Today while jumping around blogland, I happened up on Quilts by Kathie's Blog and learned of something new that is being sponsored by the Downey Fabric Softener product. Kathie shared a photo of all the stuff that was MAILED TO HER to make and complete a quilt to send back to Quilts for Kids.org - an entire KIT! f abric, pattern, even a quilt label. Take a look! ;)
Have you heard about Downy's Touch of Comfort Quilt Project? It is a team effort with the nonprofit organization of www.quiltsforkids.org
I spent some time on their website finding out more about it and really enjoyed reading thru the kids' Thank You letters. and of course who doesn't enjoy clicking thru a Gallery Page to see lots of photos of quilts that have been made?
and although right now I have too many irons in the fire to begin one... I was happy to learn on the "About us page" that the founder mentioned that she began this project some 9 years ago!
So this isn't some project that is for a limited time... in fact, take a look at their "Fact Sheet" to see how many fabric manufactures are a part of this and also how many hospitals receive quilts!
www.Quilts For Kids.org will for sure be on my list for 2010!
We are pleased to announce a new alliance with P&G’s Downy brand and CMN hospitals. The program is called the Downy Touch of Comfort. Quilts for Kids comforts children in need so this is a perfect partnership.
