@craftycop this is the best dressed #bindingbabies Today is the day. I'm starting the binding process of my first #bluerkblocks quilt.
This quilt....there are no words to describe the joy and sadness I have felt while working on it. I'm sure I can speak for everyone of you who has worked on any part of these quilts in saying that this is a labor of love made to bring comfort to a precious family who has felt the deepest loss.
So exciting! I’m attending a sew day with my guild at @sewmuchmorefabrics and look what just got loaded on the longarm!!! @debtaylor112280 husband, Gene, is getting ready to quilt it 💙 @craftycop #bluerkblocks
My heart hurts as I quilt this as I know that for it to be used something tragic will have happened. I hope whoever receives any of these quilts will feel the love ❤️ that has been poured into each and every stitch of them.
I am honored and humbled to be part of this wonderful project.
#bluerkblocks @craftycop @joycezivojnovich @laurenhigbee4 @carolgojquilts @laurawood16 These amazing ladies helped with piecing, batting, and binding, I pieced one and quilted all three. Amazing experience!
Four out of 7 rows of my #bluerkblocks quilt are complete. Not all the seams are lining up but I am going to embrace it and remind myself that every block was made by a different quilter for this cause and that of course no two blocks should be alike. Hoping to have this to @icandyquilts by tomorrow. @craftycop
I finished this #bluerkblocks quilt top while on Spring Break. Naturally I had to take it out on one of our adventures to snap a few pictures to share. The wind was blowing so the whole family was kind enough to hold it from behind to keep it from blowing away! Thank you @craftycop for letting me be part of this adventure!! Next stop @abquiltingstudio for quilting!! Stay tuned!! 😉💙
@mountie.mama and I became IG friends through @craftycop 's amazing #bluerkblocks project. Kendra is from Western Canada, but is in Ontario to visit family (who don't live super far from me). We met today and had a great time enjoying the sunshine, good food, and of course beautiful fabric! Kendra, we probably shouldn't fabric shop together TOO much since we are both fabric enablers😂. It was great meeting you and your beautiful family! It is always good to meet other quilter/law enforcement friends😊 #quiltyfriendsarebest
What a privilege it is to help with the #bluerkblocks project! @craftycop was truly inspired to start something that brings so many people together! My family and I have been sorting through the blocks admiring the skill, time, and thought that has gone into each one! Here is one example, such beautiful points! Scroll through to see the fantastic pressing job! Wow! Truly impressed!!
I'm so honored to be a part of the #bluerkblocks movement. One more quilt top and backing pieced and ready to make their way to the quilting process. I will see them back again as a single unit ready for binding. It is amazing how many hands have touched this quilt top. @craftycop this is a wonderful way to say thank you to a family that has lost a police officer in the line of duty. I hope the family will feel covered in comfort and love. Swipe to see more pics.
Here are our #bluerkblocks quilt photos. We had fun taking them together. Each of us made at least one block for the effort including little Oliver. It sparked (and continues to spark) so many great conversations about service, compassion, and reaching out to those that mourn. I involved the kids in each step of the way picking fabric, making blocks, finding a layout, a quilting pattern, and finally picking binding and thread. I have loved the hours of service we have spent together making this quilt for the family of a fallen police officer and only hope they feel our love, and the love of the others who made blocks, when they receive this quilt. The process had changed us for the better and made us so grateful for our talents and opportunities to serve. Thanks again Jessica!! @craftycop
