Pickup Parking Quilt

Jacquie over at Tall Grass Prairie Studio has done it again. I love Jacquie's style and was super excited to see what she'd create with Pooches and Pickups. I sent her some FQs so she could play with them and show off what she's created. And she's got a full FQ set to giveaway to one of her readers! Head over there to register to win. BUT don't go until you read my gushing post over her quilt and what she's doing with it...

Meet Jacquie's Pickup Parking (from Pooches and Pickups) quilt. Gasp, right? Jacquie is not only a supremely talented lady, I'm just so deeply touched with how generous she is. She created this incredibly fun twin sized quilt that any litte boy would love. And she's donating the quilt to Basics in NYC which is a program that collects quilts for homeless families. It simply makes my heart sing to know Jacquie's quilt is going to a little boy who really needs something special.



Is that not simply one of the cutest things you've ever seen? I love everything about it. The parking spots, the license plate, the quilting!!!

So NOW you can scoot over to Tall Grass Prairie Studio to register to win a FQ set of Pooches and Pickups and read how the quilt came to be. It's such a sweet story.

Jacquie: Thank you so much for taking my fabric and turning it into such an amazing creation and truly kind gift. The quilt is so creative, fun and some little boy is just going to squeal with delight when he gets it. You're simply wonderful!

It's pretty easy to create with fabric that inspires! Bruno, my black lab, appreciated the fabric too. He's looking totally chic with his new pooches kerchief!
Another fabric hit!! Keep em' coming, Laurie!

It is such a fulfilling feeling to give away one of your creations...and to someone as deserving as a child that needs warmth and comfort makes it even more sweet. The little guy who gets this quilt is very lucky, indeed. Congrats on the new fabric...love it!
