The blocks have arrived, and oh boy - have we been working with them!!
I was so tickled when J-L , one of the founders of MQX Shows asked if I thought a block drive could help our project. She generously set it up so that all participants could bring blocks to a dinner event, and she would handle the rest. I believe over 500 blocks were brought. They were split between me and the New England QOV group - Whoot Whoot!!!
Can you imagine yummy quilts we will have?
Here we are setting some of them up on the design wall... contemplating sashings, borders, layouts..... yum!!
J-L and Mary have been awesome supporters of Quilts of Valor for years, from having booths at their shows, to providing backings when we had special projects, and now doing this block drive. It is so wonderful to have such support!!
If you are attending the Portland Quilt show - be sure to thank them!! By the way - they are taking entries and you can sign up for that show RIGHT! SMACK! NOW!! CHECK it out
Thanks again for all the support!
I look forward to showing you the tops that we make!
