I would like to thank the APQS Family that came together to make this happen. A special Thanks to Connie for bringing this to our attention, to Betsy for generously offering to put it together and quilt and ship it to Rita, to all the members that jumped on this band wagon and made it happen in such a short time frame. This is a truly amazing group we have on this forum. I am truly blessed to be a part of it I am going to post a picture of this amazing project at the front of the post and hope you will look at the list of people who have made this happen Thank-you for making this an easy project to co-ordinate.

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!

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!
