Last day of this crazy #hexiesonthego road trip across the south! Turns out that I had plenty of path hexie rectangles precut for basting, because I am neither fast nor diligent. 😂 We’ll be home again today, and our #quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforthesouth trip will end. I am going to take the weekend to go to a wedding and relax, then I will blog next week. Thank you all so much for your support and encouragement and prayers as we served. You all have hearts as big as Texas! 💗💗💗 #hurdlingthroughspacetime #islandtimequilting

✔Vintage ruffling foot, to make the cutest & most perfect ruffles 😍
✔Texas mug rug, made out of Bonnie & Camille, using the foundation paper piece pattern that @quietplay made to raise money for the Houston flood victims, that @sherry_bscrafts bought for me, because I don't know how to use Etsy😂

This sweet church school (CCS!!!)suffered significant damage due to flooding the weekend before school started. The entire K12 facility has relocated into an old furniture store owned by one of the granddaddies. We toured the formerly gorgeous campus this morning as we served their preschool, then met everyone else this afternoon. So many flood stories...but children tell them differently: “I got to ride in a boat!” “I got an extra month of summer vacation!” 😂😂😂 We gave every student and teacher affected by Harvey their own bit of comfort. 💗💗💗 #quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforthesouth #islandtimequilting

Do you see tiny Lori & Dennis in a sea of preschoolers? We delivered 82 quilts to these precious angels this morning! 💗💗💗 I learned that when they grow up, they want to be nurses, firemen, cheerleaders, and princesses. 😂 #quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforthesouth #islandtimequilting
Today we are serving some of the most vulnerable in the community—young children, preschoolers, and the pregnancy center. 💗💗💗 #quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforthesouth #islandtimequilting
A few more beautiful quilts we have loaded up to deliver...plus we bagged up quilts to serve 40 families that are still staying in a local hotel. 💗💗💗 #quiltsforharvey #quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforthesouth #islandtimequilting
We spent the morning counting quilts to deliver to a middle school tomorrow. Over 600 affected students, plus teachers and administrators. 💗💗💗 #quiltsforharvey #quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforthesouth #islandtimequilting
We have distributed hundreds of quilts today! What a privilege it is to serve this community. ❤️❤️❤️
Please join me in praying for Esme and her mother Marta. Marta is in hospital in Managua, Nicaragua for weeks now with a bacterial infection, and Esme is attempting to recover from Harvey flooding.

Sweet support for our #quiltsofcompassion mission from @hobbsbatting 💗💗💗Stephanie gifted us 12 queen-sized Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batts...plus I got to meet my dear friend in person.

Came home from the opening of Houston International Quilt Festival to find a box sitting on my cutting table of beautiful quilts! Thank you Chatham, Illinois #quiltsforharvey #thecalmafterthestorm #modernquiltguild #houstonstrong #quiltfest2017
Yay for leftover binding that is the exact amount needed and Crafty Tuesday time for hand stitching the binding down.

Recent acquisitions from The Children’s Cabinet Stitchers in Reno, NV for #calmafterthestorm #quiltsforharvey Thank you!
@quiltsofcompassion requested a “traveling to the TEAM” selfie, but we left before daylight and are very awkward. Here we are, in Publix parking lot in GA, hurdling through space toward Texas and the sweet people we will serve as part of the Quilts of Compassion Disaster Response Team. 💗💗💗 (We are visiting D’s parents enroute.) #quiltsofcompassion #qocdisasterresponseteam #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforthesouth

Lots of wishes are on their way!!! 5 to be exact. And 2 quilts to @quiltsofcompassion for Hurricane Harvey... And this weekend my Vegas quilts will hit the long arm... And then I'll fill the remainder of the wishes I've chosen! I love this quilt world... #quiltywishgranted #getyourquiltywishesgranted3 #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforvegas
I’ll be starting the longarming on my first charity quilt after I get home from the office tonight. I’m thinking ribbon candy in the narrow sashing and maybe @rubybluequilts orange peel method in the blocks. Any suggestions for the wide outside border?  #longarmquilting #quiltsforharvey #jukiqvp2200 #longarmlearningcurve

It needs to be pressed and then this weekend it's hitting the long arm with 4 other quilts I have ready to be finished for #quiltsforharvey #quiltsforvegas #quiltsofcomfort #quilt #rileyblake #vegasstrong
Blocks for another #quiltsforharvey quilt. A total of twenty of these, several are going to need some work to make them smaller or larger. Looking for setting advice. I can sash in black except .... none of the blacks I have matches. Maybe that won't be so obvious once all is said and done??? Or should I find another Amish type color and use that? I know some points are going to be cut off; will that be less obvious if I use black? Should I put them on point with alternating squares of another color? Or of black?

Please, give me your opinion on any or all of the above. The 20 blocks each finish at about 9 1/2". Set directly, it would finish at about 38x48, and I'd like it to be larger. @mel_is_a_swapaholic, advice??

One top put together for #quiltsforharvey. Very bad lighting in this photo; will try to get a better one tomorrow. 
I decided to set these blocks in point, added oversized setting triangles to make it easier to square up after quilting. Finished size is about 62x62.

Now to settle on a backing and get it to @linda_paints_ who has volunteered (with minimal coercion) to quilt this and one more.

This is a gift for a coworker who lost everything during Harvey when her apartment flooded after the reservoir releases. It's a quilt top I had completed a while back, and I got my long-armer friend to quilt it for me. The pattern is Scrappy Courthouse Steps by Amy Smart of @diaryofaquilter in the book Scraps, Inc.  And the back and binding is a fabulous print from @alexiamarcelleabegg in her Hatbox line for #cottonandsteel that I just happened to have in my stash! Also, the label says, "Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms." #harveyrelief #quiltsforharvey #scrapsinc #quilting

There is a step between “piece all blocks” and “pack up to send to the quilter.” It’s called “take a photo” but I forgot that step today. (I was distracted by the George Springer home run #houstonastros !!)This is a #quiltsforharvey project. Sending love to Houston. #houstonstrong.

Go to @stephkucera profile and check out the link to her blog. There you will find instructions on how to enter a drawing to WIN THIS GORGEOUS QUILT- every $10 donation you make to Red Cross gets you one entry into the drawing! It is HUGE too (88 inches square) I made a block with a blue background that was the odd man out on the front, but will possibly be with the label on the back. #hhredcrossquilt #quiltsforharvey #texasstrong #quiltersofinstagram #quiltingforcharity #fundraiserquilt #quiltingcommunityisawesome #quiltersunite

It is HUGE too (88 inches square) I made a block with a blue background that was the odd man out on the front, but will possibly be with the label on the back. #hhredcrossquilt  #quiltsforharvey  #texasstrong  #quiltersofinstagram  #quiltingforcharity  #fundraiserquilt  #quiltingcommunityisawesome  #quiltersunite 
Chris B. from Raleigh, NC, stopped by the Studio to drop off 4 quilts to be donated to hurricane victims. From baby-size to large lap size, we know her generous donation will bring smiles to the faces of the recipients.

UPDATE!  Thanks to everyone who has volunteered backing!  We are close to having what we need.  I've also learned that the #quiltsforharvey project has some extra red and blue backing they can share with us, BUT they're in need of a "trade" of some pastel colored solid backings to go with several of the tops they have.  If you've got or could order extra pastel or white backing, could you reach out to @mel_is_a_swapaholic? #heartsforussfitzgerald #heartsforussjohnsmccain

Went to Aransas Pass this weekend and Rockport to help with disaster relief after Hurricane Harvey. Not getting as much attention as Houston. Little towns that I have visited many times. Loved seeing Texans come together to help out fellow Texans. These few pics don't cover it all. Now back to working on quilts for @mel_is_a_swapaholic send quilts y'all. So much devastation. Praying for Florida too. #quiltsforharvey

Day 274/365. Since I took a four hour nap today, I didn’t think I would do much beyond making the binding for my #texasstrongquilts. But while the boys were reading, I had a second wind and finished binding the first quilt. D asked to sleep with it tonight. He has a long history of adding his love to my quilts. No reason to stop now! @quiltsofcompassion #quiltsforharvey #charityquilt #scrappyquilt #texasquilt #quiltsofinstagram #project365
All bound and ready to go to #thelinusconnection #quiltsforharvey.  I made one quilt top and a pieced back  and sent it off to @stephkucera and she ended up providing extra backing and batting to make two quilts.  She quilted them both and sent them back to me for binding. How sweet and generous was that?  Love this IG community. #quiltersofinstagram Be sure to scroll to see both quilts. Along with these two quilts, I will be sending a few others from my collection.  Sending comfort your way Texas.
