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.
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!!!
