Heart Blocks for Val

We're making heart blocks for Val! We used to do this when a Sunshine member lost a close family member. Val's dad recently passed away, and we on the cruise decided it was time to revive this tradition... at least for now.

Please make a 6.5" heart block... use any color, any style, any technique. Use white or White on White for the background. If paper pieced, please remove the papers before sending the heart to Val. Be sure to sign your block with a Pigma pen!

Get Val's address from Carol E. Please get your heart block to Val by April 1, 2014.

Here are some samples, just for your thought and perhaps inspiration:


P.S. At our Yahoo group page under "files," there is a tutorial for an 'Easy Heart Block' that might be helpful if you're stuck for ideas.

Quilter's Cruise

We have returned. I will attempt to add pictures. The cruise was eventful to say the least. It was good to see Terry, Brenda Lou, and Ann again. Nice to meet Carol E. , Bev H., Sally M., and Charlotte K. I know I am missing someone and will know who when I see the pictures. Sewing was an option of course. Some finished some, some finished none, some did not sew at all. Some read and relaxed. See if you can recognize anyone.
