hello everyone....
I just discovered this group. Thank you Elaine-mom-nana-chickiepoo for forming this space to share with others.
I have been involved with making quilts and hand tied fleece blankets for some time. I started with a project at the school I taught at. The young women and men in the "Kids Who Care" group enjoyed making the blankets. Our projects ranged from preemies to the home bound seniors at the local hospital. On an average we would make 15 blankets/quilts per school year. Since I have retired from teaching, I find I still love to make the quilts and love to give them away. I am pleased to say, the kids are still making quilts due to my student teacher. My latest blanket was to an elderly alzheimer gentleman. Gotta go, the machine is calling, mainly because its snowing outside and its cozy indoors.

Keep up the wonderful work from the heart.
blessings

Hi,
I coordinate all of our charitable giving at Connecting Threads. I'm so glad to see this group in Quilt With Us! I have also started a group specifically for Quilts of Valor since that is one of the charities that we are currently working with. You can find the group here- http://quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com/group/quiltsofvalor
I hope those of you who work with the organization will join the group!

I recieved this fom a friend on a quilting group on Yahoo

I live in Calaveras County in the Foothills of California. I belong
to a quilt guild in Valley Springs, CA. Our group has been involved
for a long time making Quilts of Valor for wounded soldiers and they
are shipped to the hospitals and people who deserve them. yesterday I
was part of the group making quilts and my job was to help sew
backings so that they can be quilted. One of the local families owns
a long arm quilting business and their daughter is a retired soldier
who does the quilting. She has been honored in Washington, DC

Yesterday, we were told that there are 1200 soldiers returning from
their 3rd tour of Afghanistan and there has been a request for 1200
guilts to be ready in June. Of course one group cannot make them all.
I urge those of you in the country to contact the closest QOV group
and see if you can make or donate a quilt. There are groups all over
the country and you should be able to find a guild or group online.

Whats really nice about Project Linus there seems to be at least one chapter in every state, you can send your quilts to the local chapter to help people in your neighborhood or the national chapter to help kids from Infant up to Young adult anywhere in the country!

I'm in NW Iowa and just retired. I have six children and 8 grandchildren with another bundle of joy coming in May. My friend and I are very interested in making charity quilts. We will be doing some for burn victims through a camp in our area with our quilting quild, but they don't need more than 15-20 each year. Their campers come back year after year and they only need them for new campers.

I'm very interested in the preemies as my sister was a preemie. She didn't survive and I still remember the quilt my grandmother made for her after she passed away for her funeral. It was soft pinks and ivory. I was only 9, but it really made an impression on me. I also had a son stillborn 36 yrs. ago. I wasn't even able to attend his funeral due to complications with the delivery. My mother did the same labor of love for him that her mother did for her.

We have neighbors whose little guy has been in and out of the hospital for the entire 11 months of his life. They treasure the quilt made for them by the auxiliary of the hospital.

OK - All this to say - My friend and I would be very interested in other outlets to send our quilts. I have a very cute pattern for booties that are made from fabric with velcro that can be made to match the quilt.

Thanks for letting me join the group. I love quilting for my family, but making one for those that have had a struggle means so much.
