As the Piece*Love*Quilt ministry nears the donation of its 500th quilt, I'm hoping to be able to create a commemorative quilt to hang in our church that will honor all the "helping hands" that have been involved in the ministry - the hands that have pieced quilts, sorted and folded fabric, built kits, sent donations of scraps, fabric, blocks, UFOs, flimsies, and finished quilts - everyone who has helped build this ministry.
To that end, I am hoping that each person who has helped will create a block to add to the quilt. Your block should have a hand on it somewhere - painted, drawn, pieced, appliqued, embroidered - however you choose to make it. Please put your name and location on the block, too. It can be any color and any size - we will make them all fit in together.
As the blocks come in, I will post pictures of them on this link so that you can see them, and will definitely post a picture of the finished quilt!
As of mid-January 2013, we have given away 426 quilts, so I think we will reach the 500 mark sometime in late April or May. So please send in your blocks soon! You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for the mailing address for your block.
Thanks for participating!!
