Sew Caring – Texas, we want to help

A long time ago someone recited this poem:

 “Life is mostly froth and bubble;

Two things stand like stone:

Kindness in another’s trouble,

Courage in our own”

– Adam Lindsay.

That is how quilters are to me.

I was fortunate enough to experience firsthand the kindness of quilters. As a group…

or as an individual, they reach out to help others.

Expecting nothing in return, they are just happy to see a smile from the quilt recipient.

Amid the devastation that we witnessed this past week from Hurricane Harvey we have seen tragedy and loss but we have also seen compassion and kindness for those in need of help.  People are doing what they can to assist neighbors and strangers alike during this difficult time.  The damage caused by this storm will continue to be seen after the flood waters recede. Houston and the surrounding areas will continue to need help and support.

We need to stand united.

Laundry Basket Quilts is proud to announce our Sew Caring Fundraiser.  From now until October 15th we pledge that every “Made in USA” pattern that we sell $5.00 of our proceeds will go towards helping with the recovery from this devastating storm.

 Thank you for helping us make a difference.

Our hope is to present “Made in USA” quilts along with the money we raise for families and businesses in the Houston area this October.

We will also be accepting “Made in USA” quilt blocks from any generous quilters that would like to make a block to be included in the quilts.  Make sure to sign your block.  The blocks can be mailed to:

    This is a wonderful way to support not only Houston but the small towns in South Texas that took a direct hit from the Category 4 hurricane Harvey and were decimated. As a South Texan (I live near Corpus Christi) I have seen my friends and neighbors in Port Aransas, Rockport, Ingleside, Refugio, and other small communities virtually wiped off the map. Please include them in your support efforts. With all the media coverage on Houston they feel forgotten.

    I really would like to get this pattern – but the shipping rates are exorbitant – over $8 dollars (Priority Post) to an APO address. I don’t know why it has to be priority.

    Would it be possible to have a pdf version of this?
