scrappy Saturday

Margaret's Hope Chest is collecting log cabin blocks for "A Mother's Hope" program. The blocks will be made into quilts, which will be given to women who are battling post partum depression. You can read all about it here. They will be collecting blocks through November 1. Would you consider making and sending a few (or several) blocks? It's a fun way to play with scraps and help out a great cause...all in one fell swoop!

This will be tomorrow's project. Thank you for posting. My daughter dealt with post-partum depression with the birth of their second child.
She's a child birth educator and knew it could happen but since it didn't happen with their first child she was really hit hard when it happened with her second pregnancy. She has since become a strong advocate for educating people about the 'fourth trimester' where women's needs are often over looked or if they express their feelings, they are dismissed. It will be a great honor and pleasure to make blocks for this project.

I'll have to see what fabrics I have that AREN'T juveniles, LOL. I'm sure I can find something in there. I won't have a half day for a couple of weeks yet, but maybe when I do we could get together and make some! I work the weekend of the 18th so it would be sometime during the following week.
