Every quilt we’ve made for the past 16 years has been made with one of the Quilters’ Dream Battings. We’re not spokespeople for them. We just love their products. They have also been exceptionally generous to our students. If you have taken a class that involves quilting from us, you have probably received numerous batting samples of their various battings because they have cheerfully responded to every request we’ve made to share their products with our students.
As our business turns 16 next month, it seemed the perfect number of quilts to donate to a worthy cause and also to free up space in our studio for new quilts to be made. So we made good on our promise to contribute a big pile of quilts, 16 in fact, to Quilters’ Dream’s Hopes and Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS.
Some of these quilts are samples for fabric lines, others from books or quilts that we used for teaching but have been replaced by newer examples with current fabrics. So here’s our challenge to you: isn’t there a UFO lying around your sewing room that you could finish up for this worthy cause? Just think of how much space it might free up for those other projects waiting in the wings. Making a quilt feels good. Giving a quilt feels even better. Feel free to share your quilt donations on the Modern Quilt Studio Facebook page. We’d love to see them!
