"I am not sure how many here know Sue Taynors. She is most often found on Jaye's Sweet Interuptions thread. She lost her daughter this past week in a most horrible way. Her daughter was murdered. Several people have approached me about making a "Comfort Quilt" for her. I spoke with Jaye and we think we have a way to do this and get it done quickly.
Sue loves her flowers so we thought of having those who want to join in send me 8" squares of a pretty floral material. I will sash all of them and pass them down to Jaye who is going to Quilt as you go. We felt this would work up nicely. It would be a simple quilt showing our love for Sue. It is one of those times when less is more and simple is love....We can save the piecing and the applique and the embroidery for a time when we don't need something so quickly....

Remember, I am asking for 8" blocks

I would like to be able to spend this month sashing blocks and have them to Jaye by the middle of May. I would send them down to her each week as I got them done. If you would like to participate with this. Please let me know and I will sign you up. "

Some names may not be familiar as they are from the other building but know and love Sue too....

I'll head over the fabric store and get something out as quick as I can.

(Linda Kay) Del Rio, TX(Zone 9a)

Sign me up please?

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

I'm sure I have some florals to send.


I definitely have florals (with butterflies!).
I spoke to Jaye this am (she called me & woke me up - THANK YOU - I needed to wake up well before then, so needed the wake-up call lol ) and she said it's to be a 12" block.
I'll send some beautiful 8" blocks (I cut & pieced one last night, so could do one for Sue, too, but will go with the group).

thank you for the opportunity to comfort Sue.

btw - I sent an email to my DD telling her that she's a joy to me, and that I don't tell her often enough. She replied back "I don't know what I did to prompt this, but it was the bright spot in my day" I replied that she didn't need to do anything more than be herself.
I know it was prompted by Sue's experience with her Jessie, and I know how quickly someone can pass out of your life. My DD needed to hear how much I love her........

Please count me in...

Met Sue while at Joyce's a few years ago..always willing to lend a hand, I feel so badly for her and her family...if there is any other way of helping out just let me kow!

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Well, I'm glad that Barb's leading this project.
I tend to confuddle people.. lots of experience with myself!! Lolol.

Susan, I said, to not cut anything until it's confirmed. Cause I know you're a super achiever and like to get things done asap. Sorry I woke you up.
You did a good thing Susan with your DD.

Thank you all so much for signing up. Like Betty here, I've met Sue Taynors @ the same reunion.
She has a beautiful personality and truly deserves everything that's good.
Especially now.

Jaye - in my last post I meant that I would send "chunks" of material. Cut where you will, to make the block you wish.
You'll understand when you see the fabric - it's not an all-over pattern, rather more like little pictures of flowers and butterflies

cya later - off to a Maundy Thursday service at the Church.

Marietta, OH(Zone 6a)

I'll get something out for you in the morning, Jaye...

TabacVille, NC(Zone 7a)

Kathy Kiz.. mail it out to Barb please. She'll sash it first.
Thanks Kathy Kiz.

Barb, please add Judy.
Seedtosser1 that is.

Barb, if you want 12 inch, please edit first post. I'll try to get something out tomorrow morning. I stopped and got the fabric this afternoon.


Ok Jaye - re-addressed the envelope to Barb - Thanks for the heads-up.
So scatter-brained lately, it's a surprise to me that I hold onto any thought for very long......
I'll try to get it out tomorrow, after our Good Friday service.....

Marietta, OH(Zone 6a)

okie-dokie..... envelope rerouted North!!!

(Barb) Manchester, NH(Zone 5a)

To clarify the request above - I am asking for 8" blocks. I will add sashings to bring them to 12". The sashings will serve to bring continuity and will bind the blocks together as we all are bound together. Let me know if anyone needs my address.
Hugs and love to you all, Barb

I'm still away from home with no cutting or measuring tools so I bought what I thought was a beautiful floral print with /butterfly & bird, 1/3 yard and mailed it uncut. Use what you want/ need for the project. Sorry it's not cut in the right size for you. Maybe it will make night corner squares or something.

(Karen) Traverse Cit, MI(Zone 5a)

Packet is ready, I'll send out Monday.

(Barb) Manchester, NH(Zone 5a)

Thanks Pat. I know how difficult it is when we need to be away from all our tools!! I'm thankful that you are able to help out and I deeply appreciate it.
I'll be watching for these wonderful squares to arrive. Can't wait now!!!!
May you all have a wonderful and most blessed Easter.
Love, Barb
