a 6 inch heart

The best portion of a good man's life - his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love. ~William Wordsworth

Can you spare the time to make a heart block?

You may be aware that New Zealand has suffered a major mining disaster at Pike River mine on the west coast of the South Island, resulting in the deaths of 29 miners.

Shirley Goodwin is calling on quilters from anywhere to send her a heart block: she is collecting these blocks and will make quilts to give to the miners' families.

Here are the block details if you want to make some:-

Cream background – calico is fine
6 ½” unfinished size (so they will be 6” finished)
Pieced or appliquéd heart or hearts
Any colours or patterns for the hearts. Some of the quilts will be for children, so children’s fabrics are fine too.

From those of us on the West Coast, thank you for caring.

Esther, thanks for writing of this; I'm going to send a heart or two.
