Blocks for Jeaneane....

This past summer a tornado hit Joplin MO with a vengeance. 
I read a posting at Bunny Hill Designs 
where Anne Sutton asked
fellow quilters if they would help make blocks for Jeaneane. 
I could not imagine if this had happened to me. 
I knew I was going to help in some way
but it was a very busy time for me so...
...I sent a small package to Anne for Jeaneane...
no blocks but a charm pack of Kansas Troubles... Jeaneane could start to build a new fabric stash. 
This past Sunday I spent the day with my friend Christa...
...we were going to have a sew day....something we haven't done in a long time.
she brought lots she could have worked on,
but instead we made blocks and more blocks
...blocks for Jeaneane.
We shopped in the morning,
 came home for lunch
 and sewed on blocks all afternoon,
had dinner and Christa left about 8 o’clock
....she said she had a ‘great day’ when she left.
  I had a great day too.  She is a great friend.
This is what we made on Sunday.
8.5" unfinished block x 10

Monday night Christa came over again, I ordered pizza and
we made 4 more blocks and made plans to make more...

here are the 4 blocks we made on Monday
More blocks for Jeaneane

and we are not done yet!!!
