What goes around, comes around. I have been very fortunate to be a part of the project coordinated by @craftycop to make Quilts for the families of fallen police officers. @craftycop posts pictures of the blocks sent to her and progress pics of tops being put together. I had never seen a picture of any of my blocks in the finished quilt tops UNTIL I received the kit to piece and quilt one of these quilts. There was one of my blocks! It came back to me and now proudly displays the label that will be on this quilt made possible by @craftycop and countless quilters. To be part of this wonderful project, please follow @craftycop on Instagram. #bluerkblocks#patchworkbypaula .net
I was contacted by a client whose sister had died suddenly before being able to finish Quilts she had started for her sisters. I pieced her finished blocks together and then quilted it with hearts. I think finishing another's work is something we can do as quilters to bring some comfort to families left behind. #quiltsarelove#patchworkbypaula .net
Starting the layout of blocks for a #bluerkblocks quilt that will be given to the family of a fallen police officer. This is a project started by @craftycop, a Police officer/Quilter, with the help of her many IG followers. To get involved, follow @craftycop or search #bluerkblocks to see what quilters can accomplish when they adopt such a worthwhile cause. The finished Quilt will be seven rows. Only have four on my design wall now because as some of you know - at 4ft 11" - this is as high as I can reach😄💙💙💙❤️❤️❤️ #bluerkblocks
My Happy Mail Box arrived today👍. I have followed/participated in this project almost from the very beginning. Two or three times a day I check IG for new posts from @craftycop. Today I find it very difficult to even describe the feeling that comes over you when you open the box with all those squares and suddenly this project is SO REAL and the goal to provide comfort to a family of a fallen police officer is overwhelming. On a lighter note, I have looked at all of the pics posted and have never found one of my blocks. I found one today in this stack!😄. Guess which block the label will be on😄. Love to all, especially Jessica, who makes this dream a reality💙💙💙💙 #bluerkblocks .
Just a little(?) chain piecing tonight with #bluerkblocks . They go really fast this way. Jessica wondered if we'd ever get to 100 quilts. Let's show her that's NO PROBLEM!!😄👍👍 #bluerkblocks #@craftycop
