The First Small Quilt Purge

Because it might bring comfort and hope to someone needing a hug...

Because I feel blessed while others are given a difficult hand in life....

Because I am able to...





As the holidays approach, I always find myself going through my piles of quilts and distributing them to various organizations.  There is so much need this time of year.  I get so much enjoyment out of making them - I am happy that I can let so many of them go to find a new home.

These three will be going off to Bags of Love this next week.  The sole purpose of this organization is to provide necessities and comfort items to children in crisis due to neglect, abuse, poverty or homelessness. They try to include a quilt or blanket in every bag they distribute.

These quilts are larger in size so they will be appropriate for some older kids.  I will drop them off after hitting Target to pick up other items to donate.

If you have never donated one of your quilts, I encourage you to research organizations in your area (or those on-line) that would love your quilt(s).  

They really do mean so much to those that receive them!

  10. Very awesome to donate some I totally agree. I haven't done as much this year as normal, maybe next year will be better. It gives such a warm fuzzy feeling to do so.

  12. I love your philosophy about giving. We have such a huge extended family and then there is our church so I haven't had reason to go outside of that for giving yet. It's wonderful to share these beautiful things we make with people in need, whatever that need might be!

  14. I agree...it is wonderful to be able to give away our quilts to make someone happy. I gave a friend of mine a quilt for her and one for her first grandbaby, she could not believe it. I told her it makes ME happy and I can make more!
