    I will also make a Block. This is a very good idea. She will have fun sewing each block together to make that special quilt. I know I would..I wouldn't consider it work..I would consider it a joy to have been so loved!!!

    Maybe someone whould finish the qilt and send it to her complete. She has enough on her plate as it is. Also I would like to make a block. How many do we need? I have a batting to contribute, if someone wants to take up the job.

    I'm hearing all kinds of different things here. Are we to make this block and send it to her, or is someone collecting them all first? Somebody tell me what I do with the block when finished and the time line to have it done and sent.

    thanks moompi, you are a doll baby :wink: :!: :!: :!: :!:
    my computer is such an antique and my grandkids have put so much really important (not) stuff on it that i am lucky if i don't crash before being able to get anything done at all. i am on satelite, for which i pay dearly because i am in the boonies, and it is still pretty slow.
    maybe someday i can get a new computer and dsl, (and by that time my children will have found a lovely facility for me :P and i won't have to worry about computers. :roll:

    My math skills are terrible. I have edited this from earlier, so please re-read it if you checked it before!

    As it stands right now, everyone who has signed up to make and send a block to Sharon = 28! 28 12 inch blocks! Keep signing up! Only about 8 have confirmed making one and sending it off yet.

    I think Sharon should be able to make a King size quilt, and pillow shams from what we are sending! That would be just perfect! I think we can stop at 100, as long as everyone who has committed really does send a block in. Please let me know if you can't. I am hoping she will have all the blocks by mid-January. I know everyone has been real busy with the holidays. but it only took about 30 minutes to cut and piece this very simple block together.

    Thank you everyone who signed up! I am just waiting to hear from those of you who have not yet PMd me for her address.

    This will really be a warm and loving way for her to start 2008 - with proof of how much she is loved and supported by her friends here on the quiltingboard.

    Yeah!!!

    I love your blocks. She is going to have such a great quilt. I really like to see how everyone can take the same block pattern with the same color family but how they all turn out so different.

    Hi Quiltmaker101 (Wendy) :
    Count me in, I'll make a block for MimiSharon. I have some beautiful blue fabric that will work great.

    I hope hubby is doing better and that Mimi is holding up OK. The stress of a sick loved one can be just as horrible as what the sick person is going through. Will keep her in my prayers.

    As suggested, when I have the block completed I will PM you. Thanks for getting this going.

    Feathers.

    Love your block, CC. This quilt is going to be enormous. She'll have enough blocks to make quilts for every bed in the house with all of us wanting to be involved. Isn't that great?

    We need a lot more blocks! Please sign up and make one for Sharon! If you want to make two that is great also!

    I edited my post from earlier today. My math skills stink. Didn't get the math gene!

    Hi Quiltmaker (Wendy):
    I am attaching my block for MimiSharon. Will you please PM me with her address so I can mail it to her tomorrow? Thanks. If it turns out you need more blocks, let me know and I'll make a couple more like this one that I'm posting.
