Kind Stitches

My friend Karen, at Listen to the Birds Sing, is heading to Thailand to volunteer her time by running a clinic for children who have been used in sex trafficking.   She has set up a charitable quilting bee to make quilts for the local shelters and is asking for people to join in by donating blocks or fabric donations in support of her efforts.  She is so much more eloquent about her hopes, so please go to her blog to learn more.  Here is a quilt that she's just started to give an idea of her goals:

So, last night I made 6 blocks to somewhat match this quilt with the pink/white four patch theme.  I hope she likes them!



I've also tossed in a mini-stack of charm squares (one charm square would make 2 blocks as shown here with a bunch of white fabric) for her actual in-home quilting bee.  I hope the ladies can use them!
