Well, God must have a different plan for me because a friend of mine posted this link on Facebook a week ago, http://www.craft4change.blogspot.com/
Here is a description of the project and some background information:
"This time we are partnering with The Sacramento Assistance League, by helping with one of their many philanthropic endeavors, "The Birthing Project". This (birthing) project is part of a program provided by the Center for Community Health and Well Being, Inc., located in Sacramento, which helps at-risk and low income women.
The Center for Community Health and Well-Being, Inc.’s mission "is to improve the health and well-being of our Sacramento community and assure our families and children the best environment in which to grow and thrive." The Center was founded in 1988 by Kathryn Hall-Trujilllo, M.P.H. as The Birthing Project, an all volunteer, community service project to lower Infant Mortality in Sacramento. They help families with both pre-natal and post-natal care, parenting classes and referrals if needed to get them off to a healthy start.
We, at Craft 4 Change would like to help them out by creating those baby blankets. They can be sewn, knit, crochet, quilted, or no-sew fleece. The only requirement is, that they be approximately 36" x 36" in size."
It didn't take me more than a few minutes to check my fabric supply and confirm I had enough fabric for a baby quilt for me to decide "YES, I'll do it!"
I just started sewing last night, here are a few pictures of my work. I will also be posting a "tutorial like" post for how to make this quilt yourself. :)
Fabric cut and set out
Let's get pinning
