People can be extraordinarily generous.
Sue of From the Magpie’s Nest recently asked if I’d like a quilt top she’d made, for the benefit of Ovarian Cancer. It’s the most gorgeous thing!
As you can see, it’s predominantly teal, so perfect for the purpose, and that lovely dark orange flying geese border really makes it pop. She’s called it Taking Flight.
Well, I said yes, of course. She’s even sent matching fabric to make the binding once I have it quilted. I’m more than happy to provide batting, backing and quilting, particularly as it kept the postage costs down to merely ridiculous instead of outrageous!
My quilting skills are nowhere near as advanced as her son James’, who’s a professional, but I’ll do a simple but respectable job and do justice to her lovely creation.
So the Trudy Crowley Foundation are receiving a double whammy this year, which I feel they totally deserve after the fundraising desert of the past couple of years.
Thank you, Sue. You’re a star, and I’m sending you a big teal hug!
How kind! And such a beautiful quilt!
Sue is a very kind and generous person, so this is just like her. I do love the design; it’s simple, but beautiful.
How utterly wonderful 😍
Wonderful quilt and wonderful donor!
Yes absolutely 💝
Wow what a generous gift
Amazing, isn’t it?
So kind of her! I´m sending you two blocks at the end of this week!
Very, very kind. And thank you for the blocks, I shall look out for them.
Stunning, and all those flying geese
I know! It’s really spectacular!
beautiful quilt, beautiful gift.
And one that has so much added value because of the cause it supports.
Two very special quilters here. One that has something to give and one that has the perfect place for it to go.That’s how the world should work all the time. You are both amazingly kind and generous. You will make short work of it and add to her beautiful work.
Two quilters working together to make a difference. Quilters are better than most at coming together to make, whether it’s a quilt or a difference.
Right you are.
A beautiful quilt and such agenerous contribution to your work.
Sue is a wonderful quilter and a stellar human being. I was blown away when she offered this for the cause.
It’s lovely! I really like the contrast between teal and orange.
So do I! I’d planned a teal and orange quilt for the future, but might leave making it for a while, so there aren’t too many teal and orange quilts out there!
