Victoria and Bumble Beans BASICS distributed quilts to people transitioning out of homelessness. It took place this morning in New York City! She didn't reach the goal of 400 quilts by Thanksgiving, but got about 200 which is wonderful... and so she is still asking for completed quilts.
Here are a couple pictures from today's distribution. Don't the people look so happy?? You could make someone happy, too, by donating a completed quilt to someone in celebration of their new home. Just check out the Bumble Beans website, here. You'll get the info you need AND will see more of the distribution pictures.
all these beauties were donated!
proof that quilts = love!
this picture is just the BEST! Too cute.
A couple of quilts were distributed to me recently! Well.. I am borrowing them ever so briefly. A friend of mine let me take them so I can show them at my guild and perhaps get some info and/or advice on getting the first one completed. Her mother died recently, and my friend has been finding treasures as she goes through the house. I fell in love with these!
Which of you clever readers can tell me your estimate of the age of these quilts, judging by the fabric? The one with green I guessed is from the 30s and the other from the 40s, but I don't feel confident in this arena. Are you an expert? Tell me what you think!
