Week 44 in Review (December 12-18, 2016)

This week, I received noticed that Quilt 1 of The 70273 Project has been juried into QuiltCon 2017 in Savannah, GA, so congratulations to us!

Thank you to this week’s Angels for sending financial donations:

With the blocks I received in week 44, we now have 6639 blocks, which means we’ve commemorated 6639 people. Give yourselves a hand, y’all!

Thanks for all the drop-dead gorgeous cards, too. You’ve really brightened my daze.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled holiday chaos!

    incredible news about the quilt competition — also, the number of blocks is amazing… just 388 more to go and we’ll have completed 10 percent … Merry Christmas everyone, Joyeux Noël à tous, feliz Navidad a todos — hope that covers everyone… looking forward to 2017… <3
