MLK Charity Quilting Day: Be of Service

From Patriotic Heartstrings Quilting Project

In honor of Charity Quilting Mondays, Martin Luther King, lovely quilt bloggers like Cheri of Jovaliquilts, and of all the good women (and many an occasional man) who quilt....join us in a Virtual Donation as Service Quilt-In for MLK Day!

I love sewing and I love quilting. But when I can sew and quilt for charitable reasons, my heart connects with the quilting angels and I just fly through the fabric. And now that I've finally found my way In the Sewing Room of Life , I'm finally ready to do some sewing. Ladies...find your UFOs your QUIPs, and your CRISPys and join us tomorrow for some fun.

So, join a wonderful list of women (and maybe a man or two ;) and quilt with home, in your quilting groups, in the middle of your work break...wherever...tomorrow, Monday, January 19th.
