Quilting For Good - The Linky Party! Week 2

Hi, all!

It's Tuesday again, and time to link up and show what you've been Quilting For Good this week!!

Here are the three quilts our quilt ministry, Piece*Love*Quilt, made and distributed this week...

The top for this pretty quilt was donated by Verda, who I met when a blog friend of mine brought her local quilting buddies on a FART (Fabric Acquisition Road Trip) to my neck of the woods.  Verda sent us a huge stack of quilt tops for our quilt ministry.  This is just the first one to be quilted.  You'll be seeing many more of them in the coming months!!  This quilt is going to a woman who is dealing with leukemia.

This quilt was pieced by a member our our quilt ministry and is going to a man who has just been diagnosed with colon cancer as a complication of Crohn's disease.

And this beautiful red quilt, pieced by Pam, is going to a woman going through treatment for breast cancer.


This week we'll be working with 1st through 5th graders, teaching them how to piece a simple quilt top for quilts that will be going to New Orleans in the fall.  I'll be showing you the quilts they create, hopefully next week!!


And now it's your turn!

Show us what you've been working on this week -

Finished quilts,
Donations you've sent to others!

It's all Quilting For Good!

  1. Hi Sarah,
    I just just posted a photo on your Mr Linky Party thingy ;-) There are several quilters here in Australia who organise the distribution of donated quilts to needy people. In recent years, many Aussies have lost their homes through fires and floods, and thousands of them have been grateful to receive quilts. I cannot make a complete quilt for various reasons, but I do my bit by making quilt tops, which I'm told are greatly appreciated by the ladies who are happy to finish them.
    I had a HUGE amount of fabric given to me by a lady who was clearing out her stash of many years, and I figured it came my way for a reason - so I could turn it into quilt tops for people who need them. So I'm doing my tops for Oz Comfort Quilts, Aussie Hero Quilts, and one is going to Phoenix Quilts as well.
