    There are many places to donate to. Older children and teens would love a quilt like this. Quilt for kids, Project linus, Homeless shelters, Women's shelters, disaster relief programs, Local hospitals, etc. check out your area and find a cause you would like to donate to. Beautiful quilt. Love scrap quilts~they are the best!

    Love your quilt!
    I just hang onto any unclaimed quilts or tops and when a gift giving occasion comes around I just invite the person to come over and pick the one they like.

    Most quilt guilds have projects they are working in their community/county. Foster programs, women's center. Families in need, Project Linus, your local hospital, etc. Your quilt is beautiful.

    I like to use big scrap pieces, too. Mine are donated through my guild. They go to foster children, nursing home residents and QOV.
