WELCOME FRIENDS OF CRAZY MOM QUILTS!!

A huge hello to those who followed the link from Crazy Mom Quilts! Amanda Jean is like the GOOGLE of online quilters and I'm like BING-the wannabe-so this is HUGE! We need a hideous amount of quilts to fulfill this need so please leave a comment letting us know you are IN!
***EDIT*** I have had these questions a few times now so I will address them here.
1. Do the quilts need to be made of squares? No, we will accept any quilts and share them with the kids-the square thing is a general theme for those who haven't started a quilt yet but I understand that many of you have quilts started or finished that you would like to donate.
2. Please send completed quilts to
Margaret's Hope Chest
630 Griswold SE
Grand Rapids, MI
49507

if you are Canadian you can send the quilts to
Margaret's Hope Chest
150A Finch Ave East
Toronto, Ontario CANADA
M2N 4R7
3. We will accept quilt tops if you are unable to finish them!

I one of those who followed the link from CMQ, and I'm totally in! I have a ton of novelty fabric, and I love to make patchworks, so this is perfect. I was especially excited to see that you will accept quilt tops to be finished, because I can whip those up in no time. I hope to have a few to send your way by the end of the month!

Thank you for responding to my question. I will have three quilt tops and some Michael Miller fabrics that I will include as well. I am also here because of the post on Crazy Mom Quilts.

Carolyn said...

I'm here from CMQ as well. I have a quilt here that I've been planning to donate once it's quilted. I'll get it quilted and off to you. Where do I send it?

Ann said...

CMQ is one of my favs! OMG, I am going to try REALLY hard to get a quilt together. I have recently started quilting, so I'm not sure if I'm quite fast enough just yet, but I'm gonna try!!! :)

I found you through CMQ as well! I am also a new quilter, so can probably only promise one, but I will do my best to get it all the way finished. I am a mother also, and applaud this amazing project!

I'm here because of crazy mom, too. I'd love to send a quilt to you. I have one that I have started and wasn't sure what to do with it when it was done....now I know. I love that they are going to kids here in Michigan (I'm in south central MI).
