I am contributing a pink block to Anna's quilt, which will be donated to the Lemmen-Holton Cancer Pavilion in Grand Rapids, MI (where Tina had her treatments). Whenever I'm in need of inspiration, I consult my "Favorite Quilt Blocks" Pinterest board, which is full of tutorials I want to try, and happened upon this string block by 107 Quilts:
I delved into my way-past-overflowing pink scrap bin (it's a small bin, to be fair) and found just enough strips to use. How's that for using my resources wisely (aka not cutting yardage)? I didn't plan for "life" to end up on the block either - it just happened. I think that makes it even more special.
You can make a block, too! If you would like to contribute a pink block to Anna's quilt, you can find more info and her contact info here. She will be hosting a give-away on August 2 for anyone who participates in her cause (monetary contributions, pink blocks, participants in the blog hop, and reposting about the blog hop).
Speaking of which, if you would like to make a monetary contribution, you can find the Go Fund Me campaign here. Anna's family would be appreciative of any donation you would be willing to make.
Here's a list of participating bloggers for the rest of the blog hop:
Thanks Anna! I can't wait to see your pink quilt and I hope that we can all help your MIL!
