That would be great if we could see a picture. My MIL is a quilter and could have her help me with one, if I knew some details.

Thanks.

Laura,

Is it possible to post a picture of a square so this way we can get an idea on what or how to do square.

Ok, Gossamer had a great idea, if you'd like to quilt your own square, please donate $25, and if you'd like someone else to quilt your square for you, please donate $30. That makes sense doesn't it? [:D]

Gossamer has kindly agreed to help head up this project! If you have a square you'd like to send in honor of your lost one, email me at laura@preeclampsia.org

Likewise, if you can quilt or would like to be matched up with someone who quilts, email me with that, too!

Hi guys- I moved this to this forum so maybe more people will see it! I think the next step is to coordinate how we want this done, so I've emailed Anne to see what we can work out to get this project rolling! If you quilt and would like to donate your services to make memorial squares, please sound in here!

It would be great to have it together in time for the next Annual meeting, don't you think?

I sew, never made a quilt block, but I am willing to try to help some one remember their special baby. Please let me know if this is still going on.

I don't quilt either, but would love a square for me, and Tyler. Let me know where I, too, can send $$.

Wow, just saw this. I don't quilt, but would love to have someone make a square for me, for Faith. Is this still going on, how should I send in my donation?

Thanks!

I am interested in helping out with the quilt. I can quilt individual squares for people, help put the quilt together or what ever you need.
