100 Quilts for Kids

 Have you heard about 100 Quilts for Kids?

 It's a great way to donate to Margaret's Hope Chest and possibly win a prize at the same time.  Kate just announced the prizes up for grabs yesterday--wow! You can read through the details of how to enter the giveaways HERE--but basically the process is easy--make a child-themed quilt--take a picture of it--donate the quilt to an organization that gives quilts to kids (like Margaret's Hope Chest :))--add your picture to one of the link-up's--and voila! You are entered into the drawing for some fabulous prizes.
I will tell you now that we NEED quilts.  We just returned from a prison giveaway on Saturday--we gave away 45 quilts to some precious children who have a parent in prison.  
We now only have 17 kid-themed quilts left in our stash--and we would very much like to be able to attend one more prison camp in early November--but we need about 60 quilts in order to make the commitment to go.  
Every quilt we receive through the 100 Quilts for Kids program will get us one step closer to this camp.  The timing couldn't have been better for us. 
I just finished this quilt today and it will be my entry--I had finished this top in the spring but put it away because I had run out of batting. I love how it turned out and can't wait to share it with a little girl.
 Can you join me in supporting 100 Quilts for Kids?

Thanks, Carin. It is a pretty quilt, I agree!
