The first block came out on this past Sunday. I got the block made this afternoon. Here is my block designed by Pat Sloan.
One reason I wanted to do this QAL is because there will be so many different techniques used. On this first block I hand blanket-stitched the fused heart. I had never done that before. I used red perle cotton but, it is difficult to see in this photo.
Thank you to all those who send me words of comfort regarding my step-daughter. Sadly, she passed away last Wednesday afternoon. The out-pouring of love was unbelievable. She had so many visitors at the hospice that someone asked if she was famous. She had touched so many lives. We miss her and her smile.
May all your ups and downs in life be with needle and thread.
