Ring, ring!

Ok, is that title telling my age when I’m talking about a telephone? 🙂 In my defense, it was my cell phone ringing so that at least brings me to the 90’s, right? Anyway, I received the kind of phone call that all regional coordinators dream about! A very nice lady named Becky was calling asking for my address. She stated that she and a friend had asked Carla for some quilt tops last fall that they could quilt for us and oh my! What a great job they did! As the conversation continued, I asked her how many quilts she was sending. She casually replied, “18 I think”. Whoa! That’s REALLY the type of phone calls that regional coordinators enjoy getting! Hot diggity. I was on pins and needles waiting for that package to arrive and it was so much fun to ooh and aah as each one was taken from the box. They certainly had a lot of fun quilting these, I think, as you can see when you do a close up on the pictures. She actually apologized that it had taken her awhile to get them done. No apologies needed! These are wonderful, happy quilts. Some of them even have a really cool binding on them. I’m not sure if they’ll show up in the pictures but kind of like a double binding. Does that make sense? I’m sure there’s a much better name for them but that’s the best I can do right at this moment. Can you imagine trying to pick just ONE of these if you were receiving one? Of course, we send a big THANK YOU out also to the wonderful ladies who took the time to create all these beautiful tops as well. It’s always fun to see the imagination and creativity of the piecers. Today we have everything from panels to strip piecing to wonky log cabins to one that is just a single log cabin block; from brights to pastels to deeper, boyish colors and they all look fantastic.

    Would love to volunteer my longarm quilting skills. I’m having trouble locating email address so hoping to get a response from this site.

    Hi Joanna! If you go to the links on the upper right side of this blog page you’ll see a number of pages that provide info like Where to Send Quilts, Info for Longarmers, etc. Those entries include links to our email IDs, but you can also reach us at quiltsbeyondborders@gmail.com

    Send us a note to that email ID letting us know what your address is and how many tops you’d like to quilt and we’ll have one of our Regional Coordinators send some out to you. Thank you so much for your interest in our charity and your willingness to donate your talents! We really appreciate it!
