Merrily we hop along, hop along, hop along…merrily we hop along to some amazing blogs!! So far you should have met Mary from Country Threads, Michelle from Michelle’s Romantic Tangle, Julie for JulieK Quilts, Judy at Patchwork Times and Mary at Quilt Hollow.
Today you’re getting a double dose with TWO places to hop to. This morning I told you about Moda’s Cutting Table. Now I’m telling about someone who has a cause that is near and dear to my heart…charity quilting and that blog is Confessions of a Fabric Addict. The anchor of the blog is Sarah…and what a generous, giving gal she is!
Sarah is always organizing other quilters, teaching new quilters and getting quilts finished and given for charity. I am always in awe of all that she is able to get done.
Each week Sarah always has several quilts that her hands have touched and she’s worked to get the quilts passed on to those needing a comfort.
Sarah started a new project and that’s helping her daughter’s family raise money to adopt a little boy from China. She’s been making quilts and raffling them off as part of her money raising efforts. She’s been a really success at that too. You can read about the story here.
I first got to know about Sarah’s blog when my friend Michelle told me about her well known linky party on Fridays, “Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?” It’s a fun linky party where bloggers link up their blogs showing progress that they made on projects over the last week. It’s a big party and lots of fun.
Earlier this year Sarah launched her Sweet 16 Quilt Along. It’s been fun to follow. She’s shown readers how to make a simple 16 patch block then over the next few weeks Sarah’s shown readers how to set the blocks in a variety of different quilts. I have to say, I love them all. They aren’t hard quilts and all unique…perfect for gift giving or for donation quilts. Read more about the Sweet 16 Quilt Along and see the fun quilts by following this link.
I love this Sweet 16 quilt. Sarah wrote a tutorial for here. I am thinking this might be the quilt I make for a summer wedding we have.
Sarah is extra busy right now organizing her annual Hands2Help Charity quilt drive. She encourages readers to sign up and make quilts for charities. Prizes are involved so you’ll want to check that out.
…she really is a busy, busy gal!! I can’t express how much I admire her.
Sarah is the one who inspired me to offer to machine quilt tops that blog readers sent to me and then pass the quilts on to charities. I’ve found that so rewarding and I can’t thank Sarah enough for being such an awesome role model to us all. We are so lucky to have her as our mentor!!
So hop on over to Sarah’s Confession of a Fabric Addict.
