As many know, I am working on a rather....ummm.....large project for the Making Memories Foundation. This group sends out bridal dresses (for a fee of $45.00) and then asks that a person or group puts it together in a quilt and they then auction the quilt with the proceeds going to breast cancer. Well...long story short, I put out a call and many, many spectacular folks have answered and sent me their rendition of a block for this quilt. This picture is the center. Its morphed a couple of times, but I think i'm finally beginning to be happy with where its going. The next picture is of the center surrounded by all the blocks i've received so far! This is HUGE and they are ALL gorgeous! I'm scared and proud and honored and...all at the same time! I can't wait to see how this evolves! I'll keep you posted on the center block (36x36) progress!

Is this project still open for new groups? I goodled "Making Memories", but didn't find info on making/raffling quilts.
If you could steer me in the right direction, that would be great. marcih@kc.rr.com
