Hello my friends! I need help with another prayer quilt. Since I have moved to MO I do not have a quilting group now to help me make prayer quilts (I'm still looking!) so I really appreciate any help I get from ya'll! This quilt is for my Uncle Johnny Hobgood. Over the past few weeks he was diagnosed with throat cancer (they think it may be from the inhalers he has used for the past 50 years). He does not smoke or drink. After his pet scan, the doctors realized it has gone into his bones and it is already stage 4! My mom says that it is going to take a miracle for him to go into remission. He is only 55 years old, very young for this to happen. They started chemo and radiation this week which will go for six weeks. I would like for him to have this quilt as he starts feeling worse during these procedures. If you can help me make some blocks for his quilt I would appreciate it. Leave me a message and I will email you my address. I know it is short notice but I would like the blocks around June18th, this will give me time to make any additional blocks that is needed to balance out the quilt and get it quilted.
The quilt is going to be blue and cream 12 inch finished nine patch, 12 1/2 inch unfinished. I know most of you know how to make them, but here is a tutorial on how to make it and which way to press your seams.
Start with 4 1/2 inch blocks. Lay them out alternating cream and blue. I am counting the blue on cream as a cream since it is a light colored block.
This block will have my signature penguin material in it!
Remember, June 18 and leave me a comment if you can help. I've had some people reply lately that are no reply bloggers and I have no way of contacting them, so if in doubt - leave your email address.
If you cannot help with a block please pray for Uncle Johnny because that is what he really needs right now - a miracle. If something was to happen and he does not make it, I want this quilt to be a blessing to my Aunt Debbie. Please also be in prayer for her.
I am on a hunt for a hat this weekend to send him for when he starts losing his hair.
