100 Quilts Blog Hop

Just a heads up that this coming Monday, I will be stop number 1 on the 100 quilts for kids blog hop.  I am going to be telling you all about the Quilts for Siblings Together, we will be hearing from Delma from Siblings Together, we will have a great big Quilts for Siblings Together linky party (I would love you to write a new blogpost letting us know why you got involved with this amazing charity, what it meant to you and what you made and donated or are making to donate) and we will also be having quite a big giveaway.  And when I say "quite big" I don't mean "quite big" I mean "properly big so don't miss it".   


100 Quilts for Kids is an annual charity quilt drive co-hosted by Katie Blakesley of Swim, Bike, Quilt and the DC Modern Quilt Guild.  The idea is simple: Make a quilt or 2. Donate it to a child in need, locally if you can.  Enjoy a blog hop that runs from July 2-September 25, 2012, complete with inspiration and mini prizes.  Join in on a 100 Quilts for Kids Quilt Along (Kick-off post on July 15 at Swim, Bike, Quilt).  Have a chance to win great prizes from sponsors, including Moda, Fat Quarter Shop, Westwood Acres, Rowan , Free Spirit, and Ty Pennington Impressions, among others that will shortly be announced.  Spread the word to family and friends!  Smile, knowing you used your skills for good.

  1. That sounds great Lynne, love a good linky-party! I’m still stitchting the binding down of the quilt for ST, so this gives me a kick in the ... to get it finished and washed.
