The Free Motion Quilting Project: MOST Amazing Present Ever

MOST Amazing Present Ever

Josh just got back from the post office with a big box marked "return" which is never really a good thing. But then I opened up the box and... oh... my... it's an incredible quilt. As you can see from this video, I'm totally overwhelmed:



This is an amazing quilt created by quilters from all over the world who first joined me for the Building Blocks Quilt Along. Many of the blocks are house blocks and most are signed on the back with sweet messages from the makers.


I honestly cannot look at this quilt without crying! I'm so greatly touched by your kindness in creating this and letting me know how much our work means to you. Many of the blocks include creative details that make each and every one super special.

Thank you so much Janet Wright for coordinating this project and putting it together! I know what a big job it must have been and I want you to know that receiving a gift like this is better than winning any award in the world. Thank you!

With love,

Leah Day

  4. I'm crying, too. What a beautiful and oh-so-appropriate tribute. You deserve it many times over. What an inspiration and help you and your family have been these last several years. If you ever decide to quit blogging and sharing videos, the quilting world will have a HUGE void to fill.

  15. Oh my goodness I'm slow to the party! I'm so happy you love it! I forgot to sign mine because I'm always in a hurry to get things into the post... Mine is the lime green house with the underwater things on it :) and it came all the way from Australia, via the UK! Just watched the vid and had a little cry too.
