The Quilted Life with Carolyn — Charitable giving


QM Collaboration Reminder 0

Hello everyone! Or should I say, “hello quilting buddies!”?

I’m here to remind you of our Quilter’s Mart Collaboration project. It’s been a few weeks since the notice went out, and we’re super excited for the squares that are rolling in.

We want to donate as many Quilter’s Mart quilts as possible, and we need your help!

If you are scratching your head, wondering what on earth I’m talking about, here’s a refresher: LINK

Nancy the Quilting Goddess and myself are teaming up with YOU, our Quilter’s Mart community, to create quilts to donate. This collaboration will be featured on the blog as it takes shape, but we can’t be successful without your participation.

If you can spare a few hours for us, please create a 12 inch square block and send them to me. It can be absolutely anything you want, as long as it is 12 inches - no requirements for colors, shapes, patterns, prints… nothing! Full creative license!

Infinite creative options mean that you may not be able to restrict yourself to just one square - Don’t worry! You can send as many as you’d like. And if you do make more than one, they don’t have to match each other. We’ll collect all the squares and sort them and mix them into multiple quilts.

When you’re done, please send to:

Quilter’s Mart Collaboration Project

PO Box 11773

Portland, OR 97211


We are accepting contributions for the next couple months. When we close the project, we’ll make sure to let you know.

Thank you, everyone! Can’t wait to see what you make and work on this collaboration with you!

Quilting Collaborations - Episode 5 2

Guys guys guys! I AM SO EXCITED. Are you ready to freak out with me?

I thought the collaboration series was over after my last post. But no. No no no! How did I not see it before?!

YOU and I need to collaborate. It’s so obvious now! Who better to collaborate with than YOU, my dear readers!

So here’s what I’m thinking… You all create some 12 inch square blocks and send them to me. Then Nancy the Quilting Goddess and I will piece them together, quilt them, share the results with you, and then donate them to a local charity here in Portland, OR, USA in the name of the Quilter’s Mart community.

Are you in? If you are, please create your 12 inch square blocks and ship them to:

Quilter’s Mart Collaboration Project

PO Box 11773

Portland, OR 97211


I cannot wait to see what you all create! This is, quite possibly, the most exciting quilting project I’ve ever been a part of, and I hope you all feel the same!
