Can someone share a picture of one that was done or almost done so I can get an idea... I'm sure I can do one rather quickly just need some idea on what it needs to look like.

Thanks...

I sent my quilt square out on Friday and I sent it to an address you had emailed me initially. I just realized that your address here is different. Please let me know if you get it. I am so upset.

I could have sworn I posted on this topic already (did it get deleted?), but wanted to light a fire under you to make this as big as possible. We'd like to unveil it at this year's conference in August!

perhaps My mother and I could work on something for Sarah Belle for Erin. We haven't spoken to her yet, but I don't think she would object to us making a square in her baby's honor.

I need to get mine finished - I have the fabric and got some embroidery done for part of it - I just need to put it together.

My sewing skills begin and end with mending leggings and sewing on buttons, but I would love to make a quilt square for Tara. I have ideas about how I want it to look, and I even bought some cloth and stuff, but I don't know how to begin. Can anyone recommend a good how-to Web site or book?

Sue -
I did not back my square as I would think that they will back the entire quilt once they receive all the squares. That is the typical way quilts are put together. Mine is small pieces with a focal point in the middle with Chloes name and birthdate. I hope this helps and I just know your square will turn out perfect!

Try to catch me later or this weekened if you can - You've been on my mind!

Hugs,
Suz
