Sew Some Love Sunday {on Monday} - LWR - Enhancements and T#18


Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  Alas, two other posts ate up my computer time yesterday.  Normally, my Lutheran World Relief posts are written a little ahead of time and scheduled for a midnight release.  Things have been busy around here and that just didn't happen this week, so this post is late.

Here's the BIG news...

Adjusted T#12 and T# 15 are back from being stretched and tugged or tightened up:

Here's a closer look at the border (added to the top and bottom) on T#12:

T#15, on the other hand, had a bit of a nip and tuck:

For some reason, I had trouble finding the proper angle for a photo.  I'm hoping that Libby approves of the adjustments:

In appreciation...

Sending a special thank you out to Maggie!  Your enhancement effort was SEW helpful in making these quilt tops fit more closely within the LWR parameters.  I appreciate your time, talent, and the materials that you contributed.  (I certainly didn't have any appropriate fabrics in my stash to do that work for either of these!)

Apologies to Paulette...

While T#12 was off being stretched, she passed along another lovely quilt top.  Unfortunately, I didn't start the post right when it arrived and neglected to check my notes prior to releasing the last Quilt Top post.  Please accept my sincere apologies, Paulette.  The story follows.

You've got mail...

Not to worry, I did let Paulette know that her package had arrived!  This was the condition of the box that arrived:

Needless to say, I was a bit unnerved by the damage.  Fortunately, the quilt top was sealed up tight in a plastic bag:

Whew!  It arrived none the worse for wear:

I present Quilt Top #18:

Thank you, Paulette!!  This quilt top is SEW appreciated.  You did a lovely job assembling these donated blocks!  One of our quilters will finish it into a quilt when its number comes up.

Until next time...
Sew locally, QUILT globally!!!


  1. Oh, I love the top/bottom borders on T#12! Glad you and the crew made it work. No apologies necessary, but yikes, that hole in the box could've done some damage! You know, I had initially poly-bagged the top for mailing, but then found out that the Regional box would be $2 cheaper to mail, so I just put the whole thing, bag and all, into the box. Good thing it had that extra bag for protection! I had debated about whether to take it out of the bag before boxing. Anyway, nice work on all the quilts!

  2. Glad you were able to make mine work!

  3. Both quilt tops are so lovely. I am so glad the quilt top was not damaged in shipping. Have a lovely week and happy quilting

  4. They are beautiful. You are a miracle worker!

  5. Great job on the quilts and so happy that quilt in the crumpled box arrived safely. You do wonder sometimes when they look like that upon arrival.

  6. Getting the LWR quilts to juuuust the right size is a challenge! These two are just lovely :)

  7. Gorgeous quilt tops! Great job on the borders - they look great. Sometimes one does wonder what happens to the mail - it must have battles getting through the system. ;) ~Jeanne

  8. So many pretty quilts in this post. I love them all and I love the generosity of your friends!

  9. These are some great quilts! What a privilege to be a part of this!
