Quilts for Mary Lou Weidman..

Remember the cross blocks I made for Mary Lou Weidman's cross quilt?
Well Michele Bilyeu made them into this lovely quilt.  Check out her blog here to see more pictures of her process to make this quilt.  She couldn't use all the blocks so she also made a pillow case and will send the rest as prayer flags for people affected by the earthquakes in Nepal.  Thanks Michele, I can see at least two of my minis at the bottom and understand a third was also included.
 Which as you can see has made it's way to Mary Lou to enjoy with much love and healing.
Remember all the bra blocks that my friends and I made for her?  This one is Ethel's.
 and mine?
Well Carol Haueter made the top and Tami Levin from Lemon Tree Tales quilted them and mad a backing and label for it.  click on the previous sentence to see more pictures.
 Most of us sent in squares with messages on pink or red squares that Tami made into a pixel hear.
 A closer look at the heart before it was quilted.
I've heard that Mary Lou now is in possession of this second gift of love from on line friends and was supposed to have slept under it last night.  May both these quilts send healing love to her as she recovers.

Thanks to all my Whimsical Mary Lou yahoo group members and a few who don't belong to the group for making this possible for Mary Lou.

Such fun! Combined with the two quilts she received before I mailed our cross quilt, we've got that woman covered!!! Cannot even begin to imagine how many quilts she has or how bright and wonderful her storage must be! Let us all pray that all the love keeps her uplifted inside and out for the rest of her healing journey!I know all of the love and joy the members of her groups and classes pass onto her fill her up with so much. You gals did great with your quilt, too!!!

Both quilts reflect what quilting is all about...the caring hearts of those who quilt.

All your caring and love must surround Mary Lou with wonderful healing warmth! I had a very good laugh over the bra blocks and think that they make a wonderfully fun quilt!
