A Different Kind of Giving
I fell in love with this idea from Debbie at Stitchin' Therapy - please visit for all the details and inspiration. A group of volunteers making children's toys for various groups - listed on her site. And when Deb broke her shoulder and then surgery - she sent a shout out for help in getting enough doll quilts for the cradles and doll beds.
We all have scraps, orphan blocks or starts of projects sitting. I dug first into my pre-cut scrap barrels. A 12"x 18" cradle quilt goes together so quickly.
I know we all have those left over triangles - perfect home for them in a little 14" x 18" doll bed quilt.
And she had the cutest button designed for you all to add to your blog and get the word out. I plan on digging into those orphan blocks for more little quilts to send on. Do you have some orphan blocks, HST's, odd charms, or bits of a quilt never finished?? Consider makeing one (or several) of these little blankets of love to make some child's Christmas a little brighter.
