I know I say this over and over but I just can't believe the response of this Bushfire Quilt Project. I have another big stack of quilt blocks I need to post as arrived safe and sound and some lovely quilt tops and fully complete quilts. But I am so pressed for time (or I was, but now it is spring break and we are just hanging out at the house).
I wanted to give you all a big thank you for all your wonderful encouragement in the way of the little cards and letters you have included with your quilts and blocks. I have several I want to share with you all that are so beautifully written and they all have such wonderful message. What a great community of people you all are.
At this point I have well over 1500 quilt blocks with more arriving everyday. I have about 30 quilt tops and 12 beautifully finished quilts to give to the people of Victoria. I am pretty sure we will have over 100 quilts that we have all worked on together. What a Quilting Bee!
I hope this lovely weekend finds you well and happy. I am about to lay low as far as the Online world goes due to some visitors in town.
I am loving this fabric together and really want to make a strip quilt with it....but where to find the time? I only have several bags left, so I can't tell you the weight that is about to be lifted from my shoulders. I really won't know what to do with myself without a bunch of uniforms in my closet and dining room table! I guess I will be doing a heap of quilting with the star quilts.
Speaking of which, I am working on the most beautiful blue and white quilt (Bushfire quilt). Victoria Shockey sent 24 amazing quilt blocks and a heap of the fabric she used in the blocks. I went ahead and made one extra to make them all into one quilt top. I am now in the process of stripping some of the fabric she sent and it is going to be so wonderful and the fabric you sent is great too! Victoria...Do you have a website? You are one spectacular piecer I would LOVE to see more of your work. I have googled you, but I can't find you.... I hope that doesn't sound too bizarre. I love looking at all your blocks and the various techniques you have used to achieve the same goal.
OK...I need to go battle the laundry on my bed, and I also need to go get more clothes pins since our dryer decided to quit this morning. Good thing it is a zillion degrees and not a cloud in the sky.
