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 DEADLINE TO RECEIVE BLOCKS WILL BE DECEMBER 31, 2008.
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.
