100 Quilts for Kids Annual Charity Drive

charity quilts

This year’s 100 Quilts for Kids annual charity drive is being run by Alyson this year, who blogs over at The Hasty Quilter. In checking it out the other day, it looks like there is still a ways to go! In 2015, the quilting community donated 119 quilts, yet this year, there are only about a dozen quilts linked-up so far. Knowing how generous the quilting community is, let’s try to exceed last year’s number! There is still time, as this year’s drive will run through the end of November.

I encourage you to pull out those tops you have lying around that you can’t decide what to do with, add a fleece-back (see my Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 tutorial here), and donate them to foster kids in your community through your local government’s Family Services department.

I have linked-up my more recent quilts, including:

Maypole
Quanket for foster kids

Hakuna Matata
Hakuna-Matata

Sweet Slumber
quanket, quilts for foster kids

Mon-star

  1. I make baby quilts for first time mothers. Does that count? Jean, your quilts are beautiful. Thanks for the tutorial.

    1. I would think that quilts for mom's of new babies would count. And, thanks for the compliment :)

  3. I would love to participate in this charity drive, but for some reason it will not let me link up on her website. I've tried & tried but it won't work. Perhaps I'm not the only one, which would explain why there haven't been more quilts linked up.

    1. That is odd that the link-up is not working. Certainly if there is an issue with this, it could explain why there aren't more quilts being linked. Perhaps you could drop her a message through her site at http://hastyquilter.net/about-me/
