End of year giving to Mercy Corps and winding down QfQ

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″.

Orange and Yellow has a beautiful color scheme that is joyful and friendly. the blocks were donated, pieced at the Cool Cottons bee way back in may. Sashed and backed with donated yardage and sandwiched with a lofty, warm poly fill batting. It was quilted with a block pattern at Modern Domestic. And finally hand bound.

Funky pinks - 013

This is such a fun and vibrant quilt! I don’t remember if it was donated in blocks or pieced here at one of the bees. Yet many of the strips look so familiar that I tend to think it was made out of donated strips only! This quilt is one of those where you can almost feel the fun the makers had! Many of us said how exhilarating it is to try to piece blocks out of fabric, print and color combos that we otherwise would have never chosen. And how fun is the outcome!
The back was donated at the Sew On! quilt studio bee. The design is the NW Modern quilt, one of the many projects from Susan’s book Modern Log Cabin Quilting available here at Amazon.

Traditional Quilt - 012

I wish I could correctly name the donor of this lofty quilt. The whole quilt got donated for sale through donation from a generous supporter! It might be a more traditional design, but it’s been sewn and quilted precisely with what I’d think is a lofty and warm polyfill.

Dimensions: 52″ x 75″

Wonky Squares - 011

This absolutely wonderful quilt designed and donated by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Franson! is a total stunner. A blog/site that I would always recommend to anybody interested in quilting and patchworking. Her aesthetic is beautiful, her instruction clear and concise and definitely the best resource besides taking a quilting class from her at Modern Domestic when you happen to not live in town. This quilt was also part of her beautiful book Practical Guide to Patchwork available on Amazon.

Because of it’s larger dimension, the unique design and the exquisit stippling (I tried it myself yet need a loooot of practice until I am anywhere near Elizabeth’s skissl), we priced it at $200. No wonder it sold immediately. I myself purchased it – the color scheme beautifully bridges my daughters bedroom colors and it will always be a keepsake, reminding me of QfQ.

There are over 10 more quilts to be posted over the next few weeks! We are posting each M,W,F – so come back and see what’s still available and consider donating to Mercy Corps.

If you are interested in purchasing any of the quilts posted so far. Please go to our Mercy Corps Japan fundraising site and donate $150 or whatever the quilt you love has been priced at (shipping is on us). Through the site you can donate to ANY cause you’d like the money to go to. Just state your preferred cause in the subject line. Mercy Corps will distribute the funds according to your specifications on the back end. Then send an email to quiltsforquakesurvivors@gmail.com with the donation confirmation number and the number of the quilt and your shipping address. We will send you a confirmation email and ship the quilt within 48 hours via USPS.
