Quilts For Kids

These are some of the quilts that have arrived at the Lincoln chapter of Quilts For Kids recently! These quilts were all made by Eileen,a volunteer in Grand Island, NE. Bright, cheery, and ready to comfort a sick child! Thanks Eileen, they are beautiful!

If you'd like to help the chapter out in any way, it sure would be greatly appreciated! And you'd be helping to put a smile on a child's face, one quilt at a time.
We are in need of 100% cotton children's bright cheery fabrics, to make up quilt kits to send to volunteers,quilt binding,etc. Or maybe you have some cute charm squares or fat quarters that you've received in a swap and havn't gotten around to using yet, one of our volunteers would love to make them into a cute quilt to send to a child to comfort them while they are hospitalized, or going through a crisis in their life that is traumatizing to them.
It's easy also to help out by just requesting a kit, we include everything to make a small quilt except the low loft cotton batting. You just assemble it, quilt it, and send it back to us. We then donate it to children's hospitals, local hospitals, and child advocacy centers, etc.
If you'd like to request a kit, or donate something to the chapter, please email me lincolnnequiltsforkids@gmail.com Thanks Ila
