    Block of Quilt I'm going to Donate

    My niece passed away a couple of weeks ago at the age of 13. I decided I was going to make a couple of quilts to donate to the childrens hospital that helped her thru her cancer. I have tons of UFO's and these blocks are probably 20+ years old but it seemed like a good reason to finish this up. Interestingly the blocks finish at 13" and I first found 13 blocks and then found another 13. Even though 13 is suppose to be a unlucky number this looks like this was meant to be.

    It is so hard to lose a young family member. This is a good way to acknowledge her life. Prayers for you and yours.

    So sorry. Its hard when they die so young. I think that "13" thing is so interesting, something we as humans are left to wonder about. God Bless you and your family. Post when you have finished the project.

    The block is lovely and will make beautiful quilts! 13 has always been my lucky # and hopefully it will be for the recipients of your quilts!

    What a great idea to use your blocks in memory of your niece. Bless her heart. Those are very soothing colors and will bring someone comfort.
