This is a special quilt that I am linking up to the Bloggers' Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side.
This quilt is made from the scraps of several quilters who participated in my Fat Quarter Stars Quilt Along. I just finished putting it together. It is a gift for Jovita. She is one of the block designers. As she was designing her block she found out that she was expecting twins. At the end of the quilt along, she lost them both. More of the story is HERE and HERE.
The quilt is about 52" square. I received exactly 34 squares. Adding in my 2, that gave me 36 blocks. Perfect! This is the perfect example of a scrap quilt. The blocks do not match each other. Each of us used the scraps from our own quilt. I was worried I would need to sash it to tie the blocks together, but I didn't. I just tried to balance the lighter blocks and the darker blocks. I love the way it turned out! I used wool batting. I can't wait to get it to Jovita.
Which leads me to ask. . . do any of you know Jovita personally? I have the address to her shop that she closed, but since it's closed I don't know if mail would be forwarded. I would love to put the quilt in the mail, and just email her to say that I had send her something.
If you know Jovita's address, please email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise I will email her and ask her for her address. Thanks to all those who sent blocks! I was good and added a label on the back with everyone's name.
**Update - I did get her address. Thanks to those who assisted me with that!
