(Thanks to the global pandemic and national shutdown,) There's still time for you to jump in and make a quilt, too! Search your heart and your stash. I even published a TUTORIAL that my friend developed. It easily makes use of your stash of large chunks of scraps to create a super quick quilt.
My own Magic Star quilt, from start to finish, was made in TWO WEEKS!! The other quilt I made took QUITE a bit longer. Here are my completed quilts waiting for their trip to the post office:
I keep forgetting to ask DH to bring home boxes. :o((
Don't worry. They will be mailed off soon enough. :o))
Not SEW long ago, I posted about Mercyful Quilts. That post was already in the planning stages when I discovered... Serendipity! It was on Sarah's list of participating organizations for this year. Along with Mercyful, there are other charities who will be getting the bulk of the quilts made during this year's charity quilt drive:
- Quilts of Compassion
- Quilty Hugs for Happy Chemo
- Caregivers Quilt Initiative
- Mercyful Quilts
- Quilts for Cure
- Little Lambs Foundation
Each organization has their own list of requirements for the quilts they hope to receive. You will choose based on the quilt size and style that you prefer to make. Sarah also allows for donations to your own favorite LOCAL charities, if postage will be a problem for you.
Watch for the following updates:
5/17 - Progress Check-In Post
5/31 - Finished Quilt Link-up Post

QUILT for comfort!!
