WiP and a Callout to Fellow Quilters

First the callout: if you knew someone in need to make a difference in a community, would you help? My bloggy buddy Michele has sent out the word that she needs star blocks in red, black and white. These blocks will be sewn into a quilt which will be raffled off as part of an annual baseball tournament which is held in remembrance of her late nephew, Danny. All the details can be found here. I'm sure she'd appreciate any star blocks you could send her way.

As far as progress goes this week, there wasn't a lot. I got my Granny Square shams done to go with the twin quilts.
I'm also trying to get things together to make a travel bag from Studio Cherie. Still can't find jute webbing unless I order it online so I may not have it done for my weekend trip with my sister, mom and grandma. So I decided to make up a quick bag I could take.
It's just a little pouch but I needed something for my chargers and such. I thought that Heirloom fabric by Joel Dewberry was just the trick. Very cute!
Now back to my jute webbing search! Oh, and I'm pretty sure today is the last day to vote for the Accuquilt Barn Quilt contest. Make sure you get over there and vote. If you happen to like 18, 94 and 100, I sure appreciate your vote!
And don't forget to check everyone else's progress over at Lee's!

Thank you so very much for the call out. I do honestly appreciate it. The response so far has been amazing and each time one arrives in the mail it brings me to tears. I can't wait to show everyone the amazing quilt that is being created by quilters all over the world.

Oh and I almost forgot...I love the bag.

Good luck on the contest.
