I see Rainbows!

The Rainbow I spy block drive has been underway for almost two weeks now and I am humbled by all the participation so far. Many of my Hope group members have made extra blocks with plans to make more. A couple of people who are in do. Good Stitches but members of other groups have made blocks too. Some of my NOVA Modern Quilt Guild members have made blocks. Even some of you, my blog readers, have made blocks.

It's extremely exciting to see this idea grow and develop and become something!

Just to give a few examples...

Theresa of Sew & Sews made these adorable blocks and binding:

Hollie of The Undercover Crafter made these blocks:

For more information about where and when to send donations check out this post for all the details.

Remember, for every 9 blocks I receive, a preemie quilt will be made by me, or with the help of a local quilter, and donated to my local NICU. The more blocks I receive, the more quilts that can be donated! Binding fabric, backing fabric, and quilt batting will also be accepted. All donated materials (including blocks) must be made from 100% natural materials.

Thank you so much for all your help so far! I can't wait to start getting some of these donations in and make the first quilt!

These are awesome! (And thanks for including my blocks.) I can't wait to see these quilts come together.
