Blocks for Amy and Annabel



A huge thank you to Sarah Fielke for sending Kaffe Fassett scraps all the way from Australia so that I could make these two blocks measuring 8 x 11 inches. They will be used in quilts for Amy and her daughter Annabel who lost Dan a few weeks ago.  Amy`s favourite fabrics are Kaffe Fassett and with her husband`s love of the music world, Sarah thought these blocks which look like a bass line on a stereo display would be appropriate.

That is such a nice thing to do for Amy and Annabel.
Look how many followers you have now - 191. It was only the other day you were looking for your number 100. Well done!!

What a lovely thing to do, and what great giving and cooperation that happens in the quilting bloggy world that allows these kind things to happen.

The links made between people online can have real, tangible, and significant impact...it's a lovely and affirming thing! These are lovely blocks, and a beautiful gesture.
