Sew Some Love Sunday - Positivity QAL

Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  Hands2Help just ended, but there's another opportunity to help with a quilt of your making.  There are prizes on offer, so YOU might want to quilt along for another good cause - Mercyful Quilts.  One of my H2H20 quilts supported the charity started by Bernie at Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics.

Near the end of April, my friend Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts shared a photo of her latest quilt and made a BIG announcement:

If you have been following my blog for very long, you know that I have a heart for giving.  This may be the perfect opportunity for YOU to give, too!

Edited to add on 6/13/21:

Please keep the following guidelines in mind as you make (or choose) a quilt to donate to Mercyful Quilts...

  • Suggested Colors - Gender Neutral colors (avoid/limit pink)
  • Quilting - Avoid dense quilting

Until next time...
