I made my first block for the tribute quilt that a friend, Sally has started for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy that happened in Connecticut this month.
I designed this appliqued angel quilt block myself and the finished size of the block is 12 1/2 inches as Sally has requested for the quilt she is making to donate to the school. She is still looking for more blocks if you are able and interested in making one or more yourself...hint hint hint :-) If she were to receive any extra angels they will be made into wall hangings that will also be donated to the school. Here is a link to Sally's Quilting Corner blog so you can contact her if you have any questions. I hope everyone is ready for the New Year, and remember that one action of kindness can spread like wildfire, let's always challenge ourselves to treat people the way they deserve to be treated and that even includes believing in ourselves. :-)
PS... If you would like to see more of the angel appliqued quilt blocks I have completed click on this link. =)
PPS...This time I used Heat n Bond Lite
to make these angels instead of the Lite Steam-A-Seam2 like I have used in the past to applique with. I love that the Heat n Bond was one layer of paper, no more fooling around with which side of the paper to trace on, there was only one side. Made it a nice no brainer. I need that sometimes, you know? =)
