We have more news on the Katrina Quilts As I am sure everyone knows Annie of Annies Crazy World has meticulously assembled the Katrina fundraiser quilts. She handed them over to me the other night. Annie is literally saying – “There you are ” We are a little behind schedule but I think the survivors of hurricane Katrina will need help for a long time yet.
Annie designed the packaging for the quilts as they will travel to the US to be sold on Ebay. If you want to know how it was done Annie has blogged the process
As Quilts they are amazingly difficult to photograph. Perhaps it is that in life they have such presence and when I look at them on screen I feel that they are not well represented. I have had two attempts at photographing them and anticipate a third because I live in hope that I can capture their life.
Of course individual blocks are in the All that Jazz Gallery but it is in how they sit together that the quilts really take on a presence.
We are behind schedule as I had hoped to have the quilts sold by now but everything has been done properly and I am believer in a good job rather than a rushed job. The quilts have been valued by an accredited assessor and they were valued at $3,000, $1,800 and $1,200 dollars (Australian) respectively. This documentation will accompany the quilts and who ever buys them will receive them with the quilt. Hopefully we will be able to raise a decent sum for the hurricane survivors.
During the assembly of All that jazz #1 quilt Annie blogged in detail the assembly. For anyone who wants to know about assembling a crazy quilt here is a list of blog posts that give a detailed blow by blow demonstration on how it was done.
