I love that Pat has labeled AUGUST: FINISH IT UP!
This has been my goal this year to finish all the tops that have not yet become quilts.
Have a few laying around?
I know a good place who can use them!
I don't know about you, But, I can already feel the air changing here.
Summer is flying by, and my daughter is looking at Halloween costumes...
So fall and the cold are not far behind.
I think about all the families we've helped by donating quilts to BASICS.
How much they are appreciated, needed and loved.
Not familiar with my BASICS PROJECT?
I started the BASICS QUILT DRIVE
after I asked you all to make my house blocks.
I thought I'd be making a few quilts for BASICS,
then you all sent me 550 house blocks, and I made 60 quilts from them,
and they were auctioned off to raise over $30,000 for BASICSinc.org
WHAT IS BASICSinc.org?
Basicsinc.org is an organization in the South Bronx, NY,
who helps homeless families get
back into transitional housing and helps get them back on life's track.

PLEASE TAKE THIS LOGO! ADD IT TO YOUR PAGE AND SPREAD THE WORD!
At this point, including the 60 quilts I have made,
we've given them about 350 quilts!!!!
we need more!
When I asked my friend Mr. Russi, who runs BASICS,
if he needed a few quilts,
"DO YOU HAVE 700?"
I am asking you.
Do YOU have a quilt you can finish before Thanksgiving?
I need your help for 350 more quilts!
It's time to plan another quilt distribution event for fall!
