Update on Emma's Hope quilt........

All the blocks are in except one and it should be here any day. This is a possible lay-out of the blocks. All the 12 1/2" blocks will be bordered by the 6 1/2" blocks. I have extra 6 1/2" blocks that are currently filling spots where 12 1/2" blocks can go and I'll adjust when I receive the last block or blocks.

There will actually be two quilts. The one above is the quilt that will be auctioned. The one below will be a small wall quilt for Emma and her family. There are reasons why I chose which blocks went to which quilt and when it's all finished I'll explain why and post the names of who made which block.
In the meantime, I took a photo of each person's blocks with the envelope it came in so that I have that as reference for who made what block. I was hoping to get this all sewn together before I go to Iowa next week, but I don't think I will have time. I may get some of it done on Thursday of this week but that's the only day I'll have that I can work on it. When I get back, I can get it sewn together and then send it on to the church ladies who will hand quilt it. I believe they said they need a week. The fundraiser is set for May 30th.

You did an awesome job putting those blocks together. The layout is great Sandi, and hopefully it will raise a lot of money for Emma's care. I am humbled to be a part of such a great bunch of quilters.
