August 2012 Hopeful Threads Sewing

This month Kristy from Hopeful Threads is raising awareness about Children in the United States Foster Care System. I have been racking my brain over the last few days trying to figure out how I can contribute and I realized that in the past I have done some sewing for Foster Children. I have been sewing on and off with a wonderful flickr group called Quilting For Kids. I have helped make 2 quilts in the past and this will be my third time participating.

Sarah from So Sarah Sews organizes Quilting for Kids. Here’s how it works: when Sarah is ready to start a new quilt she puts up a thread in the Flickr group and announces it on her blog. In the announcement she states how many blocks she needs, tells us which block she needs, links to a tutorial, and then tells us the colors and due date. Everyone signs up with the number of blocks they will commit to make and we all get sewing. It is a wonderful group and some really amazing quilts have been created. I will be making 2 blocks for the next quilt and I hope you will join me. We are still in need of another 20 blocks to make the next quilt.

Thank you to Kristy, Sarah and all the other quilters and sewists out there who are doing such wonderful works with their creative skills.

    WoW! Those are beautiful quilts! I will have to checkout Sarah’s blog. Seems like a great way to get a quilt made with lots of help. On a side note I got your email and will get one back to you shortly. I had my grandson this weekend so that’s all I did! hehe.
