A Pile and A Prayer

Hello Everyone,

When I found out my blogging friend Amy's husband had passed, I was so saddened. I immediately sent her a card and began to send my best thoughts and prayers for her and her daughter, Anabel.

Then my other blogging friend, Sarah, put out a call to help in making a quilt for Amy and Anabel by sending a block or two.


Because Amy just adores Kaffe Fassett fabrics, like myself, we were asked to use them along with white. This is the pile of scraps I began with for the block.


Then cut them into various size 2 inch strips....


and pieced them into a block like this one and also...


this one.


Here they are together. Right now they are winging their way to Sarah so they can be pieced together into one or two quilts for Amy and Anabel.

If you know Amy and Anabel and would like to help out, just click here read about it and then send Sarah an e-mail.

All my love and BIG hugs went into these blocks and will be part of quilts that will wrap them in love for a long time to come.

Until Next Time...

Your blocks look lovely. I'm mailing mine today. I wish we were making these under happier circumstances...

The blocks are gorgeous. I know your friend and her daughter will not help but feel the love that you and others feel for them. What a beautiful gift and thank you for sharing with us...

I'm so sorry about this sad news. Surely your quilts will cheer them and help them know they are loved. As someone recently said, THIS is what quilt making is all about!

Beautiful blocks, Jackie! Mine are on their way to Sarah as well. It's great to see such an outpouring of love & support for Amy. Aren't quilters just the most beautiful & generous community of people?
