Last week I was finally a 2nd prize winner on one of Bearpaw's lovely giveaways.. They are always full of lovely goodies so I was very pleased to win this lovely book! It tells you lots of stories of individuals who have organised quilting for a diverse amount of goals, all for charity, from quilting for disaster victims, to war heros, to children with illness etc etc.. It tells the stories and also gives some easy patterns you may use to make some of your own and help the effort of your choice.
I have always known quilters are the most generous,supportive, fantastic bunch of people but it is heartwarming to see all the projects and the good that is being done. This being an American book, most are from the USA, but there are plenty of organisations that operate world wide (Project Linus e.g.) and in the UK there are a lot of UK based ones too doing the same thing.
Thank you for this beautiful and inspirational book Jo !!
It's here, it's HERE!! Wow... I won this back in March in a contest by Ann of Prairie Primrose Stitches and the Electric Quilt Company (see post here)and it finally arrived! Just look on the back of the box of all the lovely things you will be able to do!
I can't wait to start learning how to use it!! I immediately loaded it, but, being hopeless with technology, I will need to take the manual, and learn the hard way, step by step...(not like my kids who go.. tapety tapety tap and the most wonderful things appear on the computer as by magic... - showing my age here - lol!)....
Thank you Ann, for hosting this event and having me win! and thank you Electric Quilt Company for putting up this wonderful prize!
