It's such a wonderful hobby isn't it? And the fact that we have a huge online community to share it in is even better.
I met Kathy last year through one of my blog giveaways and we got to emailing. You know when you just click with someone - anyway, Kathy had posted this last year and I thought it was a great way to help out and be generous with a hobby I love.
She had her son in July and wanted to give back to the hospital unit who had been so kind to them.
So I thought I'd ask all of you if any of you would be interested in helping out too?
We are asking for 8.5" quilt blocks - that's all...I was thinking a pinwheel block would be good so they could all match in style, but we could just do different colors. Kathy has offered to sew up the tops - but if we get too many I will help out with that as well.
I'm already planning to just send a couple of quilts (she said they should be around 24" x 36" so pretty small) to her and if you feel inclined to send a quilt (and you can make it any style - not just pinwheels) that would be awesome!
I'm having a giveaway to help sweeten the deal too....for every block you send in, you get one entry....a quilt will get you 10 entries. So what's the giveaway?
How about some munki fabrics....
and a pillow cover - something like this...
(I'll find out the winner's color preferences and then custom-make them one - does that sound good?)
So leave me a comment if you are interested in making a quilt block (or two) and I'll send you my email.
Kathy lives in Canada so I figure it will be cheaper for everyone to send their blocks to me and I'll send them in one big package to Kathy....I hate to put a deadline on this but we will eventually need to finish the quilts so let's say May 1st....that way I can announce the giveaway winner right after...
OK hope we can get some quilts together - I think I'll go work on mine now!
