It’s been raining QUILTS!

March 15, 2014

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,

More Fat Quarter Challenge Quilts

January 14, 2014

Today we’re featuring two quilts I’ve received from Texas quilters! Ann F and Glenda H both sent me their Fat Quarter Challenge quilts and aren’t they great? I received Ann’s last month and Glenda’s this month. What a great way to end and start the year!

FQC Ann Farmer FQC Glenda Hood

It’s always fun to open the box and see the creativity each quilter brings to the sewing machines. To think that each one of these quilts was started with just one fat quarter and look how unique they are! I know the children will absolutely hug these tight and have many happy thoughts as they look at their quilts and snuggle under them at night. Thank you so much, Ann and Glenda! Your time and talents are greatly appreciated by all of us at Quilts Beyond Borders and children all over the world! Without the generosity of quilters like you, we could not do what we do!

Smiles,

Sandi
