Sew Some Love Sunday - PositivityQAL - The Block Drive Quilters Knitting Group Quilt Top


Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love!!  As you know, my mailbox was a busy place all during the month of July.  This week I got a BIG surprise when...

... Our Positivity Piecing Fairy brought out the second PositivityQAL Block Drive quilt top to start off Show and Tell at my Weekly Quilt Group on Thursday:

 

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, Maggie!!!

She warned me that this top wouldn't come together as quickly as the first.  Technically, she were correct.  From a stack of blocks to a completed quilt in ONE WEEK is a delay that I can totally deal with!

If you are new here at The Joyful Quilter, I'm running a Positivity Block Drive in conjunction with the PositivityQAL being hosted by Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts.  The resulting quilts will benefit the Mercyful Quilts program spearheaded by Bernie @ Needle & Foot Fine Fabrics.

There is still time for YOU to send a block (or two or 12!!)  We are using the Basic Plus tutorial found HERE.  I've extended the mailing deadline to the middle of August.  Leave a comment below if you would like to join the community effort.  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.

The Block Drive 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 am SEW thrilled with this collaborative quilt top...

I'm sharing with some of my favorite Link Parties, including:

  16. Hum, what a great way to use up some of my purples. Now to see if I can get some made. My Positivity Quilt just finished being quilted. Still need some binding made and applied but hopefully it will be done soon. Hum, is it ok if the purple has a bits of other colors in it? Would you like some made with the Red Hats on purple background? Do you need some extra purple sent for binding? Let me know.
