Really, really, REALLY pleased.
And if you read my last blog post you'll know this is kind of a count down to 50 which (when added to the whole quilts made by others) will be enough for the home in Mexico City.
I know some of you have queried whether to continue to send me blocks. The answers is 'yes, if you want to but if you can think of better/other causes to give them to, please do'. I suppose the best analogy I can give you is when I started this project my door was wide open, now it's ajar. Once I've reached 50 (ish) quilts, any more I receive, I will assemble into quilts to go to other childrens' homes around the world, in particular one in Tanzania for deaf children but I won't be actively asking for blocks. I'm just here if you want somewhere to send unwanted 12 1/2" unfinished quilted blocks to.
Now by No. 40 I was getting towards the end of available blocks to choose from so this one is a bit mad and all over the place.
Just to add to the mad feel to it, I raw edge appliqued Soy Amada on it.
Little quilt holding up tip for you...
As you hold the quilt up, arms out stretched, bend away from the quilt, bottom in the air, wait for a waft of breeze to push the quilt away from you (check wind direction obviously before positioning yourself) and then you'll get yourself a quilt that levitates.
It's a little known art of quilt holding upping but one I am keen to share with you nonetheless.
