World of Charity Stitching

Okay, one last quick post for the night...

Anyone who has been following my blog has seen my progress at various times for squares for World of Charity Stitching. This group of stitchers from around the world donate completed squares that are made into anything from quilts to bags to pillows to cards for children at Ronald McDonald House and seniors who may not have anyone looking out for them. I have contributed three squares thus far: Knotted Hearts and Have a Heart seen here with their fabrics and Birdhouse Neighborhood seen here with it's coordinating fabric. May Lily of the Valley Teacup will be my fourth contribution when it is done.

Tonight, Bonnie, one of our members who puts together these wonderful squares into beautiful quilts, posted pictures of the quilt tops for each of these quilts and I have to share them just to show you all how wonderful it is to see pieces come together to make a treasured gift for a complete stranger:

Birdhouse Quilt - My square is in the upper left corner!

Knotted Hearts Quilt - My square is the purple one, third square from the left, second row from the bottom

Have a Heart Quilt - My square is on the bottom row, second from the right
Aren't these quilts stunning? It really gives me an even greater sense of pride in my own finished projects when I see just how clearly they are just part of a greater whole! I highly encourage you to join WOCS - you pick what you want to stitch, which projects you want to join, whenever you wish to do them. It's a wonderful organization, and we would love to have you join us!

Until next time!


  1. What a lovely idea, and those quilts are beautiful! It's something I would love to do when things in my life slow down a bit. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Great job! I also stitch for WOCS, and I can even tell you where my Have a Heart squares are.....I have a long name and I put it in a weird place so I can tell which are mine. Okay the second from the right on the top row is mine, and the second from the left on the fourth row. It is very thrilling to see your own work going toward a good cause! Keep up the good work!


  3. These quitlts are amazing - thank you so much for sharing this link with us. What a wonderful cause

  4. I am in a group on Facebook with a similar set up - like you I really enjoy doing them and it gives a sense of pride in your work when you see them along with everyone else's in the finished project. Well done :)

  5. Katy, your square is bottom row, second from the right or row 6 square 5

  6. I stitch for WOCS too and I have to say even after 4 years of stitching for WOCS, it still gives me great pleasure to see my square on a beautiful quilt. Thanks for posting about us on your blog, Katy.

  7. What a great post, Katy! I also stitch for WOCS and I love to see my square on the quilt when it's finished. I added the final quilt photos to my Finishes page on my blog after the picture of my square. I'm sure you have just recruited more members today!
