Quilts 4 a Cause

Share the Quilt Love

Do you love to quilt as much as I do? Then your entire family, your friends and everyone you know must have a quilt, handmade with love by you.  Now what do you do? Quit quilting?

Certainly not. Share the Quilt Love!

Find a need - in your community or worldwide.

Sewing and quilting for a charity or cause is an extraordinary and rewarding experience!  Help in your community by contacting your local hospital, Salvation Army, senior residence, women's shelter and fire department.  Babies born to teen moms, kids who are in need of donations for Christmas, and victims of violence and tragedy are those who may be in need in your community.

To help spread the word, please consider adding the Quilts 4 a Cause button to your sidebar!

Project Quilt Lemonade was begun by Valerie of Between Quilts.  It is her dream to provide quilts for the children living in the Mi Casita Safe House of La Limonada, a community in Guatemala City.

Lala Salama - 100 Quilts Project was brought to my attention by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts.  The aim for this project is to provide a special quilt for every child's bed in the new Bethany Kids Children's Center at AIC Kijabe Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya.

Katie of  Swim Bike Quilt hosts the annual 100 Quilts for Kids charity quilt drive and has been organizing this event since 2010.  Charity sewing is important to her, and a portion of her sewing time and blog are devoted every year to encourage others to do the same.

Canadian Quilting CQA/ACC: Quilts for Kids Inc.

Quilts for Kids Inc., USA, donates quilts to hospitalized children fighting a life battle with an illness or to children suffering from the affects of abuse or natural disasters. And now you can do this in Canada:  help children fighting a life battle with an illness - in your own back yard.
By working with the charity Quilts For Kids, Inc. you can make a difference in Canada just like the quilters all over the U.S. are doing.  QFK wants to work with quilters who would like to head up chapters of the charity throughout Canada. WHY? Because Northcott – a Canadian fabric company – has partnered with QFK and they have fabric to donate to groups wishing to be a part of the charity they hold near and dear to their hearts. If you have the talent, a sewing machine and friends, a church group or quilt guild who can help make these colorful works of art – QFK is interested in chatting with you.
