Everyone, you probably know what a hard time Sharon and her husband are going through as he recovers from a stroke.

The Chat Girls thought sending Sharon some signed blocks to make into a quilt would be a thoughtful and supportive gift.

We picked the Antique Tile block from Quilter's Cache, which is an easy 12" block. Please substitute white for the center so it can be signed by you, and make up the rest of the block in blue and white. Here is the link - http://quilterscache.com/A/AntiqueTileBlock.html

She just recently painted her bedroom blue, so an all blue and white quilt will look spectacular right? Besides "Blue is THE color for 2008."

If you are participating in this effort, please sign up here, then PM me when you are ready to mail your block and I will give you Sharon's address. Thanks!


Blue and White fabrics only please!

Here's a sort of rough draft with the color changed from the one on Quilter's Cache....

a rough sketch

I would LOVE to do one. Just so happen to have a stash of blue as she is in my birthday block group also. And I happen to agree that blue is the best color for anything, anytime.

Does Sharon need the work of putting it together or should some of us and they get the finished product?

Sign me up!

What a neat idea. Count me on their Hugs quilt

Shadow Dancer 12-28-2007 08:18 AM

Count me in, I have blues as she is in my birthday block groups so will get to it when I have an hour to myself. :)

bebe 12-28-2007 08:29 AM

I an not sure I will do another blk but have a suggestion. Maybe we can do 1 or either. We all know she is away from home and staying in a hotel maybe we could send gift cards or $5 to $10 in cash to help w/ her costs of food , hotel. Just a suggestion!!!!


Chele 12-28-2007 09:09 AM

I'm in! Thanks for heading it up Wendy.

sewmuch 12-28-2007 09:16 AM

I'm in too. Have blues already. Nancy :lol:

Yvonne 12-28-2007 09:20 AM

Diamonds 12-28-2007 09:35 AM

Count me in.... I think all of you are so special for doing this for her...

vicki reno 12-28-2007 09:44 AM

Count me in. If anyone can think of something else she might need, holler. I know we all want to do whatever we can to help her out.

Knot Sew 12-28-2007 10:38 AM

I have some pieces cut , I am in

ladymyste 12-28-2007 11:01 AM

Count me in...can't start it until after the 5th if that's ok?

bj 12-28-2007 11:11 AM

Count me in. I like the idea of sending her $. I know when my friend was in the hospital, the parking costs alone were awful. Let me know if that gets going too.

ccbear66 12-28-2007 12:06 PM

count me in. I won't be able to work on it until early next week but I'm definately in. I think that this is a wonderful idea.

fabricluvr 12-28-2007 01:28 PM

count me in for the block and please update here if we're going to help out a little financially. will do that, too.

Minda 12-28-2007 01:49 PM

I'm in. I'll let you know as soon as my block is finished. Are we just signing our names?

Marsha 12-28-2007 01:55 PM

count me in great idea

zyxquilts 12-28-2007 02:29 PM

I think you should do whatever you want in the center, as long as it includes your name. What does everyone else think? I was planning to draw a little cartoon with my name, it's sort of my signature for quilt blocks.

imaquilter 12-28-2007 04:49 PM

count me in.

annmarie 12-28-2007 07:14 PM

I'm in. I really like the block. And blues will be awesome.

Are we using our online name or our entire real name (she probably won't know who we are if we use our real first & last names!) How about our online name and city & state (or country 8) ???

quiltmaker101 12-28-2007 07:47 PM

I think signing your online name, city and state/country and date is good for the signature, but if you want to sign your real name, that is good also.

Anyone that wants to send along a donation of money or giftcard or whatever can do so since you will be sending it directly to Sharon.

It is so great to see all the responses to this. I am sure Sharon and Roy will be overwhelmed and cheered when the blocks start coming in!

DebJ 12-28-2007 09:16 PM

Sure, another blue block, I can do that. :D Want to show care while keeping her and hubby in prayer. So count me in too.

Joan 12-30-2007 07:41 AM

I'm going through my stash right now to pick some wonderful blue fabric. This is a wonderful idea. Keep us posted, okay?

SEVENCUBS 12-30-2007 12:21 PM

count me in.. won't be able to make one this week..next week I can :D

ceannastahr 12-30-2007 04:10 PM

I'm in for a block

Catherine 12-31-2007 04:24 PM

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!!!

nanabirdmo 01-01-2008 06:53 AM

just realized i forgot to reply. count me in.

Norah 01-01-2008 09:24 AM

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.

Catherine 01-01-2008 09:36 AM

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.

nanabirdmo 01-01-2008 09:44 AM

xyz, i can't seem to open and view the color change that you posted. i have seen the quilters cache block and it is great. but when i try to download your revised version for the color change all i get is a garbled page, must be computer speak. can you help me?

Here it is

nanabirdmo 01-01-2008 10:10 AM

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:

quiltmaker101 01-01-2008 10:59 AM

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.
