There was all kind of good news in Week 51 . . .
You guessed it – The Engineer and I were out of town on family business, but we did manage to get in three days atop our mountain in western NC.
My mother, class of 1945, was elected to the Fayette County High School Hall of Fame. I am so proud of her.
Good news from our Chantal Baquin: If you are going to l’ Aiguille en Fête ” in Paris, this week end, please stop at FRANCE PATCHWORK ‘ s booth and drop off your blocks ! Thank you very warmly, Catherine Bonte and France Patchwork to be our ” mailbox”.
There’s a new way to make quilts in town: Middlings were introduced. (And let me tell you, the response has been nothing short of phenomenal! If you haven’t started yours yet, I have to ask: What are you waiting for?)
Our monthly mixer for February was released, and this month – thanks to the efforts of Nancy Carroll – there’s a French version, too. If you’re fluent in English and another language and would be willing to translate the monthly prompts, please let me know. (Remember to tag me and use #the70273projectmonthlymixer when posting your photos.)
Quilt #55 assigned to Margaret Andrews!
Quilt #22 from Catherine Symchych and her middle school students at Snowy Range Academy landed in my arms, and she is a real beaut. Catherine and I took photos, and I’ll share those with you real soon. At one point, Catherine thought they were finished with the quilt, but her students weren’t satisfied, so they sat down to make more blocks, winding up with a total of 129 blocks! Thank you Catherine and Middle Schoolers!
Other blocks received were from:
Diane Dresdner (VA/USA)
Pat McGregor (MN/USA)
Linda Moore TX/USA:
Betty Czerwinski (NJ/USA)
Carol Esch (NJ/USA)
Cheryl Kopeck (NC/USA)
Danny Wood (NY/USA)
Joan Katz (CT/USA)
Kellye Rose (MN/USA)
blocks in Quilt 22
bringing our block total to . . . 7652! Isn’t that wonderful? Y’all keep sewing, and we’ll keep growing.
Come on back around in a few hours for our final block count update of the day as we celebrate our first anniversary, giving us the current total of how many blocks have been made in our first year. I’ll be here waiting for you.
