I'm so touched!

Quilters never let you down!
Honestly when I posted "Would you help?" I was very unsure if anyone would. I'm such a newbie to quilt blogging and though I have some terrific followers, I haven't been around very long and am not very well known at all. But my belief that quilters are kind and generous is so true.

So far I know of at least 12 Red, White and Black Eight Pointed Star blocks on their way to me for Danny's Tribute Quilt. I hope to make it at least twin size so I'll need 8 more for that. If I can get 25 total, it will be a queen. I even can't imagine getting enough to make it king size.

The fact that other quilters have posted about this on their own blogs blows me way and I humbly thank you for spreading the word and helping me to make this a reality. Words cannot describe how surprised my sister is about all of this.

The softball tournament where this will be raffled off to a new owner is July 28th so I need to receive the blocks by the end of May so that I can get them pieced together and then off to my long arm master. Anyone willing to lend a hand? Leave me a comment and I'll email you my address.

Thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
