Quilt Aid 2012

Another project! Quilt aid was developed by Australian quilters a few years ago. 12 designers (including Lynette Anderson, Natalie Lymer....) each designed a block, and money raised goes to charity. This spread to the USA and this year Europe is allowed to join the fun. My local quilt shop, the Fat Quarters is the only shop in the UK to host blocks: they have two of the blocks and shops in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany have the other 10. Each shop then designs their own finishing pattern, and you can pick from any of them. (Separate shops in the US and Australia are also hosting blocks. ) The blocks come as complete kits (threads to buy separately) and the fabrics are all Ruby from Moda.
I'm in. Check out the website to find out more! And even better - when your husband comes in and says "how much fabric do you need?" you can reply that this project is for charity!!!!
