100 {more} Quilts 4 Kids

Sew Cute TuesdayHave you heard the news?  Sew Cute Tuesdays has moved.

And what a great new location....

Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts is the new hostess.
And she is a girl who lives up to her blog name.

Blossom + Heart + Quilts = Giving
                                                 a "handmade with love" quilt to a child in need...

What does this mean for us?

This is great news for all kindhearted quilters!


While visiting Alyce's blog, I noticed her post announcing the Lala Salama (Sleep Peacefully) 100 Quilts drive. The aim for this project is to provide a special quilt for every child’s bed in the new Bethany Kids Children’s Center at AIC Kijabe Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya.  This building is scheduled to be complete in mid-2014 and will serve vulnerable children all over East Africa with medical and surgical conditions, especially Spina Bifida and birth defects.

Her post goes on to describe all the quilty specs including colour inspiration, quilt size, and all the other details.  I am so on board with this and very excited to be a part of this project - so much so that I headed to the stash and pulled these preliminary fabric choices.
