A couple of months ago, I highlighted Pat on one of my posts. Pat is a special quilter because she quilts for charity causes. Many of her quilts have been given to comfort children in need. Pat completed two Ladybug in Polka Dotville (pattern available for free on this blog, and kits are available from Fat Quarter Shop) quilts before Christmas, and had sent me the following pictures.
At the time of Pat’s email to me right before Christmas, one of the quilts had already gone to a three year old little girl. Her father also received a Quilts of Valor quilt due to injury in the war.
I am so touched to see quilters taking the initiative to bless others with their talents. I maintain that quilters are some of the sweetest people! Perhaps we can encourage the quilters we know in our life with a sweet note of encouragement this week, and let them know they are appreciated.
Curious mind wants to know:
1. if you plan to make a quilt (or two) this year for charity causes
2. if you know of other charity venues to which quilters can donate their quilts. Feel free to share about your experiences!
