South Bronx Charity Quilts

My friend Victoria Findlay Wolfe (right) is looking for 700 finished quilts for a South Bronx project which will give quilts to formerly homeless families who are moving into transitional housing. She has 300 quilts already, and is planning to reach her goal by November! Read more  here: BumblebeansBasics. I'm going to make a quilt for this project. I'll show you when it's done.

Quilters are so very generous. I've donated 3 quilts to Basic Housing. I hope Victoria reaches her goal.

What a generous project. I've sent quilts for Japan, and the most recent for Joplin. So many needs........

Oh fantastic......who would not be thrilled with a quilt from Karen? I sent a few last year but will see what I can come up with when I get home. I too sent two quilts to Japan, but most of mine do go to QOV.
I'll try to get another done for Victoria's cause though.

Happy Sewing and good for you for helping by making a quilt and spreading the word.
