100 Quilts for Kids: Countdown is on!

Just a few hours until the link up for this year's 100 Quilts for Kids closes. If you don't finish in time, don't worry. The point is to use your gift to lift the spirits of a child and family in need (though the prizes are pretty awesome!), and you can still post your finish on Instagram at #100Quilts4Kids to share your amazing accomplishment.

I finally added my quilts to the link up and am happy to say we broke the 100 mark (108 as of right now to be exact. Here is one of my favorites: A quilt top that sat in my closet for literally years is now going to see the light of day as a finished charity quilt!

Scrappy Medallion

I'll draw prizes tomorrow, though give me a couple days to get all the emails out, please! Thanks again to everyone who made this year's event a success!

100 Quilts for Kids Finished Quilts!

One and a half days left and we are so close! 89 as of right now, and if I would just get around to linking my own up, we'd be closer. Same with you? Well, get to it! 

I'm here today to show some more of the wonderful finished quilts being donated as part of this year's 100 Quilts for Kids event, but also want to acknowledge how much I appreciate all the quilters who have participated. I understand the time and love that go into each one of these and seeing them all together in one place is truly inspiring!

Orphan Block Quilt Top Challenge: Thursday and Friday

Here are my finishes from yesterday and today made by combining some orphan blocks donated by the DC Modern Quilt Guild.

Once finished, I'll donate them as part of 100 Quilts for Kids (don't forget to link up by the 30th to be entered for prizes!). If you think you'd like to take on an orphan block challenge similar to mine, I have some ideas on my Charity Quilt Inspiration Pinterest page.

Do you have some orphan blocks you could whip up into a quilt? Here are some places that would love to take your quilts and give them to children in need.
