MHCIf you like happy endings be sure to check out my art & craft column in today’s Grand Rapids Press. I wrote an update about the smashing success of the Margaret’s Hope Chest “Hope Squared” Quilt drive. Carol Peters (left) and her daughter, Carin Vogelzang, mobilized quilters around the globe (with help from the Crazy Mom Quilts blog and Craft Hope) to collect hundreds of quilts for children who will living in homeless shelters during the Christmas holiday.

Carol and Carin were guests on CraftSanity episode 105. Tune in to hear the inspiring story of how they got started, and read the first column I wrote about them back in October.

It was amazing to see all the quilts piled up in Carol’s house. (Check out the online quilt gallery.) Thanks to all of you who contributed lovely quilts to this cause. This charity effort is a wonderful reminder that great things happen when crafters work together for a cause.
