It's time...

Time to donate this quilt to my charity of choice in honor of 100 Quilts for Kids!!  The 100 Quilts for Kids is all organized by Kate over at Swim,Bike,Quilt!  Such a fantastic idea to help kids that are struggling in some way,shape or form.  It fills my heart to know this quilt will be going to someone VERY special.

The pattern came from the book Material Obsession.  I hand embroidered all the white center blocks.  They are penguin feet,polar bear feet and snowflakes in variegated thread.  It is a previously made quilt and I believe it was my 3rd or 4th quilt. 

 I chose a twin size quilt mostly because I really wanted to be a part of the 100 Quilts for Kids and I am really busy with a couple other quilts as of now that I didn't have some time to make one specifically for this organization.  I kept thinking it over in my head and returning back to this penguin and polar bear quilt.  Every child likes animals right?!  What better theme then I feel!

I attend a local bible study and last week they mentioned donating items to Agape Pregnancy Center.  My ears were tingling and an a Ha moment occurred.  All I could find on the center was this little bit here.  I am also sending them some laundry baskets.  These are not for the new moms to place their laundry in either.  Many of these moms do not have a crib for their babies as they are homeless.  They use the baskets for a crib for the babies.  It is so sad and I had to HELPHad to.  

If you would like to donate a quilt head over to Kate's blog and join up!!!  Your heart won't regret it:)
