It's starting to really look like a quilt!

I have many new blocks to share that are really bringing the Heroes Helping Heroes {2} quilt together.  

First up is my CosmicThimble partner, Lindsay, who blogs over at ElleSquare.  She made two blocks for me.  The blue is definitely her color and I believe she put that little bit of pink in there for me.  Thanks girl, for helping out!



I want to say an extra special thanks to Julie, of Distant Pickle.  Not only did she send two gorgeous blocks,  but she also sent an ENTIRE QUILT!  However, I wish that quilt was with someone else.  Let me explain: Julie made this quilt for her Grandfather when she found out he was diagnosed with cancer.  She worked around the clock to get it finished for him so that it would comfort him while getting treatment or just to feel her love when laying under it.  Unfortunately, just as she was finishing it up, she got the phone call that he had passed.  Julie has generously donated this quilt to the Heroes Foundation silent auction.  She hopes to raise money for the very disease that took him.  Thank you, Julie!








Next up is Tisha of QuiltyTherapy and the Indianapolis Modern Quilt Guild.   Thanks, Tisha, for your yummy pink filled blocks!  How did you guess that was my favorite color?  And how is that baby doing in your belly?




Erin Metzler has sent this incredible block.  I love that the colors are all from the darker palette and so different from what I've received so far.  Thank you, Erin!



And finally, Betsy has sent this really cool block.  I love the orange and grey combo.  Thank you so much, Betsy for being a part of this quilt.


Here is what we what the quilt looks like so far...


I LOVE IT!!!
