The blocks above are from Rhonda and the blocks below come from Pat, Kaye and Sherry.
The Ohio Star block in the photo below is from Claire's mom in Ohio and one will come soon from Claire, too. She is a cancer survivor (as are a couple others who have sent blocks). Then there are two bow tie blocks from Katherine in British Columbia and a block from Pat just east of here in Le Center, MN.
Yesterday, there was a fairly large box left on the front porch by the mailman and when I opened it I found the beautiful, plush bathtowel you see in the photo below. It's even embroidered with Emma's name. Virginia in Oregon sent this so if you are reading this please e-mail me so I can send thanks. She also sent the two 6 1/2" quilt blocks you see on the towel and she sent this lap-sized quilt top, too!!! Thank you!! I called Connie, Emma's grandma and had her come by tonight to pick up the towel and the quilt top, plus show her all the blocks that have come in so far. Deadline for me to receive the blocks is April 10th! Send me an e-mail if you need my address.
Next week, Emma and family will be taking a trip to San Diego that is granted by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. If you want to read more about Emma you can go to www.hopeforsweetemma.com/ . Thanks to all of you that have made and sent blocks and for those still on their way!
EDIT: Next post on Emma's Hope project will come next Friday, April 3rd. I am still taking blocks if you want to make one for the quilt that will offered at Silent Auction on May30th. It's a fundraiser to help with medical costs for Emma. Check out the link posted above for more info. I need to receive the blocks by April 10th. Thanks again!!
