    Hi all,

    Long but sweet. My grannie will be 80 on May 17th, on April 16th she had a breast removed, she made it through surgery and is now home recovering. We now know that she has cancer in her lymph nodes. To my point, I would like to make her a quilt and I was wondering if you all would be willing to donate a block. I think it would make her extermely happy to know she has support from people who don't know her; and the fact that I have found such wonderful people. Our family has been in term-oil for over 3 years, and I just wanted her to know that we love her and we are proud of her for everything she has done. The colors of your blocks are not important, I would like one thing on it some how. Your state, and BYC nick would be great. Writing it with a fabric marker is fine. I am going to try and put a pink ribbon in the middle. So, if you are interested please let me know.

    Sorry So Long Winded.

    Aimie

    Sorry I can't help with the quilt, (I can't sew) but I wanted to send my best wishes and let you know I will pray for your gramma and your family. Grandma's are very special people and I think it's wonderful that you are doing this for her.

    I'm glad everyone is so thoughtful even those of you whom can't sew. It's the thought and prays that will get us through and this is a way for me to say thank you to her. I am going to put some pieces of my children's clothing in my squares. I know she will love it.

    Again thank you so much,
    Aimie

    I just wanted to say Thanks again. If you all don't mind and can get them to ASAP, I would greatly appreciate it. I will hopefully have it done by the time we go home at the end of May. I'll keep everyone posted.

    I told my Grandma about your Grandma and she said she wanted to send a quilt block also. I hope this is alright.
