Lizzie's Block

OK Everybody,
we've all had a month when blocks were made for us and now it's Lizzie's turn.
She needs some time out to care for her family right now so we can help by giving her a little care.
I know she wanted blocks just like this.
Let's see how quickly we can get this to happen.

With Lizzie's permission I'd like to ask you all to join in making her blocks for this month.
Please could we all make 2 blocks (finished size 12.5" square) 
for her from our own fabrics with this look.
The centre is to be a  2" square and PLAIN RED
The surrounding strips to be cut around about 1" - 1.5" wide in an assortment of red & white, aqua & chocolate and yellow & grey.
Please try to use prints with the same modern look that most of these fabrics have.
I'm sure we all have something that will fit in amongst our stash.
Mail the blocks to my address and I'll put it together for her.
If you need reminding of my address just ask me in the comments and I'll email it to you.

Thanks for helping out, these blocks couldn't be for a nicer blog friend.

  1. Thanks for doing this Sue. I pulled up Lizzie's old post about her block yesterday and started going through my stash to find fabric to make her block. I was not sure what size I should make. Now I know! I will try to put my blocks in the mail to you later this week. Lizzie is a great blogger friend and I am so glad to know we will do something nice for her!

  2. Thanks for organising this Sue.Lizzie does so much for others it's the least we can do for her. I'll get mine done as soon as possible.
