The blocks are coming!

Man, you guys are FAST!!  Many blocks are already in the mail, on their way to me.  Thanks so much!  This project is getting much bigger than I initially considered, and I am THRILLED!!!  Keep them coming!  There are more people suffering from Hurricane Sandy than we can help, but I'm game to help as many as we can!

Just a note, if you are a no-reply commenter, I can't send you my mailing address.  If you haven't heard from me, that is why - I have already emailed everyone that I could get in touch with, and have tracked some people down through blogs.  If you are or if you know any of the following commenters, would you please let them know I can't reach them?  I can be emailed at, and I'll get my mailing address out to you all.


Again, thanks so much!  Look at what is on its way already!

Thank you, Becki in PA!
Thank you, Char in PA!
(And if you want to make it so that you are no longer a no-reply commenter, there are many tutorials out there.  One I just found is at

You have taken on a massive project here and thank you. My heart goes out to all affected from Sandy. I would love to make some blocks if wating for them to arrive from New Zealand is ok.

What an incredible response Erin, that's awesome!! I made my first one last night, and am hoping to make 3 more tonight (2 of each, looks like you want to use them in pairs?). We've got a swim meet all weekend, but maybe next weekend I can come over and help? Just let me know.
PS I finally found all my passwords & got my old blog back up, put out a call for blocks for you just now:-)

I'll make some tonight and tomorrow and send them your way. Do you want names or locations on the blocks?

If you get overwhelmed, let me know, I could quilt a couple for you.

Such a lovely project you have going here. Blogged my three that are ready this am. Stop by and see 'em.

This is so cool. You already sent me your address. I've shared your link with a few friends and will post on my blog as soon as I can. As soon as I get back in town I'll get some blocks made and send your way.
