I love happy stories like this. There is just so much feel good in them that it makes my heart happy. Nowadays it seems a person is always wrong no matter their opinion and all we hear about is the bad. You are are proof that a lot of good is still happening too. This story is definitely filled with good!
“There it is! All finished and ready for delivery! I can kind of understand why the person gave up on it…I have had more fun with other quilts I’ve made!! There won’t be a live auction this year but instead people can buy it from the ‘store’. I have to set the price…I’m thinking $1000…does that sound fair to you? It’s hard to see the quilting but my quilter did like a fan pattern so the back would look pretty!“
Does anyone recognize this? It’s a Harriet’s Legacy quilt. This was sent to me in pieces about mid March. Here’s Rosie showing off the UFO.
This is how the bag looked when I got it in the mail. It was just a jumbled mess of pieces that really needed some sorting…and counting and more cutting.
I didn’t know what the pieces were for until I saw this pattern cover.
I loved the quilt but knew I’d never get to it so I found a blog reader, LaNan, and she offered to finish it up….
It looks MARVELOUS!!
How beautiful. I know the original package came from Omaha….it came to me and then to LaNan. I looked back on the blog post and no name that I found was on the package. So blog reader in Omaha who sent this…thank you so much. Your donation is really off to do some good in the world.
LaNan is an Iowa gal and the quilt is being donated to Shetek Lutheran Ministries. I think they have a bible camp for kids. What an awesome cause. My kids all have great memories for going to bible camp and being we were sending several kids each year, the kids often benefited from a partial scholarship.
Who knows what will happen with camps this year…but I’m confident things will pass and camps will be back in the years to come.
THANKS so much whoever donated this..and to LaNan…and her longarmer who did great work!! What a joy filled blog post!!
As always, if you have a UFO project like this that you want gone, let me know. There are always people and causes out there that need them. I’d love to help you connect your UFO project with a quilter with a cause.
