Sew Some Love Sunday - Positivity QAL - The Block Drive

Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love!!  If you've visited lately, you may recall that I am doing a Block Drive for those of you who choose not to make an entire quilt for Preeti's Positivity QAL.  Since the last update, my mailbox has been a happening place.

Look and see...

Paulette @ The Way I Sew It sent seven blocks:

This set of six from Fairfaxknitter on Ravelry also arrived:

The next week...

Plynn sent this pair of blocks:

Then, much to my surprise, these six blocks arrived from Sheepless a full week ahead of their expected arrival from Canada:

This week...

I received six blocks from Mumsiemagoo:

And these two from blog reader Amanda R.:

Thank you SEW much, everyone!  I have passed your blocks along to Maggie for assembly.  She has chosen a setting and plans to make some Snowball blocks to accompany your contributions.  I'm looking forward to receiving the remaining pledged blocks AND seeing just how many quilt tops will be made.


It's not too late, if YOU would like to make blocks to donate for Mercyful Quilts.  Leave a comment below and let me know how many you would like to send.  Find Preeti's tutorial for the Simple Plus HERE.  Details for the Block Drive can be found in THIS POST.

These are the highlights...

Quilts will use both PURPLE Plus/WHITE background blocks and WHITE Plus/PURPLE background blocks are needed, as shown in the blocks received above. I had originally thought of using batik for the purple, but quality quilting cotton prints or solids will work just as well.  Any shade of purple is fine.  For the white, we will use solids, white on white, or white-based neutral prints.

Pairs of block preferred, but NOT required.

Since I'll be busy the first 2 weeks of August, I've extended the mailing deadline to August 15th.  Leave a comment below with the number of blocks you would like to pledge.  Please make sure to include your email address, if it's not attached to your Blogger account, as I'll need a way to contact you about your contribution.

Until next time...
Be SEW positive!!!


  1. After a delay in getting photos to post on IG, my 8 blocks will go in the mail today, so hopefully they will arrive by the end of the week, unless the postal service send them on an extended route.

  2. Mine are on their way....I love to see all of the blocks coming to you--you will have a quilt top in no time!

  3. As you already know, mine are en route. Didn't realize the deadline had been extended. It's all good though! Looking forward to seeing Maggie's creation from ALL of us!

  4. Ooh, I love seeing the positivity roll in!
