A Quilt of Love

Quilting used to be a practical, yet creative, hobby that only our grandmothers and great-grandmothers did.  I can remember being told, "You're too young to quilt!" (Funny, I haven't heard that in a while!) My how times have changed!  People of all ages are learning how to make a quilt.  I'm so thankful for the next generation of quilters who are keeping our art alive and fresh!  I love seeing the young faces at the shows and the talent among these quilters is amazing! 

Recently I came across a new young blogger, Theresa at Confessions of a Craftaholic.  She has decided to put her talents to a good cause.   She is a young person who doesn't just want to talk about doing something, she is making it happen!  Her enthusiasm and desire to "do something" is contagious!  She wants to help comfort a child at the Children's Cancer Center in Houston, Texas with a quilt of love.  Please head on over to her blog and check out her plans!

    With a smile,

  4. What a great idea! I think I will pass on participating since it's been a while since I've made a quilt for my local hospital. Thanks for the inspiration.
