MCC Crazy Quilt Update

It has been awhile since I have done a MCC Crazy Quilt update. For those of you new to my blog, you may be asking,"What is MCC?" Every year myself and 6 other talented women make a crazy quilt that we donate to the MCC sale. MCC stands for the Mennonite Central Committee and they function much like the Red Cross. They respond to natural disasters and help people to get back on their feet again. I can't even remember how many years I have been donating crazy quilt items to the sale. We do the block in a round robin style, where usually I piece the block and mail it to the next person on our list and they work on 4 seams or open spaces and then they mail it on. We do this throughout the year and usually I pass out blocks for the next year when we are together at the auction. This year we decided to not make a whole crazy quilt but to do 12 individual wall hanging's with each representing something special about each month. The picture above is March where we did a St. Patrick's day theme. It is pretty close to done!

Here is the block representing April with an Easter theme and it is pretty close to done also!

I just pieced this block today for November and you probably guessed it is a Thanksgiving theme.

This block is for October, featuring a pumpkin theme.

Here is our September block with an apple theme. I am a little bit worried about our finishing up in time with a March deadline looming ahead of us, but we usually pull it off just fine!

I have scheduled the date for the 2012 Victorian Stitchery Retreat so if you would like to come next year, the dates are November 7-10. I'll keep you posted as I have more info!

Talk to you later,
