100 Quilts for Kids

Here is my stop on the 100 Quilts for Kids Blog Hop.  Have you heard?  Since I am at the end of the hop, I sure hope you have.  Katie does such a fantastic job of organizing this charity event.

100 Quilts for Kids is an annual charity quilt drive co-hosted by Katie Blakesley of Swim, Bike, Quilt and the DC Modern Quilt Guild.

The idea is simple:  Make a quilt or 2.  Donate it to a child in need, locally if you can.


It is such a rewarding experience to make something for others in need.  Last year, I organized a charity effort for the Columbus Modern Quilt Guild.  Using fabric leftover from a Robert Kaufman Kona Challenge, we made 2 quilts for children affected by the tsunami/earthquake in Japan in March 2011.

Friends delivered the quilts to a small town in the disaster stricken area in Japan.  Little did we know, there was a Peace Quilt Project going on for babies born in this area to be wrapped in blankets of love.  Our quilts were hung on display in a gallery for the project before being donated to the children.  Here is a link to the newspaper article written about our guilds' quilts.


Be inspired by quilters' generosity at the 100 Quilts for Kids Flickr Group.  And get all the details here at Swim, Bike, Quilt.  Hope you can join in the fun!
