quilting for a cause...

every now and then a cause comes along that pulls at the heart strings.

this is one of those times.

alison of little island quilting wrote about her visit to a home where 90 mexican street children live and i couldn't help but want to be involved. it is impossible to help every cause that comes along but this was certainly one i could.

rather than repeating alison's post about what she is doing go here to read about it and here to read what you can do to help.


in short, all you need to do is make one 12 1/2" backed and quilted block and send to Alison. obviously you could make more...i certainly am going to try...but if we each make one imagine how many of those deprived children could have their very own bit of comfort. 

if you feel you can help, go to read more about it on alison's blog and either leave a comment with her or here with me to get the details of where to send your block/blocks/quilts to.

What size were your blocks for this one? I think this would be a great thing to do :-)
