Reason #5 to Love Quilting

Joyful Heart #21
Reason #5 to Love the World of Quilt Art: Quilters give comfort to others. Quilt makers are generous people. They make quilts for friends, co-workers, and people in need from premature babies to elderly  veterans. Quilt makers give to charities.

And because you are a generous quilt maker you support Virginia Spiegel's Fiber Art for a Cause fundraiser. Many of you know that Virginia is a fundraising dynamo who has raised over $215,000 for the American Cancer Society. All this through sales and donations of work by fiber artists!

So if you are a fiber artist, a lover of fiber art, or a fiber artist lover, please check out the Fiber Art for a Cause website and see how you can help in fighting cancer today.
 Happy Valentine's Day!

I am working on a quilt for my sister who is going to be going through treatment, soon, but I like the idea of making pieces for auction too. I have done some for our local shelter, but want to do quilts for others.
