After brainstorming about some different local charities and non profit organizations the Austin Modern Quilt Guild has made a decision about where the product of our Ty Pennington fabric challenge will be donated. We have decided to use our many beautiful blocks to make two quilts. These two quilts will be donated to two families living in North Austin whose homes burned down on August 22 of this year.
Thanks to the organizations that helped our guild to make this donation possible: Westminster Fabrics and Ty Pennington Fabrics for donating 12 yards of fabric from the stunning Impressions collection, Walker Hall Design for donating additional Pennington fabric, and The Quilt Store in Austin for making a donation as well.
Thank you to all of you in the guild that have helped by making one or
more blocks to use in these quilts.
I am very excited to start the next
step of our process; piecing the tops and backs of these two special
quilts. We should be ready to deliver them to the families very soon.
