 I am blown away by how many of you have contacted me to say they made blocks for my donation quilt project.  The blocks are now coming in daily and I am sorting them into little stacks for future designs.  I have already made one quilt (that I hope to share on Friday) and the second top is just about complete.

My goal was to make about 6 quilts with these blocks but I think there are going to be far more!  Thanks so much!!

I am so glad I took advantage of Connecting Threads recent sale and bought some fabrics for backings.  I think I got between 4 and 8 yards of these prints.  Hopefully they will be enough.  If not, I know I have a bunch of navy-blue backs which will work in my stash.

I am really liking how these colors are working out.  Being the first block drive, I wanted to choose something gender neutral to fill the pipeline with quilts that would work for everyone.

If you donated blocks, be sure and check out my Friday posts - that is where I usually post my finishes so you can look for your blocks.  I hope to make my first delivery of quilts at the end of December so 2023 starts out with lots of love and comfort!

Oh wow, that's wonderful. I look forward to seeing all the quilts you are able to make and donate and hooray for fabric sales to get large yardages for backings!
