We dropped a jar!!! ……..actually a few jars!
The jars were all piled so nicely on my sewing table, with the envelopes that they came in with them, so I could come on today and post an update. My lovely 14 year old daughter is making her first quilt and spent some time in my sewing room yesterday. As she was trying to place her rather large quilt on the cutting board she inadvertently knocked all the blocks all over the floor. Then, trying to clean up her mess, threw away all the envelopes that were with them. So, I am posting photos of all the blocks that I have received to date. Please please. Just let me know if yours are there and if I am waiting for anymore!!!! This quilt is going to be so incredible cute!!! Stephanie, thank you so much for the help with the backing, shipping. That is very appreciated. Seeing as I live in a border town, it is often more economical for me to purchase fabric in the US in Washington, so that works out wonderfully. Thanks again. I received a collection of orphan jar blocks also, that if not used in Aryn’s quilt, can be used in another. Thank you. I included photos of those. Also, while on vacation in Oregon in August I found some wonderful bug fabric on clearance. This is going to be the border of our jar quilt. You can see a photo below. I have been frustrated with my inability to get to quilting the final steps on Braeden and Tyler’s quilts. This week is my goal! With 4 kids starting school and some bumps in the road with Andrew’s health and trying to spend some time with the kids before the weather turns bad, time slipped by. I am on track now and will show you completed photos of at least the two quilts by Monday! As soon as I figure out if I have all the jar blocks then they will start to get assembled. Then when that is at the quilting stage I hope to open another quilt soon.
Thanks for your comittment to KidsQuilts. It means alot to me.
