So it's been a little quiet around here. Sorry about that :) I just got back from a camp with 30 teens ages 14-18 from my church
and I was so busy trying to get ready to go, I didn't get any blog posts scheduled for while I was out of cell service. But it's all good right, that is all part of summer greatness!!! Getting away from technology and enjoying the great out doors!!! And we have lot's more outdoors planned to cram in to the next month and a half, so we will see how things go around here over the next few weeks :)
But it is always great to get back to my machine :) I am working on some new things, and working on finishing up a few older things that I will be able to share soon. But for today, I just wanted to pop in an give you a final update on the Threadology Quilt Along
The Quilt Auction of mine and Pat Sloan's Threadology quilts finished this morning. And I am thrilled to report that it raised $1,437 dollars which is just so awesome!!!
Add that to the amount of $21,648.96 that was raised from donations through out the Threadology Quilt Along from all of the wonderful quilters out there that quilted along. And then don't forget to add in the $20,000 matched by Moda Fabrics
and the Fat Quarter Shop
That is a total of $43,085.96 raised to benefit Make a Wish Foundation
!!! Isn't that just incredible. In 2016 this Charity Quilt Along raised enough to make these two wishes below come true. And this year, it looks like the amount raised will grant at least 3 wishes to children and that just makes me smile :)
Isn't this industry just amazing to be a part of!!!
Happy Quilting, Indeed!!!!
