100 Quilts for Kids

100 Quilts for Kids is an annual charity quilt drive co-hosted by Katie Blakesley of Swim, Bike, Quilt and the DC Modern Quilt Guild. Have you been following along?  Joined in the past?


The idea is simple: 
Make a quilt or 2. Donate it to a child in need, locally if you can.

Enjoy a blog hop that runs from July 2-September 25, 2012, complete with inspiration and mini prizes. 
If you need inspiration join in on a 100 Quilts for Kids Quilt Along!

A couple of months ago there were fires that devastated parts of Utah (where Heather lives).  They were just slammed with fires this year, several near our parents home.  Julie from Having Fun Quilting reached out to us with her idea to get a quilt to every family who lost their home in the fires.  Heather was super generous and donated this quilt, from our pattern Mod Tweet:



It's just nice to be reminded and given opportunities to share our talents with those in need.  We all know how much love and comfort a quilt can provide.  If you have the time and means I encourage you to join Katie in donating a quilt to a local charity!  Thanks so much to Katie for putting such a meaningful project together.  Below you can find a button, blog hop info and important links.  Thanks!!!
