These blocks are for a charity quilt Rebekah is putting together for Children’s Village in Detroit. It was a great project to work on. I’ve always wanted to try this Maverick Star (link to tutorial). I was only planning on making 3 blocks, but had so much fun, I couldn’t stop.
I really need to do more charitable sewing. I know it would bless my life. I’m so impressed by all the women I’ve observed doing and making handmade goods for others in need. Sometimes, okay often, I’ve felt guilty that I’m not doing more to ‘save the world.’ (I’m probably not the only woman who feels this way.) I have to step back and remind myself that “feeding the hungry and clothing the naked” applies to my own children as well – because they are often both hungry and naked.
Still, it is absolutely inspiring what good in the world can be done by the “small and simple” efforts of women everywhere giving a little something extra. Here’s to more of it!
