Three for NYC - Victoria here they come !


Have you read about the charity quilt initiative called BASICS?  I't's a project to give quilts to families in NYC who used to be homeless, and are now re-entering their own homes.  It is hosted by Victoria of Bumble Beans, and you can read about it here:

I'm sending these three quilts... as soon as I can box them up... the one above is from a swap of 30's blocks that happened last year with some online quilters.  This next one, which did not photograph very well, is part denim, from the giant denim stash I have from a donation by Cone Mills of High Point, North Carolina.  It's a great quilt for a pre-teen - very snuggly.

 The last one is kid-sized, a string quilt - also snuggly with the extra layer of foundation to stabilize the strings.
I hope these quilts help some families to be warm and to feel cared for...

If you have an extra quilt, send it to NYC...  Victoria will personally distribute it to one of these wonderful families who are working hard to emerge from a difficult time... it will be much loved, I think.

Happy Weekend to all,

Kate
