Also, if by chance another 4-5 blocks show up, I can add one more row then...
It sure does look great though! You guys did an amazing job on the colors in the blocks! Everything looks so good together! Michele's block is the great bright red/orange/turquoise one. I think it is really cool that it stands out so nicely, as she is Susan's best friend.
I have this quilt here, from my friend Earamichia. She made it while she was staying here last summer and left it for me to hand in to BASICS. I will be taking it back into the city with me, and send it up to BASICS for our next and last distribution event, November 19th, 2012
What does that mean, last?
Only that, all the buildings of families, have all received quilts, and we have one last building to give quilts too! We've reached 700 quilts!
The important part to this is:
BASICS will continue to accept your quilts. They will hand out your quilts as they are needed. This means as families get on their feet and move on, new families will come in. As they do, they will get a quilt. They will not be organizing any more "EVENTS" as I have done with them, these past few years.http://bumblebeansbasics.com/
So, YES, you can keep sending quilts. They will continue to distribute them as new families come in.
No, They will not be photographed and displayed after the last November 19th event.
Any questions about the quilts can be directed to Robert Gonzalez.
Please visit the web page for ALL contact info. His email and address are listed there.
We've all done a great thing here! I'm very proud of the fact that we got the quilts they asked for! Best of all, you ALL helped to do that!
I THANK YOU!!!
I will continue to support the BASICS project I started, but I have turned it over to them to do with as they like. I will continue to find more ways to give back to the community... Like Susan's quilt this week, or Axel's quilt last week...
BASICS has been the best part of blogging for me... Making quilting friends that care give back, I really do, truly, appreciate the help you've given me, and all the amazing families who needed to know someone cared! You do, and did!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
It's still raining here... It was a real gusher of a day yesterday, and we drove out to long island in the craziest rain I've seen.... This rainy weather really kicks my old be-hind... All I want to do is sleep... I really am a sunshine kind of girl.
Before I lay down for a nap, I put on a pot of french onion soup, and I can tell you, the SMELL, along with a great quilt, and a cozy couch...(Sorry pooches, your being booted!) All make a for a lazy, cozy day... It's also chilly, so we may even have our first , fire in the fireplace, tonight... Yes, fall is here...
Enjoy your Saturday! Cooking anything yummy?
Care to share with me your favorite recipe?
I'm always looking for something new to cook. Tonight we're having the french onion soup with Squash and Bronzino on the grill!
