Covering the World with Accuquilt

 If you like making quilts for charity, you need to know about the program Accuquilt is running!  There are monthly prizes of fabric and accuquilt points, and a big grand prize at the end.  Which means you can make even more quilts to give away!  Island Batik is one of the sponsors, so I volunteered to post about it this month to help spread the word.  You can see the details here.  It's very easy to enter, just donate a quilt and post on social media!  They also have a facebook page for the group where you can post your quilt.

I'll be donating this quilt to the Kid's Hope Center.  This is a center that helps with children who have been sexually abused.  I hope this quilt can help make a child feel comforted and safe.  This is a sample I made for the Island Batik Catalog from the Mermaid Cove collection.  It's very cheerful!  The pattern is Monkey Around.

I'd like to challenge you to make a quilt and enter it into the Covering the World in this pay it forward challenge - it really is rewarding to make donation quilts, and there are so many worthy causes.  Quilts are indeed a great comfort, and you can help cover the world with that comfort!
