Charity Quilts

Sarah  is hosting a Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge and I am very excited to say I've 5 quilts to donate!

The first are baby quilts for  Jack's Basket - an organization that delivers baskets to families who are celebrating the birth of a new baby with Down syndrome.  As a mom of a now 23 year old with Down syndrome, this organization really touched my heart.

I'd won a large bundle of kid fabric a year or so ago and finally put it to good use making two baby quilts.

I still have plenty of fabric left and will gift it to a friend to make her own charity quilts.

My next 3 quilts - I'm a bit embarrassed to say - sat for far too long in an almost but not yet complete state.   They all needed bindings and I had to hunt through my stash to find fabric that would work.  Fresh from the dryer and all nicely crinkly, I am happy to say they are done!

These are large quilts and I'll be donating them to the Carolina Hurricane Project.  (My LQG Cary Quilting Company is a drop off point.)   I'm happy now that they are going to be going to their forever home and hope they will bring comfort.

I'll be joining the link-up here.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. All beautiful quilts Patty. They will help some people who really need it.

  2. Great looking quilts. I've finished one...wish I had planned better to make more.

  3. Lovely to have such good reasons to use the fabrics and finish the quilts. :-)

  4. Great quilts for great causes! Congratulations on the finish and the donations through the Hands2Help Challenge.

  5. These are all perfect quilts for their destinations! Some fine finishes, Patty! I’ll bet it felt good to cross them off your list and know they will bring such comfort. Win-win!

  6. These beauties will really brighten some very lucky recipients' days! I love them!
