Here’s another opportunity to help the Quilted in Honor initiative! And a fun one, too! This one will have you “hopping” all through the vendors’ area at AQS QuiltWeek® -Des Moines on October 2 – 5, 2013.
You can make a beautiful quilt using fabric by Island Batik and thread by Aurifil™ that will benefit the Quilted in Honor project. Every purchase of Quilted in Honor fabrics helps to support Operation Homefront!
Each participating vendor will be offering a kit for one of the blocks of the quilt. At each of the participating vendors’ booths, you will also see a quilt made with all twelve of the blocks that will be found in the Booth Hop. Each vendor will show the quilt finished in their unique style with their own finishing pattern, as well – so there will also be 12 different “finishing kits” available.
It’s easy to participate! Here’s all you need to do:
• Pick up an Official Booth Hop Card at participating vendors.
• Stop at each of the participating vendors (look for one block kit and the vendor’s unique finishing kit in each booth).
• Purchase all 12 kits (one from each booth), turn in your completed card, and you could be a winner of a basket of fabric.
• The drawing is at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 5, in Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center.
