I can make blocks, and I can sew blocks together. Would need to send on to someone to quilt it. I could supply sashing and border, would be nice for a few $ contribution toward them, along with the blocks.

I don't know the person's colors, but a suggestion as to block is to have everyone make their favorite block in the specified colors. That way everyone doesn't have to learn or "try out" an unfamiliar block. I think it goes faster if everyone chooses their own block to make and the quilt will really be a work of art from everyone.

But, I'm open, I'll go along with the majority.

thanks for starting this, T. hugs, carol/kittyquilt

Susanna, I would be more than happy to make a couple of blocks for the quilt. Don't know at this time how much I could contribute as far as $$ go, but could try when the time comes. Please let me know.

Please count me in!! I can certainly do blocks and/or sew together a top. I can't quilt unless you wanted it tied. Can contribute $ toward ancillary.

Thank you "T" for getting this started.
