Splinters and Threads quilt shop is collecting 6" signature blocks to make quilts for the families who lost loved ones in the Ft. Hood tragedy. They plan to give the completed quilts to the families for Christmas, so they need the blocks asap. I made four of the pictured block and am mailing them off today. If you are interested in joining this effort click on the shop name or the title of this post to connect to the details. They give a sampling of blocks that might be used, or choose your own. Hopefully they will receive so many blocks that they will be able to continue this project in January, to give quilts to those injured as well. It is one small thing we quilters can do to spread a hug and our appreciation for all the military does for us.
