Good morning, Quilty Fighters!
If you any of y'all are in Houston recovering from Harvey or in Florida preparing for Irma, our thoughts and prayers are with you!
Just a quick update today! This past week, we did our second of five sets of blocks for the #MoreThan4QAL. I'm making the baby quilt, so that brings my total blocks to 10. This coming week we will do the same thing-- make 1/5th of our total number of blocks. And if you're new to the Quilt Along, these blocks are quick! Please join in with us!
This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, so I'll be doing a lot of reposting on Facebook to share stories of kiddos and facts about the plight of the pediatric cancer world with y'all. Please pay attention to the stories and the facts, even though they are hard to read and hard to process. Folks like most of us-- those who choose to enter this fight because we have the strength to do-- so have a lot of power to encourage the childhood cancer community and make a difference in the funding and research that is taking place. It is critical that we are both tenderhearted and informed. For those of you in our ranks who have watched a child fight cancer, you have our deepest respect and love.
Please be sharing your blocks on Instagram with #MoreThan4QAL! Together, we can make lots and lots of quilts to encourage all 40,000 children in treatment for cancer in the United States.
