On the way!April 27, 2011 at 3:46 am | Posted in Craftivism, Portland, Quilting Bees | 3 Comments
So happy to report that THIRTY beautiful handmade comfort quilts are on their way to Seven Islands in California, to then make their journey across the Pacific to Japan!
Daniela bound one this morning, I bound one this afternoon while Everett napped, and Teresa was kind enough to bring a lovely baby quilt she’d made over to boost our total donations from 27 to 30. We snapped a last round of photos and ran over to the UPS Store!
Photos of all are in the flickr group, with more on the way for the Mercy Corps fundraiser. We’ll let you know when we launch the Etsy store and would love to stay in touch about spreading the word and further donations of blocks, quilts tops, or quilts, if you’re interested. Daniela is at Modern Domestic hosting a bee right now, in fact, and May 7 & 8 will bring our weekend of quilting for the fundraiser – would love to see you then!!!
Can’t say thank you enough to everyone who teamed up with us on this project. We’re just two mothers with three kids and about five jobs between us who have been so fortunate to connect with awesome, kind and generous people willing to help make beautiful things for a crucial cause. Thank you to everyone who has jumped in with us this crazy month!
