Fabric treat and a quilt for Japan

Yesterday after work I came home to this sweet little fabric treat in the mail…what a way to make my day! I’m totally psyched about it and can’t stop looking at its cuteness! Kirsten N., all the way from Australia, made this iPhone sleeve as a thank you for my last fabric giveaway. A huge perk about this sleeve is now I have an adequate excuse to finally get an iPhone! (the phone in the picture actually belongs to my husband ;-p) If it weren’t for Kirsten I’d still be living in the stone age, so thank you for that as well!

Not to change the subject so suddenly, but I wanted to give you all a heads up about my next project. I’m on a mission this weekend to finish a quilt for Japan. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the recent earthquake, tsunami and potential nuclear disaster in Japan; well, here’s a small way you can help AND get a quilt in the process. The company I work for is having a fundraiser where they match donations 100% and all proceeds go towards disaster relief in Japan. My mission this weekend is to finish a quilt and then auction it off via a blog post. I will ship the quilt to the highest bidder, and then have my work match your donation 100%.

I will be using the Sunkissed collection by Moda. Please stay tuned for my quilt for Japan so you can participate in my little fund raising auction. Every bit helps. Also, I will be posting Facebook updates this weekend as I make the quilt, so if you haven’t already, you can ‘Like’ my Facebook page by clicking the link to the right :).

Thanks for stopping by…and happy Friday! Wish me luck on my mission… 🙂

    I really love the cell phone holder! And it is such a nice idea to support Japan 🙂 I'll be keeping an eye out…
