blocks made by me



Well, I guess I can show these blocks now since three of them have already appeared in John'aLee's Blog. I thought I had taken a picture of my blocks before I sent them to her but could not find it so I snagged this one from her Scrappy Appleyard blog.

Her daughter, Tory, lost her fiance who was a soldier in Afghanistan three weeks before their wedding day. I think he was only 21.  She asked for 8 1/2 inch star blocks in red, white and blue in Minnock and Simpson shades.  I dug out some prairie paisley charms I had and this is what I made.  She is making a total of three quilts so I am sure she would appreciate any additional stars anyone would like to send. Here is a link to the original request.

Earlier, Sara Fielke of The Last Piece blog asked for blocks to make quilts for a fellow quilter. She asked for Kaffe Fassett blocks. Here are mine: 

Both ladies provided such wonderful instructions on what they were looking for. I hope my blocks meet their needs.  Sarah's request came while I was cutting out a quilt she had just published. Serendipity or maybe that is Sarahdipity.

It feels really good to give, doesn't it?

Bless your generous heart! It does feel great when you can give in such a meaningful way. :o) I just visited the blog on the star blocks and told her I could do some blocks if she still needs more. (She had requested them by the end of October, so we'll see.) Thank you for letting us know about her project, and thank you for your kind comments on my blog!

I, too, made blocks for Sarah Fielke's project and hope at some point she posts a pic. I used that idea to make a baby quilt -- I'll be binding it this week. Your blocks are beautiful.
