Aryn’s Quilt is opening.
I want you to meet a special young man who named Aryn. Aryn has a little brother Kaden who has had some stomach and intestinal issues for a while. His parents had the shock of their lives when they took him to the hospital around 6 weeks ago for IV fluids only to find out that he had very advanced liver cancer. The only viable treatment option for Kaden was a multi organ visceral transplant. This weekend his family received the call and Kaden received a new liver, stomach, pancreas and intestines. He has a long road ahead but this surgery was going to be his only chance for survival. Obviously with so much necessary attention on his brother Aryn must be having a difficult time. I have discovered that Aryn loves science and bugs. I thought this was a great opportunity to make bug jars. Here is the pattern to use. I think it will work well:
Please use a BLACK background with a lid of any color and bugs or critters in the jar. I think, as the blocks are a bit smaller that we should aim for 16 block sign ups for this quilt. I am going to be away for part of August so I will set the mail date for Sept. 1st. You can follow Kaden’s story at:
Please sign up in the comment section and I will reply to confirm. If you wish to make more than one block please indicate how many you are willing to make!
Thanks again everyone.
MORNING UPDATE: NICOLETTE HAS SIGNED UP TO MAKE 2 BLOCKS, 14 MORE NEEDED!
