Need Your Help!

Ami has created a challenge section on the AAQI website and there's a page set aside for the quilts submitted as part of this Priority Hope Challenge!

If you registered and sent a quilt to AAQI as part of Tonya's challenge, will you please leave a comment below with your quilt's name/registration number (or e-mail me directly at julieATseftonDOTinfo)? [Tonya is super busy right now, so I'm volunteering to create a list of quilts so our challenge page can be updated.]

THANK YOU (again and again and again).

Better Late Than Never

Woohoo, finally finished with my Priority Hope quilt. Rather embarassing that I failed the deadline on my own challenge, but even so I did get it done. I just need to get it washed, registered and in the mail. (Along with Clare's).

Ya'all did great and this was a lot of fun. Thanks to all who participated.

Sparkle of Hope

I call this one 'Sparkle of Hope' because the background fabric has glitter infused into it and then it inspired me to add some rhinestones. I think it will find a happy home.

Another challenge quilt to share

"Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.  You wait and watch and work; you don't give up."  (Anne Lamott in Bird by Bird:  Some Instructions on Writing and Life)

Quilt Pixie Donna set up an online fabric swap recently.  I was paired with Claire in California (she is not yet a blogger).  I fell in love with one small piece she sent me, and this quilt grew from that scrap and others she shared, plus a bit of my own stash ... and when I told Claire about the quilt and the quote I plan to put on the back (see above), she replied that she had used the fabric to make a celebratory wall quilt for her sister after the completion of cancer chemo... Gwen Marston styled stars with fussy cut cranes in the star centers.  I got goosebumps, to say the least.

So, here is my next Priority Hope Challenge Quilt, The Dawn Will Come, ready for registration after the AAQI folks return from Houston.


p.s.  And I incorporated the dragonfly fabric because it tied in so perfectly with the thoughts of hope ~

 "Dragonflies are reminders that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways, if we choose to do so.  "Let there be light" is the divine prompting us to use the creative imagination as a force within your life.  They help you to see through your illusions and allow your own light to shine in a new vision."
