More Star Blocks Needed

A few weeks ago, I posted about John'aLee from The Scrappy Appleyard, and her need for Star Blocks for the grieving family of a soldier.  She'd like to make quilts for the family members, and for her own daughter, who was engaged to Chris, the fallen soldier.

Initially the deadline for receipt of the blocks was end of October, and the blocks have been pouring in.

Visit her BLOG to see all of the beauty and variety of star blocks. 

I have made a few and was planning to ship them tomorrow, but tonight I noticed that John'aLee has extended the deadline to the end of November.  She has blocks for 2 quilts, and needs enough for 3 more quilts. 

I'm an amateur piecer, and if you sew at all, you can do this!

Tomorrow will be a short road trip for me, to have some fun with my glassy peeps.  By Sunday, there will be time to cut pieces for a few more blocks.  I plan to send them all at once to
