H2H Check In

Sarah from Confessions of a Fabric Addict hosts this fun charity challenge.

It’s hard to believe we are 5 weeks in to one of my favourite charity drives of the year. Sarah is back this year hosting the challenge.

Here in Canada I have several charities that I like to help, but postage can be very expensive. two of the larger charities I donate to allow us to just send finished quilt tops and they have amazing people who do the quilting and binding.

Victoria’s Quilts Canada provides quilts to people living with Cancer. None of us have lives that have not been touched by this horrible disease so supporting VQC is my way of sending out hugs.

This year to date I have finished these quilt tops which will be mailed along with an extra 12” block for these amazing volunteers to make a presentation bag/pillow slip:

Quilts for Survivors is the other charity I prefer to support. They provide quilts to survivors of the Residential School System. When I was in junior school I walked passed a residential school every day on my way to and from school. I often heard children crying and always wondered why I never saw kids playing in the school yard. It wasn’t until I was in my early twenties that friends started telling my why that school was so different from the schools I attended. Over the years I have become friends with several people who did survive the residential schools.

These 5 quilt tops are made with fabric from my stash, and blocks, scraps and yardage from a good friend, Denise. Over the past couple of years I have received 4 or 5 boxes of goodies from Denise and hope she knows how much I appreciate her donations to be able to continue supporting these two organizations. With these two organizations accepting quilt tops, I’m able to finish a few more each year to donate.

Thank you for stopping by to read my post. 😁 Carol

H2H Check in @ Confessions of a Fabric Addict

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! What a wonderful post. Thank you for sharing the details of these two worthy charities and how you are able to support their missions. I am especially drawn to the last one with all the pretty bright colors. Happy Friday to you. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Linda. Here in Canada the residential schools were in the news a lot last year. They have found over 500 unmarked graves of children who died and their families never were told. It’s a horrific part of our history. Glad you liked the quilts. 🤗
