Children's Charity Quilt Project

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by to check out information about the "Children's Charity Quilt Project".

Youth sunday school groups across the state of Delaware have teamed up to motivate the children to read their scriptures daily and combine this wonderful activity with a service project!

The challenge: Read in the scriptures for ten days straight

The reward: A quilt block for every 10 days of reading tracked and a celebration in October to show off the fruits of their hard work.

Each child will have the opportunity to earn up to 3 quilt blocks a month from Jan-Sept. At the end of this time all of the quilt blocks, collected by the entire Sunday School group at each church, will be made into beautiful quilts which will be displayed at the October celebration and then donated to various charities for children and adults to enjoy.

How can you help?:
Our group consists of 45 wonderful and motivated children. They are excited to read and earn their quilt blocks but we are rather limited right now with our supply of fabrics and any donations of cotton quilting fabric would be greatly appreciated by myself (the main quilter of this project for our group) and our Sunday school group.

If you are interested in donating to this great cause and helping me to reward our wonderful children for their efforts and bless some local charities, please email me at:

Thank you for your time and consideration of this project! And a VERY warm and special thank you goes out to those wonderful bloggers who have been kind enough to share this information with their dedicated readers. I appreciate your support and assistance in this service project!

I'd like to help, but wouldn't be able to think about helping (that pile of projects to work on...) until after the New Year at the earliest. I can't do a ton, but my husband is very supportive of me using my stash. :)

That's so great that you posted about the new Primary thing they're doing this year. I have a feeling I'll be heading up a lot of this one in our Branch, especially since I don't know of anyone else that quilts... I really should post something on my blog once all gets going. Great idea!
