Margaret’s Hope Chest

Charity Quilt Blocks!

This weekend me and my fellow Sassy Quilter’s (from my quilt guild) made blocks to donate to Margaret’s Hope Chest.  Margaret’s Hope Chest is a non-profit organization that was born out of tragedy, the senseless death of 80 year old Margaret Herrema. Her granddaughter started it as a blend of two passions in her life – quilting and helping spread God’s hope in a broken world. They use quilts to reach out and help others. There are several way you can help here if you are interested. Just recently they were asking for donated log cabin quilt blocks which they will make into quilts. My guild has lots of beginners, so this seemed like a great project that wasn’t too overwhelming.

Crazy Mom Quilts  made a scrappy log cabin tutorial to use for the donated blocks here. Fun and easy!

We made 21 in all! I got to use up some of my Fandango scraps and many of the girls got to learn how to make a new block! These are going towards “A Mothers Hope”, a program for mothers with post-partum depression.

If you think you would like to help,follow their blog here. We are looking forward to helping again. And a big thanks to a wonderful follower, Lea, for letting me know about this great opportunity:)

  3. such a good charity to support, I did make a couple of blocks and posted them so hope they will be in a quilt soon, would do more but postage from the UK is too pricey. My daughter is about to start a new nursing position at a hospice here in Leeds so I am gong to be donating stitchy pieces to help with their overheads and research etc

  4. Great endeavor!

  5. My favorite charity and charity within a charity! I bet that was a fun get together!

  6. Those blocks are so pretty! Well done. 🙂 Love the fabrics too. It was very kind of Crazy Mom Quilts to make a tutorial for these blocks.

  7. Love the colours and prints in these blocks Paula, going to be a very lucky recipient somewhere in the world 🙂 Such a wonderful project.

  8. Where can I buy one of your quilts?
