We're Having a Sew In!

We're having a Sew In to benefit Mountain Baby Blankets at our Quilt Shop on Sunday, May 31st so save the date! (I'm sure I'll remind everyone as the date approaches) We'll gather at the shop from 12:00 - 4:00 and make blankets to donate to the children of the Appalachian Mountains in Kentucky. Just for fun, we will offer a demo of the String Piecing method and provide the strings for everyone to sew into donations (or feel free to work on any quilt that you wish to donate).

Please bring a children's book ~ We are also asking for donations of children's books to go along with the quilts that we are donating.

This is an ongoing effort, so if you are unable to attend on May 31st, bring in your donations of small quilts (crib - twin), and children's books to our shop any time you are stopping in ~ or if you are not in our area, contact me about how to donate. If you plan to come, contact the shop, it's free, but we want to make sure that we make space for everyone.

The above pictures are of my 1 Hour Crib Quilt. It is great to use a focus fabric or cute panel for the center and makes up really quick for donation quilts like this. I'll be giving this as a free pattern to anyone who participates in our Sew In on May 31st or who donates anything to this project :)

Enjoy the day!
~ Dawn
