Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge

If you're looking for the Blog Hop Giveaway, go here.

As I was browsing around through my blogroll last night, I came across Sarah's blog, Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  If you don't know Sarah or haven't visited her blog, DO IT.  She's an amazing lady with some great talent.  Best of all, she's so willing to share her talent by helping others.  She quilts for her church's quilt ministry, and she creates some amazing quilts to give away to others in need.

Right now, she's hosting an amazing Charity Quilt Challenge. 

It's a challenge to engage participants to create charity quilts for two amazingly worthy charities:
The NOLA project; which is a program to distribute quilts to grade-school children living in St. Bernard Parish in New Orleans.  This area was hit very hard from Hurricane Katrina, and there is a lot of need there. 
And Happy Chemo; which is a program to distribute quilts to those going through Chemotherapy.  This is an effort from Emily at Em's Scrapbag; she's looking to distribute 1500 quilts and is now up to almost 400.
Both are wonderful, worthy charities for quilters to get involved with. 
The deadline to have the quilts finished and sent is May 27th.  That's two months from now.  I know that most quilters can easily start and finish at least one quilt in two months' time.  Most can make a full quilt in less than a weeks' time.
I committed to make at least one quilt, and I'm going to try to make two.  It's a great cause and it feels so good to help out with a good cause.
Click on the button above to go to Sarah's blog and read her post with all the details about this quilt challenge.
(There's even giveaways!  She has the details on her blog)
Sarah is taking names for signups now.
Can YOU help out?
