If you don't know Kevin, then you should!!! He's a wonderful friend to bloggers everywhere and is doing some exciting things that you don't want to miss out on :*) Check out his blog HERE - yes, Now!!! (But don't forget to come back here for the rest of the post LOL!)
So, anyway, I really want to be a part of helping Kevin's block drive succeed - because it is for him of course, but also because it is for a really wonderful cause! You can read more about the QOV drive on his blog post HERE - and find out how you can help too :)
He's already received close to 3,000 blocks at last count!!! That's enough for 98 quilts - whoohoo!!!! (and he was hoping to get enough to make 3 quilts - silly boy!!!)
He wisely chose a very simple design that even a beginner could sew up easily.... well, at least, most people could easily make this block.... there might be one quilter - who shall remain nameless - who had to pull out the ole seam ripper .... LOL!!!!
|White to white with black thread??? Ugh!!!|
That was supposed to be a yellow section.....
Sewing late at night when I'm tired is usually not a good combination for me :*) However, I persevered! And by the end of the evening, I had completed 12 blocks for Kevin's drive!!!
I am so excited to be able to pop these in the mail to him this week! :*D
I also plan to check my stash to see if I have fabrics that might help with backings and bindings. Kevin had planned to handle those things himself, but with 98 quilts to make, I think he might need us to chip in and help, don't you???
Hugs & Blessings!
