March Quilt Blocks for Threading Hope

Ladies, I am so sorry for the delay on this month's project. It has been crazy in my world lately and I completely spaced on March being my month. Thank you for the reminder, Melissa!

This month I would like us to make blocks for a quilt that I will be donating to Threading Hope. It's a non-profit that I have been working with (Natalie too!) since September. They take quilt donations and give them to children around the world living in poverty stricken or war torn countries. These quilts provide warmth and love for the children who receive them.

Inspiration Mosaic for March's Blocks

I am asking for Courthouse Steps inspired blocks using Oranges, Blues and Grays. Two blocks would be great, but if you only have time for one that's okay too. The other request is to please send me a picture of yourself with your blocks. You can email me a picture of yourself and I will print it out to include in the package to Threading Hope. They like to send pictures of the people who make the quilts to the children so they can see the person (in this case people) who cared enough to make something for them.

Thank you for your help creating this quilt for a very special little boy or girl out there.

P.S. I don't have any specific requirements on the size of the blocks. I think it will look cool in all different sizes. And prints would be great! You aren't limited to just solid fabrics at all.

Oh, what a great project and a worthy organization to donate to, as well. I LOVE the "courthouse steps" block. It's really pretty!!!! Whoever receives your quilt is going to be very happy :) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather ;)
