Thank you!!

We as bloggers are known for our kindness, our caring, our supporting, our praying and our thoughtfulness. Many of you know Mel from Mel’s Own Place. Many of you know the story of her wonderful Sister-in-Law, Lissa ( her story here) A young mother with 3 children who has been in the ICU Unit of the hospital for 7 months. Through prayers for her and the doctors and caretakers, Lissa is still with us. Let’s, do something wonderful for her.

Let’s make her a quilt!!

Yes, a quilt in her favorite colors.

Green, purple and cream.

This quilt will show her not only her family cares but there are so many of us here that also care.
On behalf of Mel and her family I would like to coordinate this project.

I am asking for 4-Patches. One or more; made with 5 inch squares.

Lissa colors: Purple, Green, Cream. Think; calm, serene.

Purples - Please stay away from purples with too much red

Greens - Not too much blue or yellow

Creams - On the yellow side

Donations for batting.

Also, please send one 5 inch CREAM square as a siggy block. Add your name, where you live and any words of love, faith and encouragement. She will love these to read.

Block ideas.

4 Patches, One color


The blocks can be mailed to me and I will send you my address when you comment.
Blocks will be due Saturday September 4th.

A Finish!!

Yes we have a finish in our house!! Oh, yes not mine, but Maggie’s!!
She made little T a quilt. All boy!! Such fun for a house that has all girls. We found this great Japanese vehicle fabric and she matched it up with red and blue. For the back, Merryville Town by Michael Miller.
The back looks like an I spy quilt.

Reports from Mom are that Little T loves Aunt Maggie’s Quilt!
