End of year giving to Mercy Corps and winding down QfQ

December 29, 2011 at 10:09 pm | Posted in Craftivism, Fundraising, Portland | Leave a comment

Hello lovely QfQ supporters!

We are closing in on the end of 2011 and with it, the end of our QfQ fundraiser for Mercy Corps. After this next week of fundraising, we will donate the remaining quilts to Bradley-Angle House, a shelter here in Portland that serves women and children in need. Thank you more than we can say for the beautiful support – to everyone who donated fabric, pieced blocks, sashed tops, basted, quilted, tied, and bound these quilts. So many of you put your hearts into these quilts – thank you so much!

After we sent 30 of our community-made quilts to Japan in April,

Quilts for Quake Survivors - Japan Shipment

we’ve raised $2150 (and counting) for Mercy Corps. One of the most wonderful moments of our QfQ experience was meeting Minda, an amazing Mercy Corps fundraiser, who purchased a beautiful set of quilts with a generous donation from her and her mother. Here are two of our favorites that she chose!

Daniela and Minda of Mercy Corps with some of the QfQ quilts she bought!

We still have a beautiful collection of quilts for sale to benefit Mercy Corps. Update: 019 is SOLD to Allison, thank you so much, Allison! Here is a new quilt, with a couple more to come this week as we round them up from the last quilters – Block of the Month 3 – 019! It was sashed from block-of-the-month blocks donated by Cool Cottons,

Block of the Month 3 - 019

backed in white, gorgeously long-arm quilted by Nancy Stovall in an all-over circles and spokes pattern,

and machine-bound by Susan with orange and hot pink binding. It measures about 58″ x 45″.
