Another Charity Quilt Block Opportunity

The town of Bothell,WA had a major fire recently, and 17 businesses on Main Street were lost. Keepsake Cottage Fabrics is a quilt shop in Bothell that has asked for some red and white nine-patches, they use 2 1/2" squares. Unfinished blocks should be 6 1/2". We can mail them to:
Keepsake Cottage Fabrics
818 238th ST SE
Bothell, WA  98021

Or I can pick them up at Sew Day in Payson this Thursday.

If you'd like more information, Briawna @purplepoppyquilts has started a hashtag on Instagram, #quilts4mainst -- you can follow along with the progress there. These bad boys are SUPER quick and easy -- these two just took me about 10 minutes from start to finish -- starching included! :)

Charity Quilt Block Opportunity

Hello everyone!

We have another opportunity to donate a quilt block or two to a fellow guild. The Dallas Modern Quilt Guild and the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild have teamed up to help make quilts in honor of and for families and colleagues of the fallen officers in Dallas. They will also be sending support to the Baton Rouge Modern Quilt Guild.

If you would like to donate a block or two, you may make the 10 1/2" version of the heart block (LINKED HERE -- follow the 10 1/2" instructions) by Allison Harris. You may send it yourself to:
Lee Jenkins
C/O Sedona Salon
5930 Royal Lane, Suite F
Dallas, TX  75230

OR, you may bring it to our next guild meeting (August 20th!) and we will send on as many as we can collect. They are only asking for blocks at this point, so we don't need to worry about finishing these quilts.

If you have any further questions, the FWMQG listed all the pertinent information on their website HERE. They have a different address listed for a representative from their guild, but either one will work just fine, I'm just listing the one that goes to Dallas.

If you would like to check on the progress of these quilts, you may follow the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild on instagram @dallasmqg and the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild on their website, Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild, or on instagram @fortworthmqg
-- you can also follow the hashtag #quiltsforpeace

Thank you all so much for your generous hearts! I know not everyone can donate to everything, but you have all been so generous in the past and it really touches my heart.

We are asking our members to bring a quilt or two or ten to display in the show.  We need between 20 and 30 quilts, so whatever you can share will be awesome!  There are even prizes for this show - $75 first prize and $50 second prize.  The show is one day only - July 25th in Spanish Fork.  Nebo Modern Quilt Guild members do not have to pay an entry fee (yay!). 
For those of you who are willing to participate, we MUST have the quilts at our guild meeting on JULY 16th.  There will be paperwork to fill out at our guild meeting, for those who are bringing quilts.
