Not committing to anything as I have the PFTH to continue making and finishing but ... When is the due date and where would they be mailed to?

Yes, please, who do we contact. As I get to go this year, I thought maybe I should bring one along.

You can contact me, gmaann. I have delivered quilts to the Merriman House in years past. They are always SO grateful to receive them. This is just one thing we can do to thank Paducah for the marvelous hospitality they extend to us all during the AQS Quilt Show week!!

The Merriman House is a shelter for abused women and their children in the Paducah area.

Thank you, Lori for bringing this up.

Quilts can be any size - for children or women. They can be mailed to me and I wil take them to Paducah - or can be mailed to the QIAD Store in Paducah to my attention, and I will get them.

Ann, what do we do with them when we get there? I am coming and bringing mine, so I don't need to mail it.

Just ask for me when you get there - I'll be there! Or someone will find me!

Hi Ann,

I mailed my quilt yesterday (3/20) and should arrive on Monday or Tuesday (3/26 or 27). Thank you for heading up this project again this year.

Linda
Have Fun,

Thank you so much, Linda!! I will be leaving for Paducah on April 10th. There is still time for any of El's Angels to send a quilt for the Women's Shelter to me or to the store in Paducah. Just PM me if you need more info!

I really appreciate El's Angels for supporting this project. Paducah is so welcoming to us, and this is a little way we can say "Thank you".

Thank you, Oasis (Linda)!! Your quilt arrived today and it is just darling. For others: It is an I Spy quilt, with a cozy flannel backing, made from fabric that was part of a block exchange here on the forum. Bright and cheery and WONDERFUL! There is a small child at the Merryman House in Paducah who will be comforted and love this quilt!
