I am super excited! I opened my e-mail, read my blog subscription from Make It and Love It (link will take you to Ashley’s post)…
Long story short, they just did a post on Quilts for Kids. It’s put on by Downy, and lots and lots of volunteers.
You go to the site, request a kit, and you are sent pre-cut pieces to make a quilt! Sew a bunch of straight lines, buy some batting and assemble, then pay to mail it back! Voila! A kid in the hospital will have a snuggly, handmade quilt from you! I didn’t know, but apparently most kids are in a situation where they can’t have something to comfort them from home such as a blankie or stuffed animal, but they can have a freshly washed, handmade with love quilt. =)
I requested two kits, they said allow 1-2 weeks for processing and shipping! *jumps up and down*
