Terry's Quilt

Block donations are starting to pour in for Terry's Quilt.  Laurie from A Yankee Quilter is posting initials and locations of the block contributors as she receives them and it looks like she is getting 4-5 a day!   If you haven't heard of this project yet, click on the "Terry's Quilt" button to the right and it will give you the information.  In a nutshell, people are donating blocks that Laurie will put together into a beautiful quilt to comfort Terry and her family as they endure the crisis of her husband getting very badly hurt at work.

I actually made two blocks, but the first one did not measure up.  Literally.  The block came out short of the 9 1/2" size requested.  I also didn't like the way it looked.  Funny how when you lay your fabrics out while auditioning them that you think they will look good then you get the block together and you realize they don't work after all!  Here is my first block ....



A little too busy I think.

So here is the block I ended up sending...




If you'd like to see more blocks Laurie is posting them on Flickr.  They are beautiful!

I marked bubbles on the baby quilt last night.  I hope to get it quilted today.  I better get a move on, my neighbor is due in a week!  Then there's my fall table runner that I'd like to see finished for this year, a Christmas present, and then all the Christmas projects I want to make.......

Also, as we all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Please take a moment to click on the Breast Cancer Site button in my sidebar and help fund mammograms for women in need.  It's free and only takes a second!  We have to take care of the girls!


Until Next Time....
