Charity Sewing

Just wanted to share with you some charity sewing I'm involved with at the moment.  I'm involved in supporting two quilting charities at the moment: Project Linus; and Siblings Together.  

For Project Linus I make a quilt as and when I have time normally.  At the moment the one I'm working on at the moment is a Star pattern which is foundation paper pieced.  The pattern is by Kristy Lea of QuietPlay. The pattern was in Make Modern digital magazine Issue 15.  I've only done two blocks so far but keeping plodding along with it.

For Siblings Together it's a bit more organised as I'm part of a sewing bee.  So each month I am asked to sew up two blocks as per instructions and send them off to the monthly Mama who will stitch it all up.  This is what I've done so far, with another one in the works.

I love being part of the bee for the obvious reason, that the quilt goes to such a worthy cause.  But also for a bit of a selfish reason, it gets me sewing blocks I wouldn't otherwise make.  So it pushes me outside my comfort zone.

Do you quilt for charity? If so which one and why?
