As you all know, Kathy's DH passed unexpectedly in the beginning of October. The RR4Group 2 would like to request donations for a 10.5" quilt block(to finish 10") in a heart theme, any color scheme. The blocks will be used to make a backing for her RR quilt top that Group 2 will be completing. Any extra blocks will be used to make a matching quilt for her beloved and steadfast companion during this time of sorrow, her fur baby (dog). She shared with me, when I lost my pet on the 3rd, that she didn't know what she would have done without the unconditional love and companionship of her pet.  Kathy sold her house in three days from listing and will be making a temporary move to live with family until she can find a home close to her family.

Blocks will be due by November 30th (sooner is always better). Please respond to this posting or you can PM me directly if you would like to contribute and I will PM my address. I will put the backing together and Bethany Jane will do the long arm quilting. With the holidays coming up and Kathy's moves, we are aiming for a completed quilt by the end of February.  The RR ends in January so we will be moving quickly after it's completion. 

Please remember to sign the front of your block before sending to me. Also, if you are unsure about squaring, please leave some additional room for tweaking. 

Thank you for your compassion. 

aka Grandma Sunshine
