Earlier in the month I wrote about the generosity of quilters. We all know what comfort a quilt can bring and that is why so many of us quilters make for others. There are many different charities you can support that offer quilts to people, from newborns to the end of life and everything in between. You can offer: a full quilt; donate fabric, wadding or backing; sew on the binding; or fundraise – it can be as little or as much as you like but anything and everything does make a big difference.
Here are some organisations that are always looking for volunteers:
aswell as NICUs needing incubator covers

This week I delivered quilts to three children who tragically lost their dad recently. I made two and another lady offered to make the third, having never even met the family! I made an eye spy quilt for the youngest boy and the second it was out of the bag the conversations about what he could see started. Here’s hoping these quilts, and many more like them, can bring a little comfort and cheer to people who need it.
