Aryn’s Quilt is opening.

July 29, 2008 at 4:07 am 14 comments

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:

Bug Jar pattern

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:

Kaden’s site

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.

    Would love to make some blocks, but I don’t have bug or critter fabric. I even don’t know what is meant by the word critter… so please fill me in!

    I would be happy to make two blocks as well. I guess I’m off to find some bug fabric!

    I’ve got some lady bug fabric that would be just perfect. Sign me up for two blocks. I’ll see what other critters I can find. Beth

    Please let me know if you still need blocks for the bug jar quilt. I run a quilt group and we may be able to do the rest for you but I need to know how many and by when do you need them?
