I was just noticing that the letter that goes with this block in the book is dated April 15. Kind of strange how close that is to real life for me. The letter writer talks of spring time and I can't help but think my weather is way different from what they were experiencing. Our backyard has been blanketed with snow in the last two hours. Pretty strange!
The letter also mentions dropping of some quilts in the spirit of charity. I have slowly but surely been filling up 9" blocks with crazy quilt scraps. This is to assemble a double size top to give to our quilting ladies at church to complete. They give quilts to all sorts of people and groups and I know those scraps will come together to wrap someone in need with love and warmth and comfort.
I can't believe I had been so close to finishing blogging about these blocks when I hit a wall and ceased blogging for so long. My passion is reignited though and the finish line is in sight.
And speaking of finish lines, if you are a person of faith, give a shout out to the big JC to offer peace and comfort for those who were injured and those who lost loved ones in the bombs at the Boston Marathon on Monday (April 15).
