In 2008, my pattern club + friends dedicated some time to make quilt blocks that were designed by me, pieced together by lots of them, then sewn together with love and donated to Quilts For a Cause, Inc. The 3 quilts that were made brought a good amount of money to go for research for women's cancers. You can see the last project from start to finish by clicking on a link on the telegraph page. I am excited to say another "block party" has come to a close. It has been so much fun working with everyone in 2008/09. Below you can see the block everyone will be making...it's easy and scrappy and lots of fun to make. It's right here that you will see everyone's block and the finished quilts as well. I hope you will join us in 2011 to help make a difference. Thank you, Lynda
This is the block everyone will be making for this special "block party" for cancer. The quilt blocks will be put together on point, as you see here. Everyone that signs up will receive an information packet in the mail.
Everyone's block that is returned to me will be photographed and posted as before.
IF you don't have time, please do not sign up. Perhaps next time would be better for you...But, IF you do have the time, Welcome aboard! Hugs, Lynda
