Sanctuary Village: The Collection Grows!


My sweet blog friend Janet In Utah wrote to say she wanted to send a top or two for the Sanctuary Village project. She shared photos of several gorgeous flimsies she was ready to give away.

I thought this one was just delightful. I mean, what's not to get breathless over? The colors? The pattern? The precision? It's a Bonnie Hunter design and Janet sent it to me to have finished for someone neither of us knows.

I am no longer surprised by the generosity of quilters. I just love it.

Lizzy liked this quilt a lot, too. She's a purple kind of gal.

This top and the other two shown in this post bring the quilts/potential quilts count to ten already! And enough have been promised that my goal of a dozen quilts really is achievable. I'll know in another month if I have received the grant money for finishing them.

Here's the second top that Janet sent. My husband loves it (but I didn't take his picture in front of it). The colors are so warm and gentle.

Just as we were getting the clothesline up to photograph Janet's quilts, the postman came bringing this treasure from dear Julie in Tennessee. Geese, geese, and more geese, all going the same direction the way they do. Thoughtful Julie even sent fabric that matches the border for binding.

I am grateful to see those quilt tops go to help others. Thank you for the opportunity to participate, Nancy.
Julie's top is a real sparkler.

When all of these are finished, I would love to see a clothesline display … Janet’s tops are gorgeous.

If needed, I would be willing to take on the binding for some of the quilts, maybe a half a dozen or so. We are both in SE PA and that would facilitate a meeting at a LQS for a drop off. I like to make bias binding, I have plenty of fabric to match quilts that came without matching binding for machine applied binding finish.

I just checked USPS tracking. The box I sent to you is "in transit, arriving late" as of May 15.
They are all wonderful! I need to make a quilt similar to Julie's to get over my stumbles with geese. Surely by the end I'd have it!
