On October 4th, Regina of The Queen Bee's Buzz started a drive to collect 4-patch blocks and to raise funds for the American Cancer Association in memory of her mother who lost her fight with cancer this past summer. October 4th was her mother's birthday.
Regina has started a blog for her project 4 Patches 4 Hope to keep track of the number of 4-patch blocks donated and the amount of funds raised. Details are simple... where to mail the blocks and how to make a donation are all included on this blog. Please know that you do not have to make a donation if you'd like to contribute blocks.
I learned about this project from my blog friend Linda of Stray Stitches, who has already sent off her 4-patch blocks...

...and I plan to make some scrappy 4-patch blocks this weekend in memory of Regina's mother and in memory of my mother who lost her battle with cancer in 1970.
Have a few fabric scraps and a couple of minutes? Make a 4-patch... make a donation... make a difference!
