Have you wondered about the “Quilts for Kids” connection to the AMB Mystery Quilt? Quilts for Kids is a wonderful organization founded specifically to wrap kids in need in the love of a special quilt. Kids who receive quilts are hospitalized and facing life-changing illnesses, or have suffered from abuse. QFK founder Linda Arye knew she wanted to use her quiltmaking talent to help kids – even total strangers – and knew she could find other quilters who felt the same way. 16 years later, over 200,000 children have received quilts worldwide! To support this wonderful cause, we designed a version of the Mystery Quilt that will meet QFK size guidelines. We will post the finishing instructions for this version, which you can make in any colors you choose, at the end of the challenge next February. We hope some of our quilters will choose to donate their quilts! Even if you’d like to hold onto your Mystery Block quilt or donate it to another cause, please consider the Quilts for Kids mission for your next charitable quilting project!
Clothworks, parent company of American Made Brand, was just recently featured in the Quilts for Kids Fall Newsletter, as we just shipped a truckload of fabric donations! Check out this nice feature post below:
