So far we have had so very many kind offers for donations of fabric for the backing, Batting for the centers and thread to do the quilting. Thank you all so very much! We will surely use them!
When I say "we" I am referring to my wonderful quilting guild and club here in town...as well as my fabulous friends what are going to help out as well. It is going to be an old fashioned quilting bee with participants from all over the world. We are all going to meet together, stitch up the quilt blocks into tops, stack them, and quilt what we can. It will be a great start. I wish you could come so I could meet you all and give you a personal thank you! After we are finished with the quilts we will work with the quilt guild in Victoria to find suitable homes for each and every quilt.
What a fantastic thing we have going here. Thank you so much for your response to it and all your hard work.
This most wonderful wonky star is by Sara's Scraps...it is just perfectly wonky...more of a super nova almost. So much personality and look at all that Improvisational piecing! I love this star.
This fantastic quilt top is by fissiett. Don't you love the tiny stars within the colored stars? I sure do. Also, can you see the twinkle in this top? I love how this looks.
This vivid quilt top is by Quiltsalad. The twinkle looks so good and the warm tones are wonderful.
This one is by LauraJay. The sweet pinks and white will make it lovely for a little girl who has lost her house.
This last top of the evening is from byneedleandthread. The jewel tones sparkle so nicely.
Can you believe that these ladies have whipped together entire quilt tops for this project...and in just such a short amount of time? I am amazed! Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!
I know several of you have already mailed out blocks and tops and supplies, I will post as soon as I get your things so you can know that they have arrived safe and sound. It takes about 7 to 10 days to get things mailed from the US....I am not completely sure of international mail, but rest assured I will let you know as soon as I get your handmade love for the people of Victoria!
OK, I am going to try to get a couple more bags further along the bag making process!
