Almost Winners and a Heart Block
We do have winners in our last quilt along drawing! But I am not going to be able to post them until this afternoon. Sorry. Grabbing pictures off flickr always takes longer than I think it should!
I did want to share this with you though —
Someone’s comment to my post about Jovita’s babies reminded me of a something we do in one of my guilds. I designed a paper pieced heart block. When someone has a tragedy in the family, we each make a heart block for her.
I thought some of you might want to do this for Jovita. I took my scraps from my quilt along blocks. If you would like to participate, it would be fun to do the same. It will be completely scrappy, but sometimes that’s how we like quilts! I wanted to make Jovita a small quilt with the heart blocks alternating with a nine patch. You can make a heart block, or a nine patch block or one of each. Here are my blocks.
The blocks finish 6″ so right now they measure 6 1/2.”
Be sure to click “none” on scaling when you print it so it measures 6 1/2″ from the outside lines. Feel free to use this block for any non-profit uses.
The nine patch block is made from 4 – 2 1/2″ background squares and 5 – 2 1/2″ color squares.
I don’t want to drag this out, but I want to give those overseas time to get me a block if they want. I also better get my taxes done. So the deadline to get me blocks will be:
If you would like to be part of this quilt for Jovita, mail your block(s) to me at Konda Luckau, 665 E 400 S, Payson, UT 84651 USA. I need them by April 15th.
Gotta run! We have lots of winners that will be posted this afternoon! Thanks!
