    I saw a post here on the board asking for our help making 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" blocks. I sent a pm to this nice lady who is a cancer servivor. She is making a quilt for breast cancer and making strides. She is using a lot of her own stash but was asking for our help in making these squares. There were no material or color requirements but I chose pink for obvious reasons. I think that the post was deleted due to her being new on the forum. But I know that this is a wonderful cause and we have so many kind-hearted people here that could help her. So I guess I am asking you to take a look at my squares (please concider making one or two yourself for this cause) and please send me a pm if you would like her info and I would be glad to route you to her! Thanks for taking a peak! :)

    when do they need to be done and do they have to be the patterns that you used? I have some pink fabric if I could send it to her.

    It's me who is making the quilt and I allowed myself plenty of time for this project. I am also doing signature blocks and I should have those by the walk on October 22nd 2011 and plan on working on the quilt till around August next year, enough time to get it to a longarm quilter and back to raffle off for next years walk to help raise monies and awareness.

    Thank you and you're welcome! Good luck with the quilt. I think you'll find you will have more than enough squares and will be assembling it before you know it!
