When I first heard of this organization I e-mailed them and they sent me a kit for me to sew which I did and mailed it back to them. Later I asked for some kits for the guild and they mailed me more kits which the guild has been work on. These are really easy quilts with just an alternating 9 patch pattern.

If you don't have anything to do, and want to add a little cheer to someone else's life you might consider looking these people up and sewing a quilt for them. You furnish the sewing, the batting, quilting, and of course the cost of mailing the quilt back to them. You can purchase a twin quilt size batting and that will be more than enough for 2 of these quilts so your cost is not very large and that is the only cost to the volunteer other than the time they spend.
Here are the 3 quilts the guild made and I did the quilting and tried to make each unique!
This one is so definately a girl quilt I had to do the flowers.
This could be either a boy or girl so I went with leaves in the border.
But then in the alternate blocks I did the meandering hearts.
This one made me think of the beach and the little bubbles that they always show rising to the top from the fishies. lol
In the small border here I just did the ocean waves around.
Just simple meandering in the alternate blocks.
Nothing fancy, but made with lots of love and hope and prayers for the child who receives these quilts they will know the comfort of Jesus through their illness.
Now the wonderful guild which I am privileged to be a member of purchased the batting for the quilts they volunteered to make and also allowed a member who had requested a quilt for herself to use so all she had to do was sew the quilt top, bind, wash and mail it back.
I am blessed beyond measure to be able to help a few others along my way! I hope you all have a wonderful day and much happy sewing and quilting!
