I received my box of squares to assemble the 2010 Warrior Quilt project. It is supported by the Neighborhood Ford Store. The blocks are created by participants in the Pittsburgh Race for the Cure. Last year, I was able to assemble and quilt 4 quilts from the blocks made. This year, I will be contributing 2 since life has been so busy lately.
You can read more about the blocks and see photos of women creating the blocks here. Last year, I did not know anyone in my immediate circle actively battling cancer. What a difference a year makes. I have a dear friend with breast cancer and my dh dealing with his. The next couple of days will be spent squaring up over 300+ blocks. Looks like this batch I received may have not all been made at the race since they look more like homemade squares and will need to be squared up. Early glance shows a lot of squares made by children. It's so inspiring to read all the squares and messages. I'll try and share some of my favorites along the way.
