I was recently contacted by Tiffany of This Crafty Fox about the Children's Charity Quilt Project. I'm happy to help spread the word about this great program. From Tiffany's post:
Youth sunday school groups across the state of Delaware have teamed up to motivate the children to read their scriptures daily and combine this wonderful activity with a service project!
The challenge: Read in the scriptures for ten days straight
The reward: A quilt block for every 10 days of reading tracked and a celebration in October to show off the fruits of their hard work.
Each child will have the opportunity to earn up to 3 quilt blocks a month from Jan-Sept. At the end of this time all of the quilt blocks, collected by the entire Sunday School group at each church, will be made into beautiful quilts which will be displayed at the October celebration and then donated to various charities for children and adults to enjoy.
How can you help?:
Our group consists of 45 wonderful and motivated children. They are excited to read and earn their quilt blocks but we are rather limited right now with our supply of fabrics and any donations of cotton quilting fabric would be greatly appreciated by myself (the main quilter of this project for our group) and our Sunday school group.
If you are interested in donating to this great cause and helping me to reward our wonderful children for their efforts and bless some local charities, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll be pulling together a scrap box for the kids -- won't you join me?
And since no post is complete without a picture, here's a sneak peek at a quilt top I recently completed. This one will also be going to support a good cause. More on this soon ...
