Quilts for Siblings and a Competition

Quilts for Siblings Together

Siblings Together is a charity dedicated to bringing together siblings split apart by the UK care system.  In the holidays they organise camps for brothers and sisters to come together and maintain some sibling family contact. In support of the cause Lynne over at Lily's Quilts is seeking donations of quilts so that each child can take home a quilt from camp this summer.  

If you are interested to contributing to Quilts for Siblings either by making a quilt or blocks
be sure to visit Lilys Quilts here for more information.

I am supporting the cause too but in a slightly different way. 
I've added some bundles of lower-priced cottons to the Quiltmehappy Shop
and I'm running a competition to have your siblings quilt long arm quilted!

Interested ? Read on....

You can find a mystery pack of 4FQ's of suitable children's fabric for just £7.

The bundles are coordinated and you can choose
young boy, young girl, teen boy, teen girl (or you can be surprised).


You will also find some value-priced bundles of 
wide-width cotton suitable for quilt backs.

These 2m bundles of 150cm wide (60") cottons in a variety of
children's designs are just £10 per 2m bundle! 

So hopefully that will help to keep quilt making costs down a little. 

But if you don't fancy either of these options you can always use
Promo Code SIBLINGS to get 15% off your order total at checkout.
Code is good until the end of April

And the long arm competition?

I am also running a competition to longarm quilt one of the siblings quilts
