The Call continues ...

Some beautiful blocks arrived on Monday for Marlene.

As many have you have heard, Marlene is very ill. Her condition is still serious.

I have had an overwhelming response from those wanting to contribute blocks. Honestly, that doesn't surprise me at all knowing Marlene. She is such a dear person and a wonderful friend. Here are the pictures of what has arrived so far. On left - blocks from Chookyblue, Jeanne and Quilterbee (Denise).
On right - blocks from Alex Anderson.

I am organizing a quilt for Mar. I know the holidays are a very busy time for us all, so for those that are able to participate and send blocks ...


The block pattern will be a 6" Finished Sawtooth Star (6½" unfinished) to be done in Civil War Reproduction fabrics with Shirtings or Muslin for the background. Use only 2 fabrics in the block - the Civil War print for the star center and star points and the Shirting or muslin for the background.

Do Not sign the blocks, but send a signed piece of muslin. The plan is to piece them in the backing.

If you would like to contribute a block or two, please email me and I will let you know where they should be mailed.

Hi Deb, I was so sad when I read about this on another site. I have noticed that Mar hasn't been on her blog, but with the holidays I didn't think much of it. Lori had posted it on my other site and I have been thinking about her since. I want to make a couple of blocks, but can't e-mail you at outlook express.
