Quilts For Comfort ~ KidsQuilts

"A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove...but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child." ~Forest E. Witcraft

Anyone who knows me very well, knows that I pretty much live by those words and when a child is in need I will do just about anything I can to help. When I stumbled across Alison's blog, My Little Stitching Corner, the other day and read about how she was starting an outreach ministry to make quilts for the siblings of critically ill children I knew I had to help. I have made quite a few quilts for Project Linus, which is a wonderful organization that provides quilts to children who are seriously ill, but as Alison points out in her blog, the siblings of these children are often overlooked and we need to remember that they are hurting too. To quote Alison, "What child-young or old-would not love a quilt to cuddle with when times are very hard or days are overwhelming?" How could I not join in and donate a few minutes of my time (and heaven knows that I have the fabric) and make a couple of blocks to help out?

Susan, The blocks look wonderful!! I made mine today also. My 14 year old daughter made an Anvil block also!

Thank you for your kind words and for sharing about KidsQuilts on your site.

I will watch the mail for the blocks.

Blessings to you,
