Blocks for Margaret's Hope Chest

Carin, founder of the charity organization Margaret's Hope Chest, decided to put together a quilting bee. If you haven't read the story behind MHC, I recommend you check it out. The way they have been able to create something so positive and good from such a tragic event is very inspiring.

Not only was the bee for a great cause, but Carin also made it very easy to participate: just make two blocks and send them in. Easy peasy! So I signed myself up to help in making blocks for two different quilts.

For Jordan's quilt:

These were made using Cluck Cluck Sew’s Stack and Whack Block tutorial.

For Frankee's quilt:

Glittery, sparkly goodness! These were made using Crazy Mom Quilt’s Hourglass Block tutorial (but starting with a 9" square instead of a 6").

Contributing was such a simple thing, and fun to do too!


  1. Your blocks look great! So fun!! I love that car fabric with that yellow. I have never heard of MHC before. I'm going to check it out. Thanks for posting a link.
