A sewing friend of mine found this organization on Pinterest and shared it with me recently. I logged on and tadah…. (no idea how to spell a made up word?!)
within a matter of days – here came this baggy full of cute PREcut fabric (I love that word precut), the instructions, backing and a quilt label.
This will be my first quilt label and I am quite excited about using it. Is that silly? Somehow a label with my name on it makes me feel more official as a quilter. haha I haven’t been brave enough to go make myself official by choosing my own labels.
This organization provides the fabric and pattern. I paid $6 for them to mail me the kit. I have 4-6 weeks to piece, quilt and bind it and then I mail it back to them. If you are interested in quilting for charity, here is the website http://www.quiltsforkids.org. My mom’s new sewing machine has a super cute car stitch that I really want to use when I machine quilt it…hint, hint, Mom
This time when the husband asks what I am making this quilt for, I will have a real answer besides….”hmmm, I don’t know. I liked it?!”
I am super excited to be part of something bigger than myself as I am currently a phantom quilter. I really need to join a bee or quild or start one or something!
Are you part of a guild or a bee or do you donate sewing projects to charitable organizations? I would love to hear about them.
