QOV-collage-exhibit-thumb

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.

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!
