To celebrate an almost year of being the UKQU website , the Bloggerati of Blogger Central, who you all know, love and follow are going away on retreat.

Being quilters  [yep i am going too … secret location so we are not mobbed by our fans haha] we are not braving the high seas, but we are NEVER telling you where.   What goes on on retreat, stays on retreat eh Girls!

But, aside from the jollities and Gin, Vodka, Prosecco and whatever else we can fit in, we have a plan to help a Women’s Refuge, based in the North of England, but as with everything of this nature, we are not revealing the location or even the name of the Refuge.   We are each taking along a 10.5inch block of our choice, in a colour of our choice, which will be sashed together.  But it has been said that many of our lovely community might like to join in.

Do you?  Do you want to join in?     Would you like to send along a quilt block of your own choice, maybe stitch it with love and practice FMQ or just straight lines, using whatever pattern you adore and using scraps of fabrics and bits of wadding leftover from other projects?    No plan, no rules, and it could be pieced both sides too?

Please, send your beautiful blocks to address below, marked ‘Bloggerati Women’s Refuge Block’ on the outside of the envelope and please make sure they arrive no later than November 1st.

Resolution Television, 3 Woodfield House, Berkeley Business Estate, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe, DN15 8TW

We promise we will create as many quilts as we can from them whilst we are away.    We will also post lots of pictures to show you just what your Bloggerati get up to when they all get together too.   Taa!!!!

    I’m getting excited now too! As one of the bloggerati who will be helping sew this together, just wanted to make sure anyone contributing realised that we are after QAYG blocks – i.e. backed, wadded and quilted, then trimmed to 10.5 inches square.
