MARGARET'S HOPE CHEST...I HELPED, CAN YOU?


While reading one of my favorite blogs yesterday I found myself inspired (and not in the usual way).   Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts has teamed up with Carin @ Margaret's Hope Chest to help donate quilts to children.  How wonderful is that?!?! 

Amanda Jean designed a super simple quilt block that anyone could make (seriously, if you can sew short straight lines, you CAN make this block...no matter your sewing skill level).  I knew right away that I wanted to help and was instantly rummaging through my stash to find fabric. I quickly had 18 blocks cut out.



I am hoping to get all of these sewn up and sent off by the end of the week. 

If you would like to help put a smile on a child's face, you may find out how you can here.  I would be happy to provide the fabric if you live close by :)

Thanks for mentioning this project! It definitely is a block that is easy, but really shows off the fabrics and colors!

I've seen this and thought about it but I am still not convinced. How close are you to St. Louis btw? Maybe if I get those pillowcases done that I am committed to!

Your blocks are awesome! I can't wait to play with all the blocks and create beautiful quilts for kids who need HOPE!
Thanks for sharing on your blog!
Blessings,
