Thank you to all who signed up over the last two weeks to make a quilt for 'A Mother's Hope'! We filled up all of the spaces plus a few!! It amazes me every time I ask for volunteers how quickly people step forward. I know that this is God's work and he sends each of our volunteers to us--the last two weeks have solidified that for me again.
The good news is that we have one more way that you can become involved in this program and it is quite easy. Last year we collected different blocks for Project HOPE and it was quite a hit! To finish off this year we will have one collection of blocks for 'A Mother's Hope'. (for more information on 'A Mother's Hope' please read this post.)
We will be collecting log cabin blocks! Here is one I made yesterday following the tutorial that Amanda Jean put together some years ago.
Here are the details of the collection:
1. Follow Amanda Jean's tutorial (click here). I used it yesterday and it works :)
2. Choose any color but make each block one color--all pink, all green, all yellow etc. This will make it easier for us to put them together into tops. Remember these quilts will be for woman so please don't use juvenile fabrics in the blocks.
3. Deadline for this block collection is November 1st. That gives you a little over a month to make one, two or ten! Trust me, they are addicting--I can't wait to make a few more this afternoon.
4. Send finished blocks to:
Margaret's Hope Chest
630 Griswold SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49507
Once again, thank you for helping us give HOPE to these mothers!
And one more thing--I finished this quilt this week. Someone donated a 'Maisy' panel and coordinating fabric this summer and when I saw it--I grabbed it! I had so much fun putting this together. It will find a new home very soon.
Amanda Jean's 'Finish it up Friday'! Have a great week!
