Our first-ever community charity quilt is well underway and, with the deadline of May 15 fast approaching, we wanted to send you a quick reminder that you still have time to send us your practice blocks — and we’d love to have them!
We’ve already received a number of donations from quilters like you. Take a peek below!
These submissions are from Sharon in Utah, Christine in Georgia, Donna in Minnesota and Michelle in Texas — thank you all for your contribution!
Want to join us in making this quilt?
If you made practice blocks for any of the four featured blocks in the 2017 Blazing Star Block of the Month (the Wild Goose Chase, the Aura Star, the Marquis Diamond or the Broadway Star), send ’em our way! Or, make an extra one just for our cause.
Square the block to 12.5″ and, if you like, add your initials with fabric markers or embroidery. We’ll then piece the blocks together in a simple but beautiful design and, once finished, we’ll photograph the finished quilt before donating it to Firehouse Quilts of Colorado, a cause near and dear to our hearts.
Then, send the blocks our way
Include a note telling us your name, where you’re from, and a little bit about your Block of the Month experience. Then mail your finished, squared block and your note to:
Attn: Block of the Month
999 18th St., Suite 240
Denver, CO 80202
But remember: We must receive your block by May 15, 2017 for it to be included in the quilt (that means in our hands, not post-marked, please!).
We hope you join us and our quilting community in this special project. Oh, and don’t forget to keep on the lookout for the finished quilt in June!
