As most of you have seen, Mary is dealing with a lot of issues and needs our  outward sign that we care and want her to get the help she needs.  Her favorite color is purple.  I will volunteer to put it together.  My mailing address is Diana Binkowski, 1054 East Brentwood Dr,  Morristown, Tn 37814.   A 12 1/2 inch block that will finish at 12 inches.  I will do the rest.  Any pattern you choose.  Easy or difficult is your choice.  Please sign them.

Thank You,

Diana in East TN

Diana, I would like to participate ... our back roads are terrible today, and I don't have anything purple in my small stash of fabric. Do you have a date in mind as a final date to get a block to you? Thank you. :)

Looks like Lovemyavy was reading my thoughts!  I would very, very much like to contribute. It just depends on the deadline. I can't get downstairs to my sewing room with this darn broken ankle in a cast. I should be able to get down there in a few weeks. If unable to make the deadline, may I just send you a check to help out with the costs?

How does March 1st sound for a deadline?  That is after holidays and hopefully after bad weather problems.  If someone doesn't  have purple in their stash, let me know.  I have lots and since you'll only need a small piece, I will send you some.  Thanks for participating.

Diana, March 1 is great ! Give,s us time to get through the holidays. Hopefully,  Spring will be  a new beginning for Mary. Having spent the week in Tennessee last year together, I feel like I know her a little bit. She is a sensitive, caring, outgoing, and very likable women. She did a great job organizing the retreat there. Her health issues are major and extremely expensive so I can see why she worries so much. However, making her a quilt is a wonderful gesture of everyone's caring, and love. I would like to be included in making a block for her.  We sure do have a lot of kind quilters here at QCA and Im sure Mary will be uplifted by the generosity of so many.   Thank You Diana, you are a dear and special friend to her.  Susan

Diana, I am in. I will make note of the address and get stitching on this very, very soon. My nine year old granddaughter is coming for Christmas. I will include her in on the design, a way of sending more prayers, I guess.

And Marla, my mother adored Will Durant.

Dianne,

I will make or send one too. I don't know if I can get the hand to cooperate, but I just found a big stack of 12 1/2 squares with MIL's stuff.  I know I saw at least a couple of purples.  Will get them out after the holidays.

I don't know Mary except minimally through posting.  My oldest daughter suffers with bi polar disorder and I have had to make the decision to make that phone call. One time I ignored it and a friend she had not heard from in years called her.  She had just taken a handful of pills.  Fortunately that friend did call and have her MHA'd and saved her life.  I have learned that the anger is minor from having her taken in, compared to what might have been.

Count me in.  I'll get a block made up and sent next week.  If I leave it too long, I'll forget the darn thing.  Are batiks OK?  That's about all I have in purple.
