    Hi Wendy, Count me in. I only caught up with this plan today so it looks like I can still make one. I'm sure I have lots of blues & whites to choose something pretty. I'll get to it tonight after work. Thanks for thinking of it. Very nice!

    Wow! Ceanna: Your block is lovely, as usual. I love the embroidery in the center block. I went to Joann's today and bought a Quilt Label book of iron-on transfers because I don't write very neatly anymore...arthritis kinda took away the neatness. Oh! well, I'll do my best and thank you for showing us how the BEST can look. Thanks for sharing.

    Here is my block for Sharon & Roy. I just need to get a permanent marker to sign it. Which permanent markers work best for writing on material?

    hi pam, love your block.
    i would suggest that you try to use an archivally safe permanent marker.
    best in the long run.

    Pam, pretty block. Sharon and Roy are going to love it. Thanks for sharing. I've never used the permanent ink pens either so can't give you any advise. I could probably USE some advise on them, however. :roll:

    There are permanent fabric markers at the sewing shops. Sharpies apparently are not recommended for fabrics, so I did not use my blue one. I wanted to!!!

    Someone better send Sharon a box of Kleenex with their block. She is really gonna cry when she sees all these beautiful blocks we have made for her! :wink:

    you guys are probably thinking i sound like a broken record but this is a big deal. we spend a lot of money on our fabric and spend many hours creating our lovely quilts.
    if a pen is used which has ink that contains acid, the acid will over time literally eat thru the fabric. take the time to make sure you have an archivally safe marker.

    Count me in. I've been away from the forum for such a long time and was not aware of the dh stroke. I'll make my block today. Thanks for the wonderful, thoughtful idea. Sharon will cherish us all.

    Wendy: Here is another block I made for MimiSharon as requested. You were worried that there might not be enough blocks for the quilt. If you need more, let me know. I will put the label on the 2 blocks I'm sending and get them in the mail today.

    Just put mine in the mail. But I forgot to take a picture first, I was so anxious to get it headed on its way :) The blocks posted are so pretty. She is going to have a ball looking at them (through tears I'm sure). I also realize I forgot to sign it. I did attach my name on a sticky so she'll know who it's from. Duh! My brain needs a jumpstart!

    All these blocks are sooooooo pretty. If y'all would like to make and send me a block I'd take them. :roll: :roll: :lol: :lol: I think MimiSharon is going to have a gorgeous quilt when she puts all of these lovely blocks together. My DH mailed my blocks to Sharon this afternoon.

    Norah!! Love your block. The quilting in the center really isso neat.

    I finally bit the bullet and decided what to do with my centers...I used a flower motif I made with my embroidery machine. Over the years I've made many of these little motifs and getting to use them on this project was fun. I think I'll make a whole quilt using thes motifs.

    Thanks for sharing your block, Norah. Good job and it's gorgeous.

    Nah, that's OK! You're only spreading the good advice! :D
    I appreciate it.

    Sharon, sorry I did not get to you sooner. I myself just went through breast surgery so did not know if I would be up to it, but I am fine fine fine, so I will do a block this comming week and get it to you. I too hope you can get enough blocks. If we make more then one should we sign just the one or both? And Hi everyone, hope you all had wonderful holidays!
