I have a few quilty things to talk about today.
First, I finished the first #OperationSmiley quilt! I haven’t counted up all the blocks recently, but I’m confident we will make 10 quilts. I took the components of quilts 2 and 3 to Red Hen today where they will be completed by students. I have pieced the main part of quilt 4, and will add borders tomorrow. I hope that I will also get it sandwiched and basted so that I can get back to quilting a column each night– both for progress on the quilts and for regular free motion quilting practice.
Second, I’m am searching for a willing quilter who lives in or near North Carolina. I received a message from a grandmother this week requesting a quilt for her 15 year old grandson, Nicholas, with an inoperable brain tumor. I think a twin sized quilt (70 x 90 inches) would be just right. If you are interested, please email me at hollyanne (at) quiltsforcure.org, and I’ll get you more info. Also, please help spread the word!!
Finally, don’t forget that Quilts for Cure is accepting completed quilts. You can find out more info on our Donate Quilts page, or email me at hollyanne (at) quiltsforcure.org.
1) Spread the word to help us find a quilter to make a twin sized quilt for Nicholas. If you’re interested, please email me at hollyanne (at) quiltsforcure.org
2) Gather your orphan blocks, UFOs, and do some stash busting, and make a quilt for a child with cancer!
3) Tell your quilty friends and guild members about Quilts for Cure in person and on social media. Share this post!
