Hi and welcome to my stop on the 100 Quilts for Kids Blog Hop. This is such a wonderful charity event and I am so grateful to be a part of it.
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.
Here was my challenge... who do I make a quilt for? This was harder that I thought it would be until I was inspired by a friend to make my charity quilt not just for one child but for a school of children.
The quilt I chose to make for our elementary school was from my Baby Gears pattern.
Gears make clocks work, just like the teachers and nurses in a school. Teachers and nurses spend a lot of time with our children throughout the day and become an integral part of a child's life. So, make a quilt for your local school and provide a piece of home for them to cuddle up to.
