100 Quilts For Christmas - Here's One!


Hi, all!


In case you haven't seen it anywhere else in blogland, there is a great charity event going on out there called 100 Quilts For Christmas.  Here is the low-down on how to participate:



1. Make a blanket
2. Take a picture
3. Donate the blanket to someone or an organization of your choice
4. Post a picture of the quilt on any of three link-up days, and of course there will be prizes, including a grand prize drawing on Wednesday, December 15!
5. Here are the link-up days and locations:
Monday November 29 -- Amy Lou Who's blog
Monday, December 6 -- Swim, Bike, Quilt's blog
Monday, December 13 -- Aunt Spicy's blog
6. Also posting pictures on Flickr 

And here's the first quilt I've made for this great charity push!

Some detail of the quilting -don't you just love organic lines?

And a picture of the back!

This fun Dr. Seuss quilt, made with fabrics donated by Cathy from Wondrous Woven Fabrics, has been given to a 2-year old little girl recently diagnosed with leukemia here in Nashville.  You can read more about the story in my blogpost here if you want.

Be sure to link up your children's charity quilts too!  The more the merrier, for sure!!  And check out all the neat quilts linked up today at Amy Lou Who's blog!

Later!
