Good morning everyone! I am more alert this morning and want to Thank Katy for posting the names. I can't imagine what I would have written in my Dazen state. I am thrilled with all the blocks that came my way. This will definitely make a waonderful quilt or table topper. You will each recieve 10 blocks - YEA!!!

Shirley chosen by charge nurse Kay ... 9500 1148 6997 8033 1324 70

Linda S chosen by IV nurse Apple ... 9500 1148 6997 8033 1324 63

HAPPY almost NEW YEAR!! I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and are ready to Ring in the New Year!!! One last Party and then jump on too the Lotto Train and let's get rolling!!!!

*Never any pressure. The choice is always yours as to how many blocks you have time to make and we know life gets in the way sometimes.
*It is a great place to practice and get ready for joining a Swap.
*It is FUN TO WIN and/or see a PAL WIN and be able to WIN.
*If you make a block to keep you could have a Sampler Quilt at the end of the year :) :)

We will start by stitching a Modified Churn Dash. I was looking for something simple and different that you would be able to add a HEART to the center

* Begin with Cutting a 4.5" WoW center square. Add Heart after 12.5" block is sewn to center it in the Square. See picture.
* Cut 2.5" by Width of Fabric both White on White and Colored Strips.
Stitch together with acturate 1/4" seam.
* Cut into 2.5 x 4.5" sections. Do Not Undercut. Sew sections together to make 4-Patches for the corners of the 12.5" block. See picture
* Cut 4.5" x 4.5" sections of the sewn White on White and colored strips to make the center sections. See picture
* The Tip for the block is accurate 1/4" seams and do not undercut.

FABRIC: ANY 2 Colors pulled from the colors you are using in your Heart - 2.5" strips
BACKGROUND: Small print White on White - 2.5" strips
TWIST: A HEART will go in the Center Square. You may Applique, PaperPiece, Embroider or if you have a Fabric with a BIG Heart you can use that as well.

* Pin or Stitch Address Label to the FRONT Corner of each block
* Place ALL blocks in ONE LARGE BAGGIE.
* PLEASE add $2-$3 to help with Shipping to the WINNERs

WAYS to RECEIVE your WINNING tickets ...
* 1 ticket = Let me know you are interested

Good morning!!!
Lori - Anne Murray has been one of my favorite vocalists since back in the 70's. I learned the guitar playing her songs. Are you joining us this month?? Sure hope so.

Katy - Get well soon. Plenty of time to work on these if your health allows.

Linda S - The Hearts in the Center can be ANYWAY you would like to make them. PaperPieced, Embroidered or Appliqued or if there is a Fabric that has hearts big enough for the center yes you can use that as well. ENJOY!!!!!

Here are 2 blocks. Possibly will make 2 more later this month. It's still early. ;)

The spots that look black, aren't. They are a dark burgundy color.

I have to bow out for January. I will be spending 2 weeks in San Diego with family, which leaves me no time to sew. Maybe next month. Enjoy!

Katy - love the picture you sent me. I will post it when I am on the computer. Happy to hear you are feeling better. Prayers it continues completely. Do you think Shirley will join us this month?

Valerie - What is DG?? I know you have your hands full of getting ready for your Dad. I know that feeling of cleaning and packing. You think you have made progress until you turn around and wonder. Hope it continues smoothly for you and the family. I hope they are helping.

Love seeing the pictures!!!

Still haven't figured out how to post pictures the new way, but might get to that today. I have 5 blocks ready to mail and pieces to make a few more... maybe I'll whip up a couple more today!

Will probably mail tomorrow, as I will definitely have to go to town for groceries soon!
