Quilter's are amazing!

this may sound weird, but i never knew quilter's were amazing :)

in the last few weeks i have been blown away by the way that quilter's come together and help each other.  i also love that people are not afraid to ask for help, or encouraging others to get together to make quilts for others.

i randomly started quilting because i thought i might like it - it wasn't until the wonderful world of blogging that i started to find out how generous, kind, and universally great quilters are!

two recent examples:

Liz has requested orphan blocks for a quilt that she is making for her friend Sue - check it out at Liz's blog and then send the ones in your pile that you aren't using.  very happy to send a couple i had lying around

also Leona is making a comfort quilt for her sister who is unwell - she is requesting 9" blocks, with a signature on them so her sister can see the love!  see her blog for more details.  i made...

and i very much hope her sister can feel the love

if you've got some time, or some spare blocks, why not send along and help out?

good work, fellow quilters!  you all rock

pugs and kisses

Thank you for making a block for my sister! I am sure that she will be so happy when she sees the blocks made by different quilters, and can feel the sentiment.
