The blocks are coming out.
Funnily enough Alex asked the other day why I hadn't made any myself (ummmmmmmmmm !) so I think I will take a chance, cut these up and work them into other blocks.

At the annual Viveur's Summer Meet in July, the Quilts 4 Leukaemia block box was taken out to show them to everyone who was interested. Lots of oohhhhh's and ahhhhhh's.
BUT someone (not me) didn't put the blocks back in the correct bags. I have got 5 stray ones and I don't know who sent them. Some of the material is red and white stripes (a bit like mattress material). There is flowery material amongst the strips and a red fabric with swirls on it.
If you have sent me blocks within, say, the last 3/4 months can you point me in the direction of the post on your blog and I'll see if they match them up.
Siobhan - I know you sent me 2 but the material on the stray ones seems to match the ones that I know are yours. Did you send me more than 2?
Jen - did you send me any more and if so what is the material?
I need to know. Alex is designing the next quilt and I need names!!!!!!!!!!
The work on Quilt No. 4 has started.
Alex got out the blocks last night and started playing. She selected 20 with a geometric theme and started pinning them up on the "design wall" (cough splutter).
This quilt is being made for a nephew of Judy in the States who I came across on Stashbusters. She mentioned he had got leukaemia on the group sometime ago and I approached her off list to ask if she would mind if I made a quilt for him.
This is going to be alot quicker than the others as I am sending her the flimsy, top, or whatever you call it and she is going to finish it off.

You know I was on about Jenni's brilliant idea for those of you who can't sew, or haven't got the time to make a block for Quilts 4 Leukaemia?
The gift certificates have been flooding in.
There has been a bit of confusion with the certificates, notifying me, etc but I think that is finally sorted.
Anyway, the first box of goodies arrived yesterday.
