John'aLee of The Scrappy Appleyard has put out a second call for quilters with some red, white, and blue scraps to make a star block (8.5" or 12.5") so she can make five quilts for grieving family members... her daughter who lost her fiance a week before he was to return home...
...the mother and two brothers of the fallen soldier, and the soldier's best friend who was with him when he was killed in Afghanistan.
John'aLee has received enough blocks to make two quilts and has extended the deadline until November 31st.
Although I've sent a couple of blocks, I'm going to dig into my scrap bins and make a couple of more.
I'm thinking that if I can make one block per week until mid November, I can send John'aLee another five blocks.
Do visit John'aLee's block The Scrappy Appleyard and read the story and see all the beautiful blocks that have been sent already. Consider sending a block...
