I'm working on a twist to my Sliced Coins quilt-along this year to donate, using some Urban Chiks' Hullabaloo charms that I've had sitting on my shelf for a while. It's so relaxing to do some simple patchwork for once! I was pleasantly surprised that I could manage to put together a cute little quilt top using just a charm pack and a little over a yard of sashing.
Last year, I made what is quite possibly my favorite charity quilt to date, for a young woman's 18th birthday, my Drunk Love quilt, featuring some of my favorite pink and green fabrics.
This was a hard quilt to say goodbye to, because I loved working on it so much, but it put a smile on my face to know that I was making something for someone who truly needed it. I donated this quilt through Margaret's Hope Chest's Wrapped in Love program, which benefits children with an incarcerated parent. If you are interested in making a quilt for this program, simply email Carin for more information. This quilt is still one of my favorite quilts that I've ever made, and maybe one day I'll make another like it.
