an annual charity quilt drive to encourage quilters to make a quilt, donate it to a child in need, and be entered for fabulous prizes for their efforts. In 2014, 100 Quilts for Kids will run from August 1st-September 30th.
Originally started by Katie Blakesley of Swim, Bike, Quilt, this fabulous charity event is now being coordinated by Heather Tompkins of Quilts in the Queue. I’m happy to support this worthy cause and encourage you to do the same.
The idea is to find a local charity to support. I plan on giving my quilt to Project Linus, and you can click here for tons of other ideas of where you can donate.
Heather is hosting a linky party on her site where you can share pictures of quilts you are making and donating. So be sure to join in the fun! After all, isn’t sewing with a purpose so rewarding?
