  1. Every other Friday (payday!), when I go through Starbucks I leave an extra $10 – $20 to pay for the 1 or 2 cars behind me. It’s always so fun.

  2. I helped organize a Quilt Call Out with Ellen Medlock and Quilts of Compassion to have quilters make and donate quilts to be distributed to the people of Moore, Oklahoma after the huge tornado wiped out their town and homes. We ended up with well over 200 quilts. I also make baby quilts, blankets, gowns and hats for donation to Neonatal Units via Quilts of Compassion. Thanks for a chance to win.

  3. This year it’s quilts to comfort – one is going off today for the mom of a friend who is having chemo treatments for cancer and I have a couple of quilts of Valor reading to go on the longarm.

  4. I have done a couple of things so far this year. I volunteer to advise a college sorority to help provide a mentor to young, aspiring women leaders. I also work with my guild to make baby quilts for a local group and modesty shirts for the women at the cancer center.

  5. I just mailed a prayer shawl to a friend who is battling breast cancer, and I share fabric with some friends. Giving, even when it’s anonymous, is such fun!

  6. Giving is one of the greatest feelings in the world. I may not have much, but I give wherever and whenever i can. Just recently i was asked to provide face painting for free for a harvest festival. I couldnt say no, i had such a blast painting so many little faces.

  7. I belong to an on-line group that makes comfort quilts. This year I made a top that and helped assemble two other tops for charities. We also adopt a family at work, so if there is a need for quilted items there I hope to be able to contribute something.

  8. My weekly sit n sew group take one day a month and we make quilts for Project Linus, bags for the local food bank, and quilts for the NICU of our local hospital.

  9. I belong to a crafter group at church, we make prayer shawls for anyone who’s sick or feeling overwhelmed. One of the gals makes one for new brides. I drive school bus and one of the girls on my bus recently gave birth. I will be giving her a gift certificate to a local store so she can get items she needs for the new baby.

  10. I made two preemie quilts for the local hospitals NICU and I quilted and bound a comfort quilt that my friend pieced. It will be given to a child with cancer. I hope to be able to do even more charity or comfort quilts.

  11. Support the La Conner Quilt Museum in their restoration of their home in the Gaches Mansion by biweekly contributions from paycheck.

  12. I have made 3 quilts and given them to local charities to auction off and/or give as raffle prizes. Made me feel great to know that I could help in some way. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  13. I donated a doll cheerleader outfit in colors chosen by the winning bidder
    to a charity bazaar silent auction held yesterday.

  14. Every year our family picks an “angel” off the Christmas tree to provide a Christmas for. This is a local child in our county that won’t have Christmas if someone doesn’t help. We have a lot of fun doing it and I am sure we will do it again this year.

  15. Our Guild has been making Placemats for “Meals on Wheels” and Walker Bags for a local Retirement Home. I’ve donated several items to the cause. Next year I’m looking forward to joining a group who are making quilts to donate to “Quilts of Valor” for our Veterans.

  16. I enjoy making quilts to donate to charities. This year I donated a quilt, “Bittersweet” (part of the Quilters’ Club of America Mystery Quilt project) to the MD Anderson Ovarian Cancer Research Center & Quilt Project in Texas, USA. They host an online quilt auction twice a year to raise funds for ovarian cancer research. I lost 2 friends over the last year to ovarian cancer. Bidding is over now, but you can still see the quilts that were made and donated to this cause at https://www3.mdanderson.org/auction/quilt …my quilt is #94 on the auction list if you’d like to see it. I will definitely donate another quilt to their spring 2014 auction!

  17. I am working with my guild to help with our Children’s Make It, Take It Day. We bring in kids form 8-16 and help them to make Christmas presents by having kits prepared and teaching them to sew. It is a wonderful day. And our local 4-H group provides the kids with lunch.

  18. The first quilt that I ever made (this year!) was a Linus Project quilt. It gave me the confidence to sign up for one of your BOMs. I intend to try to do 2 small charity quilts per year as well as work on new skills and bigger projects.

  19. I want to make a quilt for my 2 sons in law. I have made quilts for everybody else in the family…now it is their turn!!!
    hugs,

  21. I have made a quilt top (queen sized) that I designed around a kit-purchased medallion – need to quilt it and donate it to Wounded Warriors. I love donating my quilting talents to our military, especially since I have family members who are retired from or on active duty with every branch of the military except the Coast Guard. The biggest all-at-one-time gift was quilts for my daughter and the guys she was deployed to Afghanistan with when they returned home – my bee group helped me with that project and we got to present the quilts to each military member at a lunch on base!

  22. I clip a lot of different store coupons. If I have coupons that I know I am not going to use, I give them to someone as I walk out of the store so they can use them.

  23. As a family we normally donate to various charities during the holiday season and throughout the year. My husband was recently severely injured while serving in Afghanistan, so we don’t have the funds to donate this year. It breaks my heart that we cannot donate, but we plan to resume donating at some point in the future. Until then, I donate my time volunteering with my daughter’s Girl Scout troop and various community organizations.

  25. A couple of my friends and I make comfort quilts for people in and around our community who are in distress, whether because of illness or other circumstances.

  26. We have a local volunteer fire department in our town and when there is a fire (luckily not too many of them!) our group makes quilts for the family!

  27. My favorite sewing is quilts for charity. I was making crib size but our guild said they want twin or larger to give to Mom and kids that are leaving the Women’s Shelter to help them start a new life. So I’ve changed to the bigger quilts. When I travel I take yarn and crochet hats that I also donate. I try to make one a day (which is very doable) and then I don’t feel I’m wasting my time just sitting around.

  28. I have sewn a lap quilt to give to our local Medilodge for someone who needs a gift for Christmas and I have a couple of baby blankets that I will be giving to the local homeless shelter before Christmas. I have also helped send 25 shoeboxes to Samaritan’s Purse/Shoebox ministry for this Christmas.

  29. Our guild is going to start making pillowcases for the local domestic violence shelter for the women and children that stay there so they have something of their own there.

  30. I make small tummy time pillows for a nonprofit organization where my youngest Daughter works. Have been doing this for several years and easily make at least 100 a year. Also make eye spy bags and donate to an intraurban school where my oldest Daughter works. They use these as a teaching aid. I will be continuing both projects yearly as long as there is a need.
    Thank you for the chance to enter!

  31. I have been making bags, all year, for Beads of Courage children. I am also making preemie quilts for one of the local hospitals – the parents truly appreciate a bit of homespun love for their babies.

    I so appreciate the chance to win your fabulous give-away, and thank you for all you do!

    I visit Homespun Hearth weekly, to see the new and inspiring projects – something to look forward to on Fridays!

    Due to family obligations I have written n my blog for over a year! You’ve given me inspiration to get back to blog posting!

    Thanks, again, for a chance to win, and Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!

    Cheers!

  32. This year I became a sustaining member of the La Conner Quilt Museum in Washington state to support the renovation, the beautiful period restoration of Gaches Mansion. This museum houses quarterly quilt exhibitions that are simply fabulous, and the museum now has a lovely home. They also have nationally renowned teachers come and teach. I am lucky to be in such a creative inspiring area for all things regarding quilts, whether period quilts, traditional, art, modern, ethnic or what have you.

  33. I plan to try and make some quilts for family and non family throughout the year. Just learning, but
    I’ve put together about 7 since October 1. I always try to help where I can when I can to people I know or strangers because each little bit makes a difference.

  34. I’m making baby quilts to donate to our local Ronald McDonald House. Years ago, my sister and her two oldest children stayed at a RMH while her tiny baby was in the ICU. I’m glad to have a way to show our appreciation.

  35. I give back by making Quilts of Valor for our Veterans. Every day I sew something toward the completion of another quilt. Last year I made a total of 100 quilts….83 were Quilts of Valor, the others were custom order or family bed quilts.

  36. Today, I made dough for 300 Thumb Print cookies to sell at our Church’s Christmas bazaar and I’m sewing a Teddy Bear from the shirt of someone who passed, as a memory for his wife.

  37. Today i gave my daughter a quilt to give to a needy family. She chose a top i had finished years ago. I quilted it and bound it and now someone will have something to snuggle with.
