Mrs. Claus and the quilts

Two boxes of doll quilts arrived today.  The first 15 from the quilters at HGTV Message Board.

The second box of 30 doll quilts came from one wonderful quilter, and all from her stash.  
Each one was similar in style, and so filled with color.  I ran out of floor space to show them all.  

The stack of new arrivals.
The stack----with all the doll quilts----drum roll and cymbals-----130!
To all the wonderful Mrs. Claus around the world,
Last November I never dreamed this small project would touch so many hearts.  In the grand scheme of the world , it is a small project, but has an amazing effect on each of us.  Our work to create a small doll quilt of our stashed and horded fabrics, or of our leftover blocks and strips, has become an amazing journey.  Your hand work may inspired a young girl to become a quilter one day, or to learn to sew.  She may try harder, love deeper, feel stronger because you cared.   The quilters who have participated   have learned new techniques, improved their skills, and spread their love of fiber and thread.  They seek to leave a legacy in their giving and caring.  Others have donated fabric, and batting and been such an encouragement to the entire project.   So, even though I may not know each of you, I am sending hugs and blessings to each of you.  Thank you.
And just wait till those elves hear about this!  And there are more to come...... Happy stitching.

  2. That! Is! Amazing! And I'm a little mopey here because I haven't even stepped into my sewing room for months now! I really wanted to get a few made, too, but it'll prob just have to wait till fall. Think the elves can keep up??

  5. This project has such a ripple effect on everyone involved. The magic to the child, the feelings of the parents and the good from all of the quilters. You're doing a wonderful thing here.
