It’s Too Good to Be True!
The AQS Quilt Stars Trunk Show – Sponsored by Janome Giveaway Winner

Patricia ErslandPatricia Ersland was sitting, sewing another quilt top for Project Linus and patiently waiting for an email from her chapter leader, when she heard the “ding” signaling a new email. She could not believe her eyes. The email was from AQS saying she had won the Janome Sewing Machine Drawing! She thought this was simply too good to be true.

Patricia has been following AQS on Facebook and enjoying all the new Quilting on Together shows during sheltering in place. She saw the drawing for the Janome sewing machine and thought that if she were lucky enough to win, she would give her current machine to her sister, Rosemary, who was in need of a new machine.

Rosemary and Patricia have been sewing blankets and quilts for the charity Tarrant County Project Linus. Their chapter of just 100 volunteers sewed over 5,000 blankets for children in need in the Ft. Worth, TX area in 2019. The charity provides love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gift of new handmade blankets and quilts.

Patricia said AQS Facebook has been a great resource for learning new techniques and staying engaged during the pandemic. She said Project Linus is like a ministry for her and that her new Janome sewing machine will be put to good use to make more quilts for children in need. If you would like more information on Project Linus, you can find your local chapter at, and all of our Quilting On Together Shows can be found on QuiltTV on YouTube.
