Guest Posting at Confessions Of a Fabric Addict Today

Good morning! Just popping in to let you know I am guest posting over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict today. I am thrilled to tell you that Mercyful Quilts is one of the recipients of the quilts made for the 2019 Hands2Help event hosted each year by Sarah!!

Each day this week on Sarah’s blog, a representative for the charitable organizations receiving quilts this year is posting about their group or charity. I have a post about Mercyful Quilts on her blog today. I hope you will hop over to read more about the event and if you choose to, it would be great to sign up and participate! Check back each day this week and learn more about the other wonderful groups you might want to make a quilt for.

Thanks to Sarah for hosting this amazing annual event. This is the ninth year of Hands2Help!! Amazing, right? Thus far, over 1,450 quilts have been made and donated to a variety of groups. I have participated a couple of times and it is very rewarding!

Have a great day everyone!

April One Monthly Goal

I was just over at Val’s Quilting Studio catching up on some blog reading.  I didn’t read a whole lot when we were in Vermont last week so I am a bit behind.  Val was setting her April OMG and it made me realize I have not been looking forward and setting very many specific goals.  So!  Here goes.  This month I commit to finishing the Postage Plus quilt I made for the Modern Plus Quilt book hop I participated in.  Remember I had to take out a ton of miserable quilting?   Well the plan was to go back to the long arm shop and quilt it up a few weeks ago.  Unfortunately, I was down with a virus so had to cancel the appointment and then we took off on our vacation.  I know I can easily finish this — all I need is an afternoon of quilting and some time to bind it.  Easy peasy!

I plan to donate this to a charity via the Hands 2 Help event on-going over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

I love this annual event and somehow I didn’t get involved last year.  I am happy to be back on track this year though.

 

 

Ok, you heard it here.  I am finishing this quilt and will be sending it off by the end of April!  Linking to the One Monthly Goal link up over at Elm Street Quilts.  Join in and set a goal for April – you’ll be glad you did!
