Charity Quilts

In my last post, I explained my foray into the world of quilting.  I was hooked! I loved it! It's all I every wanted to do! But after making several items for our home, I quickly realized that I had to find an outlet for my craft that didn't involve accumulating and hoarding.  And since I still had just a small machine, I decided to focus on baby quilts.  They're easier to quilt on a domestic machine, and smaller projects are faster finishes.  How I do like finishing things!

So baby quilts it was! And then I wanted to find an outlet to donate my creations.  I knew I wanted to donate somewhere that helped children and babies.

I landed on St. Francis Community Services when a friend connected me to a contact in our local office here in town.  And when I joined our local chapter of The Modern Quilt Guild, I started donating extra-small quilts to the NICU of local hospitals.

I still make charity quilts, and 10 percent of all sales go toward supplies for charity quilts.

Here are some pictures of the charity quilts I've made so far.

There's a story behind each one of these quilts, and perhaps at some point, I'll post more details about each one here on the blog. In the meantime, I'm going to keep on plugging away, making baby-size and crib-size quilts and giving them to babies and children in need.
