KidsQuilts | Quilts for Comfort

A recent post by Jacquie led me to the KidsQuilts site. Alison organized quilt block collections which she then makes into quilts for the brothers and sisters of children with serious or critical illnesses. What a great cause! Alison gives a short description of the child who will be receiving the quilt and the block pattern to use. It is only a 1-2 block commitment per quilter. I figured I could handle that, knowing it will be such a special gift for a child.

Here are the blocks I made for Aryn's quilt. Such a cute idea for a little boy that loves science and bugs.



Please take a look at the site if this is something you'd be interested in getting involved with.

  1. Thanks for link to the Kids Quilt site. I am planning on participating as I can. Not being able to get out to a guild consistently has made charity quilts a bit more difficult for me. I think making a few blocks here and there is a great idea. And such a worthy cause.

  2. As always your blocks look perfect! I read about the project on Jaquies blog as well! Such a great idea. Hopefully I'll get organozed enough to sew some blogs for a later project!

  5. I will definitely check out the link. And your blocks are great! I've been meaning to do a bug jar quilt ~ but now my kids are getting too old. Guess I'll just have to donate them!
