Siblings Together Linky at Lily's Quilts

Earlier this year, Lynne met one of the trustees of the charity Siblings Together, and learned about the summer holiday camps they run to reunite siblings who are in care and have been separated.  They thought it would be lovely if every child who attended one of the camps over the summer could take away a quilt of their very own.  This lovely idea blossomed and many, many beautiful quilts have been made - each with a label with a space for siblings to write messages for each other. 

Lynne has invited people who made or contributed towards quilts to link up and celebrate this fantastic group achievement.  I hadn't made a full-size quilt before but I really wanted to be involved - I grew up with three siblings and though we fought and scratched and bickered I would have hated to be separated from them.  I made two quilts:

I'm just happy but not surprised, that this project has been so successful and glad to have been able to join in.

In her post today Lynne is also publicising the launch of 100 Quilts for 100 Kids,

Swim, Bike, Quilt

 so do have a look - and she is offering a giveaway of lovely fabric.

  7. Those quilts are beautiful, I love your use of solids. I fought like cat and dog with my brother but I would have been lost without him - I hope the new owners get some comfort from them.
