Hi everyone! When I first started out with Stash Builder Box, I knew my box wanted to have a cause. My life verse is “Do not withhold good from whom it is due when it is your power to act.” - Proverbs 3:27. With quilting, so far in my life, I’ve been able to use quilts as a way to spread “good”, if you will, and I know many, many quilters who feel the same way!
When I got a college graduation announcement in the mail from a friend, she mentioned that she was taking donations and asking for supplies as she was headed to Fiji for 6 weeks over the summer. I instantly messaged her and asked if she needed quilts. Turns out, quilts in Fiji are in super high demand and they LOVE blankets. So! I went to town. I hopped on Instagram and put out some feelers for some donations and help making blankets. In an instant, people stepped up to help and it was truly amazing.
This was Mid-March.
Over the course of the next few weeks time, my friend finalized her deadline & gave us a final deadline of the last week of May. We just came up to that deadline and it has been AMAZING. Not only do we have 15 quilts of all sizes to send with her to Fiji, but I also have over a dozen quilt tops in my basement. These tops are going to be finished and sent to our next organization (stay tuned for an announcement of who we selected!) and we’ll work with them for June, July and August.
There have been SO many helping hands that have made, shipped and finished quilts for donating! There have been so many long hours, late nights and many sacrifices people have made to get these quilts finished in time to hit this deadline. It’s been truly a blessing! If you played a part in making these quilts, thank you from the bottom of my heart! Your efforts will not go unnoticed and you will truly make a difference in the life of the children in Fiji.
Thanks to all of you, our donation stack was impressive! I wanted a chance to showcase all of the wonderful hard work that went into each and every quilt, so here are some photos of every quilt being donated to Fiji.
Thank you to everyone that purchased our box in May or joined our Heart Builders team in March, April or May. This could not have been accomplished without the work of SO many, so thank you to all!
