100 Quilts for Kids


Katie of Swim,Bike,Quilt and hostess of the 100 Quilts for Kids project, has opened up the linky early.  So if you have completed your quilt(s) already, link them up.  And there is still time for August and September to complete those projects or add to the love.

Need some inspiration to get started?  Visit Sue Daurio - she has whipped up a bunch of great string quilts from a single bucket of scraps and strings.  Now you know you got those somewhere in your room!  I think I have time for a couple of those too.




I did get a quilt finished using some parts of The Lorax panel and left overs from another Lorax quilt mixed with orphan JR strips.  And this cute little quilt needed a home when I saw on a friend's post that their guild was in need of donation charity quilts.  So I asked Sheila of Sew,Cook,&Travel if I could assist and off this went and gifted on to the Wilkes County Quilters.  If you need some where to send your quilt, visit and contact Sheila.

     

And I wanted to add to the box I sent, so pulled this SunBonnet Sue quilt from our shop.  I am sure she will make some little girl very happy.

And if this hasn't motivated you, there are prizes for linking up donated quilts!

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

**also, if there comes a need from all the flooded areas recently, please bloggers, give a shout out and/or contact Katie to add to the list of donation areas**
