Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!! I'm here with an update on the Lutheran World Relief Mission Quilt Drive here at The Joyful Quilter. It's been quite some time since the last post about this project. You'll forgive me, won't you? I'm still waiting on a few of the stragglers.
While I was waiting, another project came about and then...
A week or so ago, I received the follow email:
Question-- are you still taking quilts for Lutheran World Relief? I am putting the binding on one that is the right size for you. I got to rent a longarm today and it's the first one, so it's finished, though it's no showpiece. I'm planning to post it on Monday or Tuesday and can mail it off to you after that.
This photo was attached:
Here was my response:
Pretty (RSC?) quilt, Mari! While I'm no longer actively soliciting quilts for them, I'm not opposed to taking more quilts for Lutheran World Relief. You could also send the quilt to one of the two hospice programs that I support. Both Bernie @ Mercyful Quilts or Kat @ Covered in Love (TX) would be thrilled to receive your cheerful offering. Whatever you decide is fine.
The first box on my new front porch...
... Arrived this week from Mari @ The Academic Quilter and inside the box was this lovely quilt:
She blogged about the quilt HERE.
Those were the first quilt photos in my new studio. I also tried my hand at porch swing photos like Kat @ Covered in Love...
... But found that I might need a bit more practice:
Thank you, Mari, for sharing your time, talent, and materials to bring comfort to someone in need! I appreciate your contribution to the LWR Mission Quilt Drive.
With all that's been going on in Joyful Quilterland...
... It took a few days to get around to opening the box:
The goodies above and the lovely note below were also enclosed:
Thanks for the unexpected treat, Mari! I'm particularly fond of that sweet rainbow print. Bonus points for its pretty AQUA background to go along perfectly with August's Color of the Month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge! :o))
Until next time...
Sew some love!!!
