Siblings Together. It is a charity in the UK that works to provide activities and gatherings for siblings separated by the care system for them to be together. This is something that strikes very close to home as my nephew (soon to be adopted by The Aunties) has been separated from his brother by the foster care system.
When asked what she wanted for her birthday my sister told me that she wanted me to donate something I had made to a charity. I was stuck for an idea of what to make and where to donate but last Friday, Maria from http://sewlovetosew.blogspot.ca/ randomly happened by my blog via a link party and commented on my finished quilt. When I clicked through to her blog, her post was about the Siblings Together quilt project. What luck!
The charity is in the UK and doing an entire quilt would be killer to ship and let's be honest, I have a lot on my plate and one more quilt might just push me over the edge. Fortunately Maria had put a call out for 9 Patch blocks in a style to suit an older teen boy. Perfect!
I made three last night and popped them in the mail this morning. Happy Birthday Amy!
