We are excited to announce that we have donated a quilt to be put in A Swine Evening silent auction benefiting A Childs Place organization. If you're not familiar with what good work A Childs Place does, then hop on over to their website! They are fully funded by donations and fund raising, providing school lunches, uniforms and organizing volunteers to mentor Mecklenburg County homeless children.
Did I mention there were over 4,900 homeless kids in Mecklenburg County last year alone? Truly hard to believe so many kids and parents have no permanent address. That's why we have also decided this will be our local organization that our Charity quilts will be donated to, I can think of no better place than helping out these local homeless kids!
Here is the quilt we donated for the silent auction.
The fabric is Kaleidoscope by Northcott Studio, featuring a Dresden Plate pattern.
We used a feather pattern in a white thread color so the quilting flows nicely between the white background and the dresden plates.
I was told this will be placed with a set of rocking chairs that were donated as well as a celebrity decorated pig! I would love to see all the donations and can't wait to hear how much money they are able to raise! What an awesome job!
