This community has kindly commissioned some quilts.  This is an update diary to let you all know where each of them stands.

The quilt for Michelle Caudle is done.  I’ve been in contact with the reporter who broke the story about her and will send the quilt to him to deliver.

Here is the quilt, “Flowers for Michelle”:


BFSkinner’s quilt has been quilted and is only awaiting its binding and buttons.  Here it is:


It has plenty of pooties, as promised.  And it has a yummy backing fabric, lotus leaves by Kaffe Fassett:


That yummy backing fabric was used in a series of log cabin blocks for Kitsap River’s quilt.  Here is her quilt in draft (notice that there are blanks – we still need 13 messages!):


Here is a close up of one block:


….and another:


I am still collecting messages for Frederick Clarkson’s quilt.  We need thirteen more for him, as well.

If you have a message for Kitsap River or Frederick Clarkson, would you please leave it in the comments?

Many thanks!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
