Her Bumble Beans Basics has provided handmade quilts to those in need for a few years now. Seeing the recipients smile, cry, and wrap themselves in quilter love is a gift in itself. The latest endeavor is providing baby and twin size quilts for The Child & Family Institute. The program fosters healthy and strong relationships between babies and their caregivers. I can see how a cozy quilt made with love might just aid in that special bond.
I also had a little fun paper piecing this weekend. This Friendship Teacup was one of the free patterns from the QuiltCon mix tape and was designed by the talented Penny from Sew Take a Hike. Penny is another great inspiration in the quilting world. The top little mini will be a quilt for AAQI and I think I'll make a mug rug from the bottom one.
We're making pillowcases for Nemours Children's Hospital at our next guild Sew Day. I'm all cut out and ready to stitch. Ooh la la, French seams here I come.
