Call to quilters all over the world for Healing Hearts blocks

Shirley, in New Zealand, is co-ordinating "Healing Hearts" for those affected by the recent mining disaster. Read the instructions on her blog - and do what you can for others in need.

If you are in need of some pattern ideas - check out this link I found on the Internet. Remember that Shirley is looking for 6 1/2 inch (6 inch) blocks. 

Happy sewing, Jennifer
