calling all quilters who love kids!


I have to tell you about a wonderful program that is going on right now sponsored by Downy Fabric Softener. Its called Downy Touch Of Comfort.
Downy wants to help collect and donate 10,000 quilts to sick kids in the hospital. They have a pattern to download,in PDF form, if you want to make one from your stash or you can send off for a FREE kit. I sent off for one on a Sunday and by Tuesday it was at my door step. Everything you need is included in the kit except for batting. Kit includes pattern, materials for the top, backing and blinding! They will pay to send the kit to you, you pay to send the finished quilts to them. I think its a very fair deal!
Go to the web site, click on the Volunteer button and sign up for the kit. I did have a problem with sending the info they requested and was advised by a fellow quilter participant to email directly and request a kit. Go to the Contact button and email your info. This is a legit program and I encourage all my fellow Quilters out there to join the fun! There are some guide lines in the making of the quilt, but its all common sense stuff. If you don't have time, the website will take donations. Remember, for every bottle of Downy sold, P&G will donate to the Quilts for Kids organization to help pay for the kits and postage to send them out to us Quilters who want to help. How cute is this kit I received!! The material is all precut and ready to sew together. This quilt top will be a simple 4 patch and solid block style with 2 borders. You also get a Label to sign your name and title of the Quilt. I'm thinking 'Bunnys among the Patches' what do yall think? of course I will post pics when I am done! I have this weekend off and will be working on it.
Keep On Stitch'n On!
