Please join me in welcoming today’s guest Judith as she shares with us the charity group, Bee Blessed, that her and a friend have created to help others in need in Belfast. They’d love to have you join them making blocks and spreading the word about their efforts.
For this week’s Learning Center post, I asked four organizations/groups to share information about their quilting charity: Bumble Beans BASICS, Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative, The Linus Connection and Quilts of Valor. I also asked Kristy from Hopeful Threads to share her story with us … I think you’ll be inspired.
Last year, Heather hosted a Mystery Quilt By Email to raise funds for her mom’s stem cell transplant. Now, Heather’s hosting another Mystery Quilt to help another family stricken by cancer and ever-increasing medical bills. I hope you’ll join the Mystery Quilt FUN and help too.
I read over on Erin Russek’s blog earlier this week, that’s she’s created a gorgeous dresden plate with appliqué pattern and all proceeds from sales are going to help a little girl in her community. I purchased extra copies of Erin’s pattern to give-away to you!
Can you help? – Make some 4 Patches 4 Hope this weekend and send them to Regina. Make light-dark 4 patch block(s) using 2 1/2″ squares. The goal is 4,000 blocks that are then being assembled into “comfort quilts” and donated.
