  • Quilts for May

    Posted on May 31st, 2009 Nana No comments

    I’ve got 13 quilts so far for May.  I have also 3 flannel tops ready to go onto the backing and batting and then quilt.  I also have 2 cotton tops ready to go onto the batting and batting.


  • Thank you!

    The mail lady has been busy the last week bringing us lots of goodies!  Boxes of quilts have arrived from Birdie in Md and from Bev in AK.  We also received a box full of quilt tops from Lynda in VA, and Ellen in TX and her 92 year old mother in Fla teamed up to send us a beautiful quilt.  We appreciate all of the hard work from everyone.  The quilts are all fantastic!   Thank you so much!

    I have noticed that several new people have joined lately.  Please don’t be shy—-introduce yourselves to us and let us know what you are working on. —-Ellen

    A box arrived in the mail from Shari in Montana.  Shari sent two large snuggly quilts and also some nice fabric that we will be able to use for backs on more quilts!  Thank you so much, Shari!

    We just delivered a load of donations to Rose Bud Reservation in South Dakota.  Besides quilts, there were lots of boxes of clothing, a bed, a large donation of baby formula, some cleaning supplies and lots of other things.  Thank you to everyone for helping us to help the people on the reservation.

    I hope that all of you mothers had a great Mother’s Day yesterday.  It was a beautiful sunny day here.  We had the sheep shearer come and shear the two sheep.  I’m sure that Mama Sheep thought that was a great Mother’s Day gift!  I think that they were happy to take off their thick wool coats in the sun.  In the afternoon I did some quilting and enjoyed the sunshine a bit. ——Ellen

    There are several groups either around the country or online that are supporting Wrap Them in Love with your quilts.  Please click on comments to this post and tell everyone about your group.  Where are you located? How did you get started?  How long have you been quilting for Wrap’em? Tell us something about your members.  Do you have any upcoming events planned?  Anything else you can think of to share?

    Notice that we now have three pages here.  There is this home page, an “about” page and a “quilt blocks” page.  I’ll be adding more hints and blocks there.  Eventually, I’d like to add a page about Wrap’em Groups, so I will copy and paste your comments from this post to that page in the future.  You can also email me with any special information that you’d like me to add there. ——-Ellen

  • Quilts, Quilts, Quilts!

    Geri from the Arlington group just stopped by with 13 quilts that the group turned in when they met last weekend.  She said they are all working hard to have lots more for us next month when they get together.  Besides making new quilts, these ladies have also been working hard to help finish some of the donated quilt tops that we have.  Way to go, ladies!!

    Yesterday the mail lady came driving up to the door honking and honking!  I ran out to see what she had for me.  She had her little red jeep full of big boxes!  She asked me if it is Christmas or something!  There were three big boxes of quilts that arrived.  The first was from Bev in Alaska.  She quilted eight quilts that were pieced b y JoAnn.  Next was a box of 5 quilts from Donna in Indiana.  Those quilts were from Donna and Cindy C. The third box was 4 quilts from Jayne in Michigan!  They are all such wonderful snuggly quilts!  Thank you to all of you!

    Now I have a mountain of quilts to take pictures of and update the gallery on our website.  My “quilt holder” isn’t available for a few days, so as soon as I get some help to do that, I’ll get the pictures taken, edited and uploaded.  Don’t forget about the galleries from previous years too.  There are so many quilt ideas for you there.  And, you can’t help but smile and feel good when you see all of the quilts that have been lovingly donated by all of you.

    Happy Quilting, Everyone!  ——-Ellen

  • Quilts from Texas

    The mail lady brought us a box of 5 wonderful large quilts from Tammy  in Texas.  It is always nice to have quilts that are a little larger since kids come in all sizes!  Thank you so much, Tammy —–Ellen
