This is Not Your Grandmother's Quilt- Part II
Wednesday, June 1, 2011 • Posted June 1, 2011

With temperatures in the 90’s, it’s hard to think about making a quilt, but there are those of us who do for more reasons than one. When disasters strike, accidents happen, or a child is put into Child Protective Services, a quilt can mean more than warmth. It can mean comfort and the feeling that someone cares. It is a reminder that good things are yet to come and there is hope for better tomorrows. I have seen firsthand the look of a child who needed something to hold on to, and how much a small quilt can do for the soul. We, as dedicated quilt makers, can serve those needs. You can help too! You can make a quilt, donate cotton fabric, or donate batting. We will make good use of it. Hinckley’s Country Store, located on the square in Mason, supports our cause. They have LOTS of wonderful fabric, etc. and they have agreed to accept any donation you wish to make.
