Well, it's been a wild ride this time around, but our Block Party 2012-13 has come to an end.

This event was a HUGE success with 552 quarter blocks returned to me.  5 very large quilts have been made and you can see them posted below.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that the response to this project has been increasing in size each time we get together to have a "Block Party" for our friends at Quilt for a Cause, Inc. 
Cancer has affected all of us in some way.  It is with great HOPE  that some day this horrible disease will no longer affect anyone we love.  We have FAITH  that the work we do here will help.  We will continue to have the COURAGE and LOVE in our hearts to work together until one day we find a CURE. 

It is with those sentiments that the 5 quilts that were made have been named: Hope, Faith, Courage, Love, Cure

                                                                         FAITH             84 x 100 inches
                                                                             HOPE                 73 x 94 inches
                                                                          COURAGE         85 x 90 inches
                                                                             LOVE             90 x 90 inches
                                                                              CURE      88 x 94 inches
Because each person made 1/4 sections they did not sew them together before sending them to me.  Each 1/4 section was sewn together with others that came in so the label for each of the 5 quilts will have everyone's name on it as shown below.  The name of the Quilt and the Size of the Quilt will also be on the label. 


I want to take a moment to say a very special thank you to all the machine quilters  that donated their time and batting to this project. 
Jennifer Soosay
Katherine Christenson - 2 quilts
Cathy Leitner - 2 quilts
I would also like to say a special thank you to my sister in law, Donna Phillips, for helping me stitch all these quilts together.
Also, to Donna and my friend, Carol Crago, for helping me stitch the bindings down.  It was great fun visiting with these gals while we stitched. 
God Bless everyone that helped on this project that is so near and dear to all of us.  Please pat yourselves on the back for a JOB WELL DONE!  Until next time, Lynda 

You can see the back of all the quilts on my website.  Click on Box Lunch Social Page on the home page.  You can also see all of the Block Party Projects archived below the current event.
