Sanctuary Village Quilts: Four Flimsies, One Quilt
I set a goal of providing a brand new quilt for each of the initial twelve residents.
Some readers wrote that they would like to be part of this effort. I didn't respond at the time because there were many unanswered questions.
My friend Kathy, undeterred, sent this beautiful finished quilt. The very first quilt for Sanctuary Village.
At this point, I am happy to accept any help with this project. If you wish to donate a finished quilt or a flimsy, please email me and I will provide my mailing address. I am looking for quilts or flimsies that are approximately 68" by 86". A little bigger would be fine!
I have applied for a grant that will cover the backing, batting, and quilting of flimsies that I (or you) make or donate. My local machinist has offered me a very special rate for machine-quilting these quilts.
I have been busy, myself, making flimsies. Take a look:
|Variations on Sister's Choice block made from a FQ pack I couldn't resist at Stash Fabrics.|
|Improved Nine Patch made from scraps. Hand pieced blocks, machine set.|
|I don't know where I saw the quilt that inspired this, but inspired I was. Made from mostly Australian Aboriginal fabrics with some Kaffe thrown in.|
|Another Improved Nine Patch (I personally call this block Elongated Nine Patch because I don't believe a nine-patch can be improved upon). Blocks hand-pieced, machine set.|
