I thought I would check in here....oh, life has been a bit of a blur in MHC-land. Thanks to many organized and responsible quilters, the 'Wrapped in Hope' program is basically running itself at this point. Since we are no longer accepting new names for 2010, all I have to do is write and forward e-mails containing shipping addresses. In April we have sent out 13 birthday quilts!
I want to write out my thoughts on this project in the next several days--God is doing great things (as usual!) through this program.
I was interviewed by World magazine and an article will appear (I'm told) in the May issue and online. It will be interesting to see what the article actually says.....
Thanks to all who commented on my last post--you are very kind and your comments helped me see past my mistakes and carry onward. I started slipping a piece of scrap paper behind the head when I sewed and that has reduced further puckering. As I have added the borders the quilt has started to behave itself. I know there is a comma and a dot missing on one of the 'i's that will be corrected today. I will continue to add updates on my progress :)
Finally, I made this simple block for a special quilt. One of the ladies in our Potholder exchanges lost a baby through miscarriage a week ago. Amy, our fearless Potholder Exchange leader, organized a quilt for her. I was more than happy to add to it.
