Blogging from A-Z • Q

This letter can be challenging.  This year I'm LUCKY - the very nature of the Bead-It-Forward project is to take those squares and assemble them onto QUILTS!


A few months ago I put the call out to quilt shops across New England for some miniature blank quilts.  I'm so grateful that Knit One, Quilt Two of West Boylston, Massachusetts answered the call! 

Last time I spoke with Melissa, the owner, she said she had 25 ready to go and more on the way!



Everyone's contribution really makes a difference.  From the people who created patterns, to the business and individuals who contributed, to the folks who kindly included ribbons, cards and other craft supplies in their packages, to friends and family that helped process and log the squares, to the hundreds of beaders from all over the world who contributed over 1200 squares...the project wouldn't be possible without you all!!  I am so excited to bring the final products to auction off at Bead Fest Philadelphia this August and see how big a donation we can make to our beneficiaries!

  4. Hi Amy,
    I wish I could be at Bead Fest in August to see all the amazing quilts that will be auctioned off for a great cause. Without people willing to contribute time and money to research for a cure to breast cancer, a cure maybe even a longer time to come.
