Nancy (Pepsigirl) messaged me that she will make a block or two, as will I.  That puts us at 13-15 blocks!

I have a family vacation starting March 14, which is why we are asking for the blocks by March 1st. 

Looking forward to working on this group hug!

I would love to join you but we are traveling in our RV for the month of February. This is the first time I've left home without a sewing machine. I will send hugs to her.

I will make three blocks, plus 3 fat quarters, plus the 9 sashing strips and the 3 strips of binding.  I know they are "scrappy", but is there a color preference? 

Rita will be so touched by this.

Oma, we have had an offer for backing already, so the fat quarters are not needed. 

So glad you are feeling better and able to participate!

It will be my "get your butt back in your room and start sewing again" push to get me sewing again.

You guys are GREAT!!!!!  I'm in for a couple blocks.  Oma great to have you back, not get sewing!  Rita will be over the top, she is a loving lady who appreciates everything.  My heart is dancing.  I believe in prayer and love, so if you can't make any blocks right now because of life, we understand.  Prayers and hugs are healing and appreciated too.  I'm hoping to get my blocks in the mail by Monday.  Thank you for the block link it's great!

Hi...I'd like to contribute one block.  Thanks to whoever started this.  Rita is a special person. 

This is my first time on the new forum format -- looks like there's a lot to (re)learn!

Question:  Ya'll mentioned signing your block.  Are many of you going to sign your block?  What type of pen would you use?  Do you just sign it in a corner or at the bottom?  As you can see I've never done this before.

I know it sounds obvious, but if you decide to sign your block, please stay well away from the 1/4" outside seam allowance.  (Don't ask, don't tell. :) )
