News and Links – for you!

I have a few things to share with you today.

First, I contributed to a collaborative book – Modern Blocks!

I submitted 2 blocks, and they were both included.  This book will be available via Stash books this fall, and I’m looking forward to the advance copy coming later this summer!


Next, while at Market, I was invited to chat with Annie Smith from Quilting Stash!

The podcast is available today, go listen and learn how you can win a copy of Modern Basics!


Finally, I want to share about Quilts Recover

From  Cheryl :


Earthquakes, tornados, fires, and more. The world is full of disaster news these days. The images and stories are gut wrenching. People are having to build their lives over, starting with less than they ever had.  Quilts Recover is about providing just one bit of comfort during that rebuilding process. Quilts Recover is quilters providing finished quilts to communities ravaged by disaster.

As of today, Quilts Recover is accepting donations of unused quilts to donate to communities where the rebuilding process is occurring. We accept functional quilts only – no comforters, bedding, duvets, or blankets. All quilts must qualify as lap/nap or bed quilts. All quilts must be complete – no unquilted tops please. Quilts will then be labelled and donated, through registered charitable organizations on site, to target communities.

The first community target is Slave Lake, Alberta, Canada. Earlier this month, May, a wildfire swept through the town of about 7000 people. Nearly half the homes and businesses were destroyed, utterly consumed by the fire. People are only returning to their homes now. Quilts Recover will provide as many quilts as possible to families rebuilding their lives in Slave Lake.

I need to go look through my pile of quilts and see which I can part with.

Do you have one to spare?

Blessings ~ Amy

    The new block book looks wonderful, something different from the regular types of blocks. I wish I had quilts to donate, I am still learning and not great at finishing, but hoping to get better this year, so I can start making charity quilts.
