Last quarter saw a few more ties come in, and a few more blocks created. I’ve been working way too slowly on this project over the last couple years, so my hope is to step it up greatly this year. I’m anxious to get these next two quilts finished to donate!

We received a few more shipments of ties over the summer, and quilts #2 and #3 are well underway. We’ve received enough Christmas-themed neckties to do a dedicated Christmas quilt, so I’ll be getting that organized soon. While it probably won’t be done in time for this Christmas, I hope to have it ready for next year!

A HUGE shipment of ties arrived from a group in Idaho and Utah. They held a fundraiser to raise money to help local children at Christmas using the ties, then donated the ties to the Project to be turned into quilts to raise even more money.
Keep an eye out real soon for news on the next two quilts being finished to donate. And if you’d like to help make blocks, just give me a holler!
