I recently decided that I am going to give away all but my most favorite and special quilts. They are just sitting around in piles and I think there are a myriad of opportunities for donating them. My kids obviously aren't particularly interested! (remember the story of me finding a lot of quilts in my daughter's closet freeze-dried, or vacuum packed!!) vbg
I've made two for the Quilts of Valor program, but they were made especially for that goal.
I also sent one recently to a blogger who has connections with patients in her hospital. I'm going to send her more. In the past, I've sent some to friends to use in a charity they're involved in.
Someone recently sent me a link to her favorite charity, which sounds very interesting.
So I'm asking you for links and/or information about the charity you most prefer for donating quilts to. And what are your feelings about donating a quilt to charity?? My guess is that everyone will be up for it but might feel at a loss as to where to send them. My friend Claire could write a book about donating quilts as she is truly the queen of doing that.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this topic!
Oh and there's another giveaway:
How'd you like to win the book "Pieced Hexies Deux" by Mickey Depre??
Leave me your name and I'll draw a winner on Sunday! I've never opened the book and am happy to have it relocated to someone who will use it!
