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.

Hello, I am Luisa from Italy. I have made 3 tops with Quilt of Valour mystery patterns. They doesn't want the tops because there are some flower. I wrote to Gina but she didn't answwer. do you want? tops are only to quilt- only one has corners to add. I have "finished" fabrics- can you write me? usually I send tops tto Robert Morford. but now I can send some for you- I wait your news

I saw the name Harrell on your signature block. My maiden name is Harrell, from a Harrell family of eastern VA and NC.

The other point I have in common with you is my quilting obsession.
