Stitchgasm – Kathreen Ricketson’s Friendship Quilt Book

Another Stitchgasm from Mr X Stitch

Kathreen dropped us a line about a terrific new project she’s starting – The Friendship Quilt Book. Here’s what she had to say:

Dear fellow quilters/crafters
Your quilting story could be featured in an upcoming quilt book I am researching (not due for release until 2011). The book will touch on community and quilting and I would love to hear from you.

Please email me whipup[at] if you have ever…
1. made quilts for charity
2. organised a quilt drive for your local community/church or larger organisation
3. participated in or organised a quilt swap, (or quilt block swap), virtual quilting bee or quilt-a-long
4. belonged to an ‘in person’ quilting group where you get together regularly to quilt
5. made or organised a community quilt / friendship quilt

I would love to hear your stories — there are no boundaries on age or location — wherever you live, whoever you are — I want to hear from you. Email me telling the where and when of your quilting project and I will follow up with further questions.
Thanks so much for your help.

Kathreen, in case you didn’t know, is the mastermind behind the fantastic, and this sounds like it will be a terrific project. If you want to take part email whipup[at] and don’t forget to tell her Mr X Stitch sent you! 🙂


This post is a revision on an earlier post sent out in error. I know Beefranck and I are pretty awesome, but occasionally we make mistakes. Well, I say “we”, I mean “me”. Sorry about the confusion. 🙂 Kthxbai!
