a big thank you

First off, thank you so much to everyone who has been helping out making blocks for Aneela's quilt!  You guys rock!!!!!  Keep spreading the word and I'll keep trying to get back to everyone who's helping out (sorry, got to sleep and work so responses aren't always instantaneous!)

When I first put out a call for blocks I'd also mentioned that I was looking for stores that could possibly donate fabric.  Well, the quilting community is amazing so I also wanted to say a big thank you to Janice at the Fabric Stash who is sending some backing fabric my way.

I have a little business of my own and have always worked for small independent companies so I know that margins are tight and every sale is the difference between.. well you know, we've all been there, right?  I always try to give the best, friendliest, most responsive service I can, and to me with online shopping that's going to win me over every time.  What can be more amazing than reaching out and offering fabric for a project that I hope is really close to all of us.  So please, if you're going to do a little fabric shopping this weekend, show the Fabric Stash some love!  Not only is Janice helping out with this quilt for Aneela, she's also got a discount code going right now for her fabric (hoeyfan20 valid through June 21).  And her shipping rates to Canada are really good (I may have tested that!)

*** big edit: Janice has extended her Aneela Hoey sale until the 21st.  Let's clean her out y'all!!
