Born in '64

This year i'm turning 50 & i'm borrowing an idea off a fellow blogger who is also turning 50. I'm thinking it would be lovely if any of my fellow bloggers who read this would be willing to send me signature blocks, 6-1/2" in size, any colour, pieced, EPP or applique. Use you favourite colour & no novelty prints please. All i ask is they have a plain piece that you can write your name & where you are from on it with either pigma pen or embroidered. Hopefully i can get enough to make a quilt but if not a wallhanging will be just as lovely. I'll email you my snail mail if you comment saying you are willing to make me a block. Thanks,

Happy Stitching,

I think its a great idea Jeanette, I would love to contribute to your birthday...do you have a particular colour (lights, brights, etc) that you would like? and what should we write on the fabric with - Pigmet pen? or should it be stitched?

I'd love to send a block! I did this a few years ago and ended up with a small wall hanging. Even though I didn't get as many blocks as I had hoped for, I still love it! :0)
