Hands 2 Help 2020 Challenge.
The backing for both of these little quilts plus the blue border for the balloon quilt came from my local quilt shop, Sew Many Pieces in Richfield, Wisconsin. It is really nice fabric, and I am so grateful for it. I hope our quilt shops will still be in business when this cruel pandemic is over.
Each block is divided into four quadrants. Three of the four have seven strips, one for each day of the week. The fourth quadrant has some strips divided in half, for two days, so I can get all 31 days into the block. (Clear as mud? Click HERE to see my first post on this idea.)
March 5th is a very special day. See the baby fabric strip with the footprints? That marks the day my baby grandson, that I call Baby Buddy, was born.
Emily Dickinson had this to say:
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.
I'm going to think of that today as I'm making masks for local hospitals.
Keep hoping, and don't stop. And take good care of yourself.
Cheers for reading,
