Calling All Quilt Tops!April 11, 2011 at 7:34 pm | Posted in Craftivism, Portland, Quilting Bees | 5 Comments
Today is the one-month anniversary of the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and we wanted to reach out to everyone who’s been piecing blocks or sewing quilt tops for QfQ with a huge thank-you for the wonderful support.
We are really gearing up for our late-April quilts donation to Tsushin Patchwork’s quilt drive and if you’ve got blocks or especially tops to donate, we would LOVE to get them as soon as possible.
If you can ship them to our PO box, bring them to a bee (especially the one Thursday afternoon), or make arrangements with us, we would love that!
Special thank-you to Rachel and Cherri (and Kaci!) for their beautiful focus on making tops, long-arm quilting a first beautiful round of sandwiches, and hosting our upcoming bees on Thursday and Friday.
Thursday is from 1 to 6, Friday is from 1 to 9 (extended hours!!), and both are at Sew On Studio, 6635 North Baltimore Ave, Suite 263, Portland OR 97203.
And thank you to everyone who has spread the word, donated fabric, come to a bee, or helped the relief efforts in any way.
We’re so thankful for our community!
(All quilts and tops are from our flickr pool – just click each one to find out a bit more about them and their makers!!)
Hope to see you Thursday or Friday!
