Keep your signature within the middle of your 6" sq. The block should measure 6 1/2" sq. UNbleached muslin in the center.
All of you are doing a wonderfull job.
From our Host Lori.
I put unbleached muslin in the original comment about the block. If someone needs a piece of unbleached muslin, I will send them one. Also, if anyone is having trouble with the block I'm going to make up a pattern and I'll send them one. Thanks Tul.
Thanks Lori, much appreciated.
Update Thursday May 14th.
Be prepaterd to have all blocks to maggie by June 15th.
Please don't hessitate to post regarding unforseen problems and/or delays. The sooner we know, the quicker we can find a resolution.
Good Luck and God speed every one.
xteacher is asking for direction with making/creating a label.
This is what she wrote.......
I offered to do a label, can someone let me know what we need to include on it? I can do a label on muslin and include it with my block, if I know what to put on it. Thanks, to everyone that is working on this. This is the first project I have gotten involved with.

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
