I think I am suffering from block envy.
And been inspired by the generous creativity of others.
I've been sewing the blocks together, as and when they've come, so there's be no great thought to placement of colour and blocks. Yet, I still think each quilt is turning out a happy riot of colour.
It's a United Nations creation of colour and thought with blocks in this one from Germany, Australia, Canada, the USA and one from me.
Did I mention it's been windy?
Like f.o.r.e.v.e.r windy.
I have some blocks left over to start the next 'Soy Amado' quilt but it's not enough. There have now been over a thousand views of my post detailing how you can help. Imagine if everyone who read it had responded - that would be a lot of quilts and some!
All I need are 12 1/2" unfinished quilted blocks and I can turn them into quilts for kids who will love and cherish something that belongs to them and was made just for them.
I'll take anything: everyone seems to have orphan blocks lying around. Too small? No problem, just add a border around it and it'll be fine. Too big? Just cut it down to size. Add batting and backing, quilt it and you're done.
If you're feeling so inclined whole quilts can be sent to an address in the Netherlands which I can provide. Email me for the address.
Quilt blocks to me - just email me for my address.
In the US and concerned about the postage costs for mailing to me in the UK? Go here where Leila is offering to send one big package of quilt blocks if you mail your blocks to her with a $1 or $2 contribution.
And if you can't send me a quilt block, how about spreading the word for me to help me reach as many quilters as possible?
Really, it's in your interests to help me because the more blocks I receive, the quicker I can get the quilts together and then you won't have to read me banging on about this ;-)
