Daniela and I have gathered 27 quilts (and counting!) to ship to Japan for Quilts for Quake Survivors via Seven Winds’ drive for comfort quilts partnering with Patchwork Tsushin. She just took these lovely photos (the batch below is from the last two hours) and it’s a marvel to see them all!

They will go out tomorrow afternoon, and Dani and I each have one or two left that we’re hoping to bind in time to add to the boxes – maybe we’ll get to 30 by the UPS deadline. HUGE thank-you to everyone who has donated fabric, pieced blocks, sashed blocks, made backs, tied, quilted, or bound one or many of these beautiful pieces!!!

Special thank-yous to Modern Domestic, Cool Cottons, Rachel and Cherri, the wonderful members of the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, and all our supporters and quilters near and far. We love you!

The next wave of QfQ quilts will go into our Etsy shop – 100% of the price of each quilt will go straight to Mercy Corps/Peace Winds Japan. Details coming soon!
