Emma's Hope


I have a special request today. During my blogging journey I have met many wonderful bloggers and enjoyed many fun swaps. During that time I have also come to know my postlady, Connie, very well! Some of you may remember that a few weeks ago, I told you about Connie's seven year old granddaughter, Emma, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Plans are in the making for a fundraiser to help with medical costs and Connie has asked if I could collect blocks from my blogging friends that would make a really unique quilt. The finished quilt will be sold then at auction. So, if you are reading this and you would like to contribute a block, please e-mail me. The blocks need to be in the colors of red, blue, white, maybe some green and a little purple. No orange or pink. You may make 6 1/2" blocks of any design or you may make the block 12 1/2" in size (4 patch, 9 patch, anything) . I see a plan in my head, so I know it will work out when the blocks come together. For my friends who know me and wish to send a block, thanks in advance. You all have my address. For those who need my address, please go to my profile and click on my e-mail address to send a message. I need to receive the blocks by April 10th, 2009. Many thanks for any help you can offer.
Sandi
Note: The Emma's Hope pic shown above is a jpeg file and if you wish to copy and post it to your sidebar that would be great, then link back to this post. My e-mail address is stitchinglegacy @ gmail (dot) com.
And I forgot to mention that when the blocks come in and then they become a quilt top, there is a group of ladies just waiting to begin hand-quilting it!! Thanks to all of you that have said you will send blocks. It's very much appreciated!!!

I'll do one and try to see if another gal or two will do a block, also. I wish nothing but the best for Emma and will keep her in my prayers.

I posted this on my blog, too....and also asked my neighborhood gals to make some blocks. I have done several in the 6 1/2 inch size and will make more before I mail these to you. Emma is in my prayers each day.

how WONDERFUL! the only way i could join in is to make a square all by hand and i don't think my stitching would be nice enough! i am sure you will have an AWESOME response though! Thank you for being such AWESOME inspiration! :) Have a FANTASTIC day!

I finished a few blocks yesterday and am putting them in the mail to you today. Hope they'll fit into the "master plan!" lol There's a picture posted at my blog. Thanks for letting us all help. My thoughts and prayers are with little Emma and her family.
