Welcome to the Sunshine Quilters - our website is http://webpages.charter.net/cmladronka/
Our mission is to bring sunshine into the life of our receivers.
Each member is asked to make a block for the assigned host each month. The host then assembles and donates quilts to the children's charity of their choice. Some help by making more than one block for a host or by sending other supplies to the host.
To join, post on this thread your intention to join and send an email to Char77. Rosy is the dear lady who came up with this wonderful project, we are very thankful to her for this unselfish endeavor. Please be sure to put "Sunshine Quilter" in the subject line of the email. Someone will send you directions and information.
Some of our members have just started quilting, while others have been at it for a while. We can use everyone's help. You can choose to host a month and donate to the charity of your choice as well as making blocks to send out to listed hosts.
Blocks are to be sent to the host members around the 1st of their month. If late, email the member with your intentions to send later. If you can't make a block that month, that's ok, sometimes life is too busy. Post here and perhaps someone can send extra blocks to the host that month.
The list of monthly hosts and their choice blocks (with links) is posted at the "Sunshine Quilter's website indicated above.
Not much sewing at this house in several weeks. Think I'm caught up through this month on blocks. Now have to find time to make blocks for the rest of the year.
Hope everyone is enjoying and surviving the hot, humid summer months.
I've been checking - not much conversation here. I miss the friendly "voices" Everyone OK? I got the email, unfortunately - I am not computer literate nor have time to be a "list mom" Hope someone has a happy solution. This is a great group of women with kind hearts. Cindy
I haven't had much access to internet lately, and not much sewing either I have received some great blocks, I promise to bring them to work Friday so I can properly acknowledge, and maybe figure out posting pics!
I have missed the postings also. I hope that someone steps up and volunteers to continue the group. I cannot do it at this time too many other commitments.
Um, haven't been around - from the last two postings I think an email went out about char leaving her position. I changed my email recently - will send her a PM to get the email.
Sorry if she's got to leave hostessing this.
Alison, did I send you any blocks yet? I made a whole batch and mailed out the hostesses blocks early and have a senior moment! Let me know...
I was getting stuff ready for 'quilt camp'. I hope to get back to SS blocks this week. I'll probably try to finish up what is requested for the rest of the year. Just seems easier to do when you already have stuff out.
Seems like i've done nothing but GO lately Just got home from another family weekend! Gotta love em and we do them as often as possible during the summer when there's no S*^W on the ground
I'll be working on my Sept, Oct, and Nov blocks starting next weekend. the weekend of the 24th is the AQS show that's only an hour away from home !! my guild is taking a bus over there on Friday - i can't wait!
Hope everyone is well
AQS in 1 week!! Anyone have tips for me? I was going to take a tote for my purchases, and swtich over to a very small cross-body purse. Comfy shoes, plenty of cash and maybe a camera??
Aliquilt, did you see my message above?
How about ME!
Hop in your Lear Jet and get over here
....or my broom!
It has been quiet around here. KC, sorry, no I didn't see your message before. This month I have received fabulous blocks from: Ajne, Elainetoo, Char77, Patricia, and ?? the label I attached to the blocks is missing. I have done no sewing this month at all continuing family drama boooo....and weather has been too summery and I've spent lots of quality time with grandkids, figure soon they won't want to see me. I have a date with the machine today.
Unless something happens to give me more days in a week, I'll be behind for the next couple months in doing blocks. Still trying to get the StT challenge done by the deadline.. and expect to be spending the next few months mostly outdoors.
But I will get some blocks done for the Sept-Dec ladies as soon as I can.
well, elainetoo, since you get Sept blocks, you'll have at least a month to get Oct - Dec done
I'll be sending these to you sometime this week - the colors look a bit dull, but they really are brighter.
Great Char. Thanks
Aliquilt, did you receive my blocks? I mailed them about three weeks ago. Thanks
Fayejean, I did, when I looked at my message your name, and KC's, is missing. I'm such a ditz anymore . I just got my supply list for the retreat Quilt as you go class, I may just ready some of these blocks to use in that class! Now, to make time sigghh...summer has turned spectacular the last couple days, my date with the machine turned into.......grabbing a couple projects to bring to work, to get into the ready to sew.
I read and re-read your reply, but I'm still unsure if you got blocks from me or not.
Working on KC's October and November blocks this weekend. Had a great time at the AQS show yesterday. The talent in the worldwide quilting community is just AMAZING!!

KC, I answered your PM, at least it said it was sent, saying I received yours. yes, I received yours awhile ago, your and Fayejean's name wasn't on the original post, sorry
Lost in space??? Thanks for letting me know.
Aliquilt, I hope you received my blocks.
