First shipment!

We just received our first package of scraps today!

I'm very excited to have gotten some beautiful colors and lots of different fabrics, so just playing with these in different combinations proves how beautifully diverse our quilt will be once more people contribute.

So excited!

If any of you would like to contribute some scraps to our project, please send an email to

Quilt Pattern

We have finally decided on a pattern for the quilt. It is relatively basic and combines elements of both the Celtic tree and some simple knotwork borders. Color choices are still in the air, but those will depend highly on the materials we receive and the amounts of each.

We've also decided to create the front of the quilt first, and then continue to create the reverse color scheme on the back. This will allow the project to continue, while still giving us solid goals.

We have received a few monetary donations and are awaiting come donations of fabric from several people who have written for the address. At some point we hope to have enough funding to be able to take on a PO box so that we can post the address continually, but for safety reasons we don't want to post our home address online.

All in all, things are going quite well and feedback has been overwhelmingly positive!

Please help us spread the word about the project, and if you have a website where you would like to post a blog or ad a link back to us, please let us know so we can add you to our Supporter's page.

Truly Blessed

The outpouring of support today alone has been tremendous, and I have to express my heartfelt thanks to all of you who helped promote the project!

We have received several mails and donations to help get us started and many of you are helping to spread the word through your journals, facebook pages and blogs.

I am truly looking forward to getting started on this project and cannot wait for things to start arriving so that I can begin piecing things together and building a list of those who have helped!

Thank you all again, so very much.

This really is what the spirit of Unity is all about!
