In May I was overwhelmed with graduation events for daughter #2, moving daughter #1 back home for the summer, and finishing my own semester's crazy writing work. My service sewing was all taken up with sewing quilts and totes for Bama Bound Quilts. (Please check them out - this is an incredible grassroots organization that is helping some of the children who lost EVERYTHING in the terrible tornadoes that they had a few weeks ago.
I did finally make this block to add to our collection in the name of May's Fourth Week. It should make a happy friend for another block in similar fabrics.
Valor Quilt Bee is an online, ongoing, EASY-GOING quilting bee to coordinate far-flung individual contributions of blocks for Quilts of Valor tops. These quilts are presented to U.S. servicemembers who have been injured/afflicted on deployment. It is open to everyone who wants to participate. Join the FUN!
