I would like to draw your attention to QuiltAid 2011. This program runs in Europe, in Australia and in the USA, and is a worldwide project which supports a very special hospital in Ethiopia.
This is particulary close to my heart as I lived in Ethiopia for four years as a child.
If you can, please support this good cause with a block, or two, or twelve! It helps that the twelve designers came up with 12 very cute blocks and that the fabrics which are used, Ruby by Moda, are very cute too.
Watch this space, as soon as my kits start arriving, I'm sure I will not be able to resist starting these very cute blocks, which are a mix of piecing, applique and stitchery.
