Quilters Christmas Party part 5

Let me share some inspiration from Bente's care quilt pile with you!

If you think about whether or not you should contribute to care quilts in your country, it it time to get your thinking cap off, find some fabrics and get to work !! :-)

There are so many children (or other causes of your choice) who will benefit from our effort, and in the big picture we all can afford to use some time and some materials to give a long distance unselfish hug to someone in need - a true act of Paying It Forward,
since we are so lucky to have this lovely rewarding lifestyle called quilting.

Myself I started making care quilts when my DD1 was seriously ill many years ago.
It felt good to make someone happy during that stressful hurtful time, and it still does, through all kinds of days.
Try it yourself and you will never regret it !! :-)

A wonderful venture indeed...when some good work can help needy children then there is nothing like it....I am sure it will help and benefit the needy children...and did I say that the quilts are beautiful,colorful and vibrant?
