Have you ever donated a quilt just because you were asked. Or were you moved to be a part of something bigger then you. Or the cause just gave you a heartache.
Looking at pictures of donated quilts encourages me to continue donating.
I love the feeling knowing they will be loved.
Above quilt. Donated raffle quilt for Arizona Quilters Hall of Fame.
First, for auction, donated quilt in 1984. It's tiny. Center applique could be 10" to 12". Too long ago to remember.
More then 150 Quilts of Valor donated completely finished. We did have about 250 students from East Hampton High School help with these quilts. What a blast we had. Pictures on a pervious
More to Follow.
Once in a lifetime you get to make a special quilt for a special someone. Along the way you realize you need some help to accomplish your goals. This was the case with this quilt. My sisters and I needed help with fabric, ideas, names of new, not yet published, and older fabric lines and names of designers past and present. Just to mention a few. We want to thank and acknowledge everyone who help us reach our goal.
Our heartfelt thank you to all the Moda staff, Susan Ache and Moda fabric designers who donated fabric from their personal stash.
We are forever grateful, Andee, Candee, Cheryl Ann and Mary Andra

We had so much fin making this one. We wished that Little Black Dress fabric by Moda was available when we designed this one. We used Rite Dye to dye all the white and black fabric so it became cream and black.
"1859 Captain Asah Coleman"
This quilt is a reproduction of a quilt made in 1859 by Jane Cooper Coleman for your husband Asah during the Civil War. The quilt was entered in a contest in St. Louis in 1859 and hung in St. Louis in 1901. Also hung in Chicago in 1931. The Chicago label is still on the quilt.
We are so excited and thankful to be included in Quiltmaker's 100 Block Vol. #8. We are block #706 page 24. You can even see us on the cover. Mary Andra is one of four sisters who own Sisters' Quilting Trunk. She does all the hand applique'. Mary Andra feels doing one block is the easiest part of designing a quilt.
At times putting it into a quilt is not so easy. She did come up with a quilt design suggestion for this block. We hope you enjoy it.
Don't forget to go here to see all the designers who have a block in this issue and are participating in the blog hop. There are always wonderful blocks in every issue of Quiltmaker, so don't forget to check them out too.
Please don't forget to show us what you did with your blocks. We would love to see them.
Quiltmaker is generously giving away one 100 Blocks Vol #8 magazine to every blog participating. We will also be giving one away and a surprise too.
