Earlier this spring, I wrote quite a few posts on quilting. You may remember me starting at the very beginning with cutting fabric, and working my way all the way through to binding your quilt, and tagging it. There were a lot of posts in between, including nine traditional quilt block tutorials, and the basics of basting and quilting. (I have listed all of them at the end of this post if you’d like to go back and see a specific one.) At the end of the long process, I announced that my quilt would be donated to the Pottstown Pennsylvania’s Relay for Life, to be raffled off. The proceeds would then go to the American Cancer Society. Well, the results are in! The raffles were $1 a piece, and my quilt earned $417! I would like to thank everyone that bought a chance and in turn, contributed to finding a cure for cancer. I hope this becomes an annual tradition for me and for Nikki, In Stitches. I already have my eyes open for a quilt I could make next spring, and ideas are running through my head for tutorials, tips and hints to go along with it. If you would like to make a donation, please contact the American Cancer Society, or, if you would like to donate a quilt to your neighborhood Relay for Life, please click on the link provided to find a contact person in your area.
You may also remember that all of the these posts were highlighted on another blog, Jojo’s Gift Shoppe. Joelle put up all of my block tutorials and sent a ton of traffic to my blog. Considering these posts went up early in my blogging career, I was so happy to see more viewers to my projects. I couldn’t thank her enough! Apparently, she was even more thankful to me though, because in the mail the other day, I received this package of fabric! Look at all that is in here! A jelly roll, a honey bun, turnovers, and layer cakes all in Moda’s Patisserie. Isn’t this beautiful? Thank you, Joelle! And all of you, please check out Joelle’s blog and her online store, where she has tons of ideas and great deals on fabric.
Any suggestions for what to make with this? I have so many ideas, I can’t pick a favorite!
Here are all of the links to my quilting posts. Enjoy!
