Rainbow I Spy Block Drive

Due to the large number of emails I've received from fellow quilters interested in participating in the Rainbow I Spy preemie quilts I am doing with the Hope group of do. Good Stitches, I am officially starting a block drive!

I'm not sure how to insert the html code so that you can easily make the above picture a button (if you know I'd love some help) but there it is in all its rainbow glory. For all the details on the pattern and fabrics to use, check out the post below or click this link for the original Rainbow I Spy post.

Blocks, quilt tops, and finished quilts will be accepted! Your donations are greatly appreciated! 

Please be sure to construct your blocks, tops, or quilts with all natural materials. Quilts will be donated to the Inova Fairfax Hospital for Children NICU.

Where to mail your blocks: 

Natalie Weaver
6759 Rockledge Place
Centreville, VA 20121

Submission Dates: I'm breaking these up a bit so you have plenty of time and opportunities to get your blocks in.You can, of course, submit blocks for more than one deadline.

Round 1: August 30th
Round 2: September 30th
Round 3: October 30th

Working Sessions
Anyone willing is welcome to join me in constructing finished quilts. I will announce the working session date(s) at a later time. We will have a working session after every submission deadline so that the work is a little more spread out.

Spread the Word
It would mean so much to me if you could spread the word about this block drive. Blog about it. Tell your friends. Get your guild involved. The more the merrier!

Share Your Work
I would love it if you added your photos to the Threaded Mess flickr group. If you do not have a flickr group you can always email me the photos or send me a link to where they are posted on the web. With your permission I will share the links and/or photos on this blog throughout the block drive.

Thank You!

Thank you so much for your interest in helping out with this special project!  

Happy Quilting

Update: Here are some smaller versions of the above picture. You can also grab these from my flickr photostream:
