This quilt is going in the mail today to New York City, where it will be given to a family that used to be homeless, but now has regained a home... I hope some kid snuggles under it and feels safe and secure.
Victoria at Bumble Beans http://www.bumblebeansinc.com is organizing a Quilt Gathering for the organization called BASICS. BASICS helps those families get off the street to safe housing, and then helps them with the basic furnishings and 'stuff' they need. They 'need' bedding, and what better than a quilt made with love in every stitch.
The reason to donate a quilt? Cause we are the very-generous nation of quilters, and we love to give of our stashes and our skills for people in need.
And, Victoria has arranged for us to WIN STUFF along the way to the goal of 200 quilts -fabric, longarm quilting services, and a new sewing machine!
Here's the link to all the information: http://bumblebeansbasics.com/
IT FEELS SOOO GOOD TO SEND A QUILT TO THIS WONDERFUL GROUP.
