What's happening now...more Japan blocks

This week I recieved 3 more blocks from local Guild members. Thanks Lisa and Tracy.

I am the new Community Service person for our guild. I started this month. In the past we have made Pillowcases and collected stuffing for heart pillows for Heart patients. I thought I could inspire members to do something for the Wounded worriors. So I asked members via e-mail to make rail fence blocks. I was hoping to recieve only enough for 1 quilt or 80 blocks and I recieved over 280 Wow. We will continue to make these blocks for the rest of the year. I'm going to put these into kits for members to sew.

I brought my string spiderweb quilt to Guild too, hopefully to inspire members to make Heartstrings quilts. I havea collection of string I am willing to part with and I would like to see members interesed in using their leftovers for Charity. I am planning a quilt as you go Workshop in May. Several members seemed interested and my frinds at my local church are helping me with the date.

Keep those red and white blocks comming ladies. I will post items as I recieve them. I also need border and backing fabric to complete these quilts. I don't mind piecing the backs. Thanks so much.

  1. Hi, Liri here. I have red & white blocks ready for you but just now found out about the split rail blocks. Just so happens I have been working with patriotic fabrics recently and much left over. Would be glad to make some split rails for you if you email the size you need.
