Sandy update

So far I have received tops from Valarie and Darlene, both are beautiful. Thanks so much. I will post as others arrive.

Valarie asked about backing and batting. I spent $40 for 18 yards of 90" of muslin for the backing, and that should back all I have coming so far. I get Warm and Natural 90" batting on a 40 yard roll for $150 and can get 20 lap quilts done before I have to piece ends together. Figuring 2 yards for each that will be roughly $12 per quilt. If there is anyone who doesn't have any UFO's and would like to "sponsor" a quilt for $6.00 I will gladly add their name to a label.

RE: Sandy update

It is easier for me, being Cdn. and with all that mailing a quilt from here involves, to do this. so I will gladly sponsor a quilt or two.
I have your address from the HST project. Will mail today,

RE: Sandy update

I mailed 3 tops this afternoon.


RE: Sandy update

Beverly, all done. Hopefully I will get it in the mail today or tomrrow.

RE: Sandy update

Sharon's arrived Friday (I think it was Friday).

Valarie's is quilted, but still in the frame. I'll get another loaded (and maybe quilted) tonight.

Sue and Beverly, I will keep an eye out for them. Thanks so much.

I have 2 quilted and ready to bind.

Nannykins, your letter arrived today. Thanks so much for supporting my efforts.


RE: Sandy update

Just read the information about contributing. I'd love to since I didn't have any tops to send. Please email me the postal address to send it to. No need to add my name to the label though, that would just mean a delay.

Thanks, LindaB/CA
