It’s that time of year again.
18 days until Kylie’s 17th birthday. And she’s not here to celebrate (stupid cancer). That’s why WE celebrate her legacy of joy, hope, and generosity each year with #OperationSmiley. To be perfectly honest, I’ve lost count a bit of how many quilts we’ve made as part of this project the last two years. We made 10 in 2017, we aimed for 16 in 2018, and I think we were sent blocks for about 30?! Crazy!! Y’all’s block making skills were so overwhelmingly generous last year that we’re actually still finishing those quilts which is why we’re going to do something a little bit different this year:
Who: You and your Quilty Friends
What: Make quilt tops and finished quilts using Cluck Cluck Sew’s 10” (finished) heart block pattern (Click here for the pattern). Each top/ quilt should be made from 20 blocks in a 4x5 layout with a 5” (finished) border
When: February- April 2019. Please send all tops/ quilts to Quilts for Cure by April 30th, 2019.
Where: Mail to: Quilts for Cure c/o HollyAnne Knight PO Box 1831 Duluth GA 30096
Goal: 17 quilts for Kylie’s 17th Birthday

This is an amazing opportunity for teamwork. If you are a “topper” or just want to make a few blocks, I encourage you to team up with a friend (or five) and make a quilt together. Many hands make light work!
(Speaking of many hands: on the label, please include the First Name, Last Initial (or name), and state of each quilter who helps with your quilts as well as “Operation Smiley 2019 with Quilts for Cure”!)
Want to support #OperationSmiley but not yet a quilter? Please donate to Quilts for Cure to cover shipping costs, supplies to finish quilts, etc!
Thank you for your continued generosity!!
