I am not sure how many of you actually watched Diane Sawyer's Hidden America special on the Children of The Mountains in rural Eastern Kentucky last week. I didn't because we don't have TV (cable, anyway), but I am glad that some of you did. Rachel did watched and decided to help. I would like to join her and ask all who can to join as well.
Rachel contacted the CAP organization, that goes out into the community to care for many teen moms in Appalachian Kentucky. There is a great need for warm blankets there.
Specifically, they have requested:
* Receiving-size blankets
* Blankets for swaddling (flannel, for example)
* Crib size quilts and blankets
* Child/toddler size quilts and blankets
* Twin size quilts and blankets
Please, visit her blog and look for any additional information.
I will be posting some ideas and links for free simple and quick baby quilts. I have som much fabric that was handed down to me by others. For me this is a great way to use it up.
Here are some of the links for now:
