 FEB 23rd we will be drawing the name
of the person who will take home the 
Janome Sewing machine!

Some Quilts sent by RuthMary
 Over 200 quilts have been donated since I started the BASICS QUILT GATHER a year ago.
So many of you have been generous supporters of the effort, and I want to say TWO THINGS:


It's not over...  
Homeless families being
moved into Transitional Housing.


THANK YOU.  From the start for this effort with the HOUSE block quilts, 
which we raised over $30,000 for BASICS, we have also warmed the lives of 
MANY families starting over.
We've had one distribution event in November 2010, 
and we are now having our  
SECOND event
April 4th, 2011!

Next week, when we draw the winner, I will give you some stats on the generous
people who have donated...  Please keep sending your quilts.

You will be be amazed at people's generosity!
I hope you will find that you can continue to support this effort,
or a local  or a worldwide effort....

There are many.

I thank you all for your help... See what one little idea can turn into?


  1. Your one little idea...and a whole lot of love and hard work!

  2. Just so amazing accomplishment. Do you take quilt tops that need quilting and binding?

  3. Great job Victoria!! What an accomplishment in one year. I will definitely send more to you in the future.
