As you may know, I'm putting together a churn dash quilt to send off to victims of the recent tornadoes that hit the midwest. And I had several lovely ladies mail me blocks so that I wouldn't have to do this all by my lonesome!
Blocks from Anna.
Blocks from Francesca.
Blocks from my quilting sensei K and her mama.
Blocks from Sarah.
And these are five of the six that I've made. Today, I'll be piecing the blocks together, and I hope to have this basted and quilted really really soon! Isn't this going to be a fabulous quilt? I'm so excited to see it come together, and I'm so thankful to everyone who sent me blocks. (Thank you!!!)
I should also mention that I had a handful of lovely friends (Jenny, Deirdre, Renee) send me financial donations via paypal, which almost entirely covered the cost of batting and backing. So thank you to them too! I'm always amazed by the generosity of others. I know the world can be a really ugly place, but sometimes, it's not. Sometimes, people are just nice and kind and unselfish. And I'm really really glad to see that.
I'll post more updates as I get this lovely put together. I'm so excited to get it done and in the mail. I'd like to have it ready by Christmas. Fingers crossed!
