Project Linus August Update

Share it Please

For those of you coming to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC (19th to 23rd August) don't forget to say hi to Joy and friends at the Project Linus stand.

Joy has been collecting blocks and the latest update at the Quilt Block Orphanage is as follows:

Blocks received as at 31.7.09 is 3,672.

The number of quilts completed is 162 (a lovely example is shown right).

There are then another 37 quilt tops made ready for the next stage.

She has also now set up a photo site so that people can see the quilts that have been made from the orphan blocks. If they look closely they may even recognise some of the blocks that they sent in!! Joy would love to hear from you - you can post a comment there or contact her at the email address on the newsletter which you can view using the link below.
