What are the chances I’d open two envelopes from Scotland as I check in blocks today? (I should’ve bought a lottery ticket!)
Sam Bell sent these beautiful blocks – one in each size – and a copy of the Spring 2017 issue of The Quilter magazine, the periodical of The Quilters’ Guild of the British Isles because on page 9 is a short article about The 70273 Project and the good work U.K. Ambassadors Mary Turner, Margaret Jackson, and Chrissy Fitzgerald are doing along with other members of the Coxhoe Quilters.
Envelope #400 is filled with many blocks and this delightful note from Petrina Menzies, a Development Worker at The Session House & Open Learning Centre in Perthshire . . .
Enclosed are the blocks made from a very small group of ladies in Perthshire Scotland. Working on the blocks gave the ladies time to give thoughts and prayer to something that we had all forgotten. Thank you to you for spreading the word about your wonderful project.
And there were a few blocks made by people who wish to remain anonymous.
Big thanks to all the people in Scotland who’ve made blocks and who will make and send blocks. We still have many people to commemorate, though, so keep stitching, y’all.
