Hope Quilts blog hop

It's a new month (is it really December already??) and there's a new blog hop going on this month that I think you will really enjoy.  The theme is "Hope Quilts" and it's all about special quilt projects that have helped individuals get through difficult circumstances.   As quilters, we know how therapeutic working on a quilt can be.  Research has shown that quilting lifts our mood, exercises our minds, provides social interaction and makes us feel productive.  It teaches us new skills and motivates us to keep learning.  It also gives us a way to help and comfort others.  There's something so wonderful about giving one of your lovingly made quilts to a grateful recipient.  Quilting is definitely a work of heart!

Each of the bloggers in this blog hop will be sharing their own special stories about the quilts they have made that have special significance to them.  It will be an encouraging and uplifting time that will hopefully inspire you on your own quilting journey.

Sarah Marcina at The Quilted Diary is hosting this blog hop, and she will also be introducing a new quilt along she is starting in January called "Hope for Tomorrow".  Sounds delightful and looks beautiful!

If you sign up for this quilt along during December's blog hop, you will get special offers from some of the Hope Quilts bloggers.  Click on the picture to go to The Quilted Diary website for more information.

So if you're ready for some uplifting reading material and a break from all the bad news out there, join us for the Hope Quilts blog hop this month.  It's sure to brighten your day!
