The people who make up the quilting community, both online and in the analog world are some of the most giving, compassionate people you will come across. If ever there’s a crisis or a group in need, quilters are always willing to pool their resources in order to provide quilts to comfort those in need.
Sometimes though, it’s nice to receive something quilted just because. Last year, I was looking at all the quilts that I have (and keep making) and realized I don’t have to have a reason to gift someone something quilted. I can do it just because I want to, or because I remembered a special memory between me and that person or just because it’s Tuesday. So I sent out a few quilted items to people that were surprised and shocked and in some cases brought to tears because I thought of them for no reason.
For 2017 I am going to share some quilty love with 3 different readers of this blog at some point during the year because you deserve to open up your mailbox and receive something quilted… that makes YOU smile.
If you would like to be considered to receive a quilty package from me sometime in 2016, please leave a comment below regarding your favorite color to use in a quilt. The comments thread will be open until 12:00 AM Eastern Time on January 8. Three readers will be chosen at random and will be notified by email.
Although not required, I would love it if each of the 3 readers who are chosen, share some quilty love of their own with a reader of their blog or with someone who does not participate in the online quilting world. Let’s try to make 2017 a year where we make people smile.
