Hello Everyone,

Cindy sent me a box of left over pieces from previous projects. I've been sorting them and deciding what to do with them. Here is our first charity quilt of the year.

The colors are white tone on tone. And bright, happy childrens fabrics. The quilt is roughly 55" x 55".

9-PATCH blocks- we need 12 more blocks. The blocks are 6.5" unfinished, using 2.5" squares.

LOL, I'm glad I looked here before I made my block. I was going to make more, as we needed just a few more to round it all out and found that Denise made them. I'll see what I have for the inner solid border.

Hi Ladies,

So glad to see this quilt getting finished. 

We do need backing and binding still, and probably some $$ to help with batting. 

Don't forget everyone, to PLEASE send a few dollars to help with shipping. Thank you!

Connie, do you want $$ so you can find the right fabric for the binding, or the fabric sent to you?  Would 1/2 yard be enough if you want the fabric?  I'll send either - which ever you'd like.

Woops, I forgot Connie was quilting this one.  So, Connie, please let me know if you want $$ or fabric for the binding.  Thanks.

WOW, that was FAST!!!

GEESH, I messed up big time Ladies. I thought we only needed 12 of the strip sets, but it looks like we actually need 24. How did I do that??!  (I know how I did it... I forgot to count the vertical ones!! LOL )

Soooo, we need 12 more strip sets, can anyone do some? I'll make a few.

Three strip blocks will be on their way to you tomorrow, Midge.  I'm also sending 1/2 yard of fabric for the binding along.  Will you please pass it on to Connie when you send her the top?  There are a few extra 2.5" squares and a few more $$ to help with shipping cost.  Thanks for all you do!

I finally got this top pieced!!! And I will go to the post office after work tomorrow!!
Life got in the way of getting this one pieced, but now it is ready to go!
I'm sorry it took so very long for me to do my part, but hopefully Connie will be quicker than I was!
Fall is just around the corner, at least I. Wisconsin it is!!
