Here are the details if you want to contribute: we are collecting pinwheel blocks in any color way in a 8.5 inch block. (I'm excited about that because it will challenge me to do something I've never done before...a pinwheel!) If you are so inclined (and I hope you are), you can also make a whole quilt in a small (and do-able) size, 24x36 inches in ANY pattern and colorway. And now for the fun part...the giveaways...(mine aren't nearly as great as Amber's, but nonetheless) 1 block will enter you 1 time, 2 blocks 2 times, etc...and a whole quilt will get you 10 entries. These are the giveaways: (1st) a cute little clutch like this made from a Keyka Lou pattern with the winners choice of colors, (2nd) a fun ruffle apron (which I designed the pattern for last year) to be sewn for the winner with their preferrence of colors, (3rd) I will make a custom mini badge album scrapbook with the winners pictures using a Shabby Princess badge album.
Who IS that cheesy chick modeling my well-worn apron?
As Amber said, it is tough to put a deadline on such a great project, but it is necessary to do so for the sake of the giveaways. So, all the blocks need to be in by May 1st. If you would like to donate to our quilts for the babies in the IMCU, please leave a comment here and I'll send you my address via e-mail (I am in Canda) or if you would rather send them to Amber in the US, e-mail her and she will forward them all on to me. Thanks again for your enthusiasm for this project, your generosity and time, it means so very much to us!
