Thank you + Giveaway Info

I have had an amazing number of quilters contact me about wanting to contribute a block or two (or six!) for Trudy’s Arse Kicking quilt for Errick. THANK YOU! Quilters are a generous bunch, I am finding out.

Reading all of the emails and messages you sent had my eyes watering several times yesterday. This is going to be a beautiful quilt, in many ways. I can only hope that we can convey to Errick, through this quilt, the number of people rooting for/praying for/thinking about him as he prepares for the battle of his life.

As of this morning, I have 36 people listed as wanting to help and I already got my first blocks in the mail (thanks, Melanie!). I even made a couple more blocks today because I’m excited to see it come together.

Once you make your block, and if you feel inclined, snap a picture and join the flickr group, Trudy’s Arse Kicking Quilt, then add your photo to the pool.

Blocks So Far - These look great!

Look at the blocks that have been made and added so far. These look great!

Several of you have offered to support this cause in more ways than donating a block. I am floored by people’s generosity.

Jamie (of Maricopa Fabrics), a fellow DMQG‘er, has offered a bit of her fabric to use for the backing.

ETA: Laura Kay, another DMQG‘er, owns a wonderful quilt shop, Happiness Is . . . Quilting!, in McKinney, Texas. She has offered to help me with the batting for the quilt.

And then there are those that have offered up goodies to use as prizes for the giveaway for everyone who contributes a block.

Kelly has very generously offered a Tula Pink Neptune honey bun to use as a prize.

Christine (sowandsewdoll) has generously offered a couple more prizes for our giveaway (on top of making 22 blocks for Errick’s quilt!).

To help kick Trudy's arse

ETA: Christine (sowandsewdoll) has created this fantastic hexagon kit, which includes:

  • thread
  • needles
  • cute little embroidery scissors
  • 1 in. hexagon papers
  • a freebie from the hexagon paper company
  • 2 1/2 inch fussy cut squares, one of each print from Heather Ross’ Spoonflower collection
  • a sparkly container to put it all in

To help kick Trudy's arse

and she has donated these lovely Heather Ross fat quarters: gnomes, dots and horses!

And then, I’m donating a small FQ bundle from Tula’s Nest line (you can pick from this stack).

If we end up with a lot more people (say, 75 total) that contribute a block, I will add another prize to the giveaway. (A lot more prizes have been added, by so many generous quilters!)

So, if you hate cancer, want to help contribute to Errick‘s quilt, and want a chance to win some Tula gorgeous fabric, send me an email ( wilke [at] lulubloom [dot] com ) and I will send you my address.

Thank you again, everyone. I cannot wait to see this come together. And most importantly, I cannot wait to get this made-with-love quilt to Errick so it can help him kick Trudy’s arse.
