New BOM and a great cause

More fabulous September. Sigh. I wish September would last for 3 months.

A couple of public service announcements to share today:
First, the very talented Jackie of Canton Village Quilt Works has introduced a brand new, free Block of the Month that starts next week! Each month, over the next 12, there will be a new block tutorial and next October Jackie will have the instructions for completing your finished quilt. I'm so excited to participate.  You can read all the details here.



Have you heard about 100 Quilts for Kids?  Katie at SwimBikeQuilt along with the DC Modern Quilt Guild have put together a quilt drive generating quilts for kids in need.  Basically you make a quilt and donate it in your own community. You can then link up to the quilt drive and be eligible to win a fabulous prize. You can read more about the details here, and you can see the list of prizes and sponsors here. Wow. Talk about a win-win!

Also, Madame Samm asked me to remind anyone participating in the Wantobe Quilter campaign that there are many great prizes (sewing machines, die cut machines, etc.) yet to give and that even though your information is registered, you must leave a comment on each post to enter that particular giveaway. Good luck!

  4. The BOM is an interesting possibility. I'll have to think on it for a day or two. I like Sept also but I don't like what is coming a few months from now. We have a Quilts For Kids chapter at my local shop so they are always busy making special quilts for the kids here.

  5. At first I was like, "new Book of Mormon, what??!" and then - "oh."

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
