Bama Bound Quilts...

I literally just ran across the blog Bama Bound Quilts while reading one of my favorite blogs, Diary of a Quilter.

A lady by the name of Michelle Kizziah is organizing quilt donations for displaced children of Alabama. I am so thankful she has stepped up with a great idea to help. Here is what you can do taken directly from their blog:

Please send finished handmade, baby-size (crib- 50"x53") and child-size (toddler- 35"x45"; Child- 40"x60") quilts. They need to be washable, pin-free, and from a smoke-free environment (due to allegries). Please launder in Dreft or other children's detergent to remove any residual dyes or chemicals. Label quilt "Bama Bound Quilts" and include the maker's name, location and date. Send the quilt in a medium size, coordinating tote bag with at least one front pocket. Please include a small stuffed animal in the pocket. Please send to the contact address below.

If you have any more questions you can direct them to

I know THIS Alabama girl sure is glad Michelle got this together so I will be putting a package together soon.  I am also going to throw in a thank you for any of the Tulip Patch followers who complete a quilt/tote/animal for Bama Bound Quilts...a free PDF pattern of your choice.  I know that it's not much, but I wanted to say thanks to those donating their time and materials to help those in my home state.  Just email me a pic of your quilt.  If you have a blog and don't mind me sharing the link/pic in the future, please let me know.
