    This is a new thread (and I hope I'm putting it in the right spot) for those in the October Secret Pal Swap who want to create a block for the swap's friend Marty who is very ill right now.

    Here's what we have agreed on so far. We will do a version of the quilt as you go quilt.
    Each person will make a 12" block quilted onto a 14" square background that has green tones in it.
    Any design is just fine, but Lori tells us that Marty loves hummingbirds and flowers, so if you want to incorporate that into the design, that's fine.
    All finished blocks should be sent to Lori by October 26th. That gives us three weeks to do a block.
    Please PM Lori for her address.
    You may sign the block on the front or the back - your choice.
    Please sign in here so we know how many are participating.
    Thanks!

    I will do a block - I have some beautiful green batiks in the closet that will be perfect. I'll get it done after work this evening.

    will somebody post a picture with measurements shown once they are done with a square?

    I'm a visual person.

    As far as the batting goes, is there a specific type?

    OK mine is ready and will go out in the morning to Lori, I hope this one will be acceptable, I kind of got a bit carried away on the quilting, but for some reason I wanted it to have a lot of texture.

    Krystyna I've been under the weather lately, but doing a little better. Let me get my SP's gift made first and if things are still going well I should be able to do a block also.

    Here is the block I am working on for Marty. I chose a printed block reflecting warmth and comfort for Marty. I am handquilting portions of the block and will do some machine quilting in the frame area.

    Excellent choice. Beautiful block, makes you wish you could go sit in that chair and enjoy the flowers and the beautiful day. Of course I am incredibly partial to gardens. This quilt is going to be absolutely beautiful!!

    Beautiful KOKO! I cannot wait to see what the completed quilt will look like, What I did on the back of mine is stitched in 'Flowers for Marty' and my my name before putting the block together, it isn't really pretty but it looks better then if I tried to use a marker ;)
