We are on a roll. For those of you who didn’t see our last
quilt for a foster child, there’s a picture at www.quiltbyassociation.wordpress.com. We now have another
foster teen who needs some attention. She’s
17 and is about to move into her own apartment. She recently became a mom
to a wonderful little girl and this has, for obvious
reasons, posed challenges for her. She would love to know that we’re all
pulling for her.
She is absolutely obsessed with everything related to
Elmo. She was Elmo for Halloween, for example. She also spends any extra money
she has on sneakers.
Let’s do two coordinated quilts… one larger one for our foster teen and a smaller one for her little girl. The theme will be “From Elmo with Love,”
and let’s use
Elmo-red, black, pink and purple.
If you would like to contribute, please send me 8 ½ inch
blocks for the mom and, 4 ½ inch squares for the little girl. My address is 2727 Kirby Drive, Apt 23D, Houston, TX 77098.
The holidays are a busy time for everyone, so let’s try to
have all the blocks in by the end of January and finish the quilt by the end of
Happy quilting, everyone, and thank you for your big hearts.
