It’s been raining QUILTS!

I know most of the country has been getting deluged with snow and ice, but here in Utah, it’s been raining quilts! With an upcoming trip to Ethiopia soon, we are eagerly gathering quilts and these quilts are greatly appreciated. This storm started all the way in South America! The first quilt featured was made by Rejane M , who lives in Brasil. She visited our booth at International Quilt Festival in Houston and picked up a fat quarter. She returned home and made the quilt and while visiting family in New York, she mailed me the quilt, so this quilt already has many miles on it and it’s hasn’t even found it’s owner yet!

Our next storm started in North Carolina and picked up steam, and another quilt, in Illinois. These two quilts are also Fat Quarter Challenge quilts, the first from Ann B and the second from Sandra O.

Just a reminder to those of you who took home fat quarters from Houston, you do get extra chances to win that $100 prize by turning in your quilt to me as early as you can. This month is an extra 7 chances, so keep the quilt showers coming! 

These next quilts blew in from all across the country. We greatly appreciate the joint efforts of these piecers and quilters. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. Thanks goes out to:

Della Burwell

Sharleen Rainville

Sue Bickham

Quilting For Christ Ministry in Texas (they will be featured numerous times in the future I’m sure as they donated many, many tops to us in Houston)

Linda Cadzow (who also sent us 7 tops. We LOVE it when quilters go through their stash and send us unfinished projects!!)

I think the children are going to have a very hard time deciding which quilt to claim as they are all so beautiful and unique. Thank you all so very much!

Smiles,

    I also have eight quilt tops I have made for Quilts Beyond Borders ( inspired when I accidentally found your blog). I started making tops after the first of the year. Please let me know the best place to send them. I live in Washington state. Thank you, Kathy Elston Elstonkd@yahoo.com
