It has been a little while since I told you about my All Heart Appeal to raise money for Cancer Research and I thought I would do an update.
First of all I want to thank each and every one of you kind hearted people out there who have donated a heart or hearts for my appeal. I really do appreciate it and love the thought you have all put into making each and every heart. Some have involved some interesting techniques that I would never of thought of. You are all so generous.
At the moment they are all laid out on my design wall and I can't help looking at them and reconfiguring them to try and get the balance right.
After much thought I decided that having an all white/cream background might not allow the hearts to shine through enough so I decided to branch out and ask for pink or red backgrounds.
This has helped greatly and the layout now seems more harmonious with some colour popping out. I am in the process of making a few more pink or red blocks to fit into the bottom left corner to balance it out.
I now have about 50 blocks and would like about 64 to complete the quilt. Hopefully it will be completed by the end of September.
Again, thank you so much for your generosity. Anyone else wanting to donate a block is very welcome - just e-mail me and I will send you my address via e-mail (please make sure you send me an e-mail address if a no-reply blogger).
