Heroes Helping Heroes #2 Block Info

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all who have volunteered to help with this year's Heroes Helping Heroes Quilt to support The Heroes Foundation.



I have made the first block of the quilt and have taken pictures for a tutorial.  However, time has run out before my eyeballs close on me, so this is going to have to wait until tomorrow.  Check back and I will have it up for anyone who needs it.  Let me just say, this block is so fun to make.  It is exhilarating to create without a pattern and to just be free to cut the circles a bit wonky!

Now for a few details:


First things first.  I have set up a Flickr group for everyone to post their pictures as you finish your blocks.  I thought this would be fun for us to see what is in the works and everyone can comment on the blocks.
The group is called Heroes Helping Heroes Quilt.  If you need an invite to the group, just let me know.

The block(s) will need 14.5" x 14.5" square.  Also, please send a card with your block (s) that says who your block is in honor of.

Please use Kona solids or anything comparable for your fabric (designer grade fabric)  This is easy to find a Joann's and is very good quality.  Each block will need approx. 4-6 colors.  Let's stick with bright, vibrant solids.  No pastels, por favor.  Here are a few pictures of color inspiration:



Our very own, Charlotte's gorgeous quilt!

Thanks again and I'll be back here tomorrow with that tutorial.
