This project is easy. We are calling this quilt pattern HOPE SQUARED. Make a quilt out of squares. Any size, any number, any color. Use up some scraps. Dig out your kid-themed fabrics and pair them with some bright solids. Please consider that all ages of children will be receiving these quilts-boys and girls. Base the size of your quilt on the size of the child you have in your mind as you create it. **If you are new to quilting and don’t know how to finish and bind a quilt or if you have limited time, you can construct the top of the quilt (the squares) and send that to them and they will gladly finish the rest for you.The deadline for this project is November 15. For those of you who live nearby, I will again collect the quilts and mail them by November 12. For more information on the project, click here. If you plan on sending your items through me, please let me know so I will know how many to expect.

Craft Hope's 5th project kicked off today and this time we are making quilts for homeless children in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area! If you're like me and haven't ever made a quilt (although I am making progress on the one for Alyssa), you can still participate. They are keeping it really simple and are even offering to quilt it for you if you just make the top. The details are below:
