Quilt Aid 2010

It's almost time for Quilt Aid 2010, a wonderfully innovative way for quilters to enjoy what they love doing and at the same time to raise funds for the Addis Adaba Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia.

Helen (who has been heavily involved in the setting up of this charity) of 'hugs 'n kisses' patterns and Hugs from Helen blog is running a QuiltAid 2010 guess the blocks competition, offering a complete set of block patterns and one finishing kit pattern. (No fabrics, patterns only)
Visit Helen to be part of the competition, after all you've gotta be in it to win it!
Just to scroll through her post and look at all the quilt blocks is eye candy in itself!
(Betcha block 6 is from our LPS, Patchwork Angel........)

For those who missed out on Quilt Aid 2009, a little info......
12 Designers team up with 12 stores to design a themed quilt block, using a pre-chosen fabric pallet.
Each of the stores then designs a finishing kit, each kit giving a vastly different look to the finished quilt.
To have a look at last years Quilt Aid click on the link to explore a lovely informative site with pics of each block as well as the 12 finishing kits.
All the information is there regarding the rules and how to order and pay.
