I got this in my email this morning. It is Nova's block in the CHD Quilt
. They're fixing the death date as we speak, because as you can see, the year is wrong, but they responded immediately when I pointed that out, and I had visions of them typing email with one hand and pulling stitches with the other. It's such a wonderful project, and so big. There are, according to the website, 37 finished quilts, and 4 more that are unfinished, and apparently enough blocks made to constitute 45 quilts. There are 42 CHD children honored on each quilt. That's 1890 children, and many many more whose blocks are not yet made, including Alexis. I'm sure seeing all the quilts assembled in one place is a real statement to just how many children and families are effected by CHD, and that's such a small sampling of the true number. They're constantly working to catch up with the requests they have, and getting more and more requests all the time.
I hope some day they get done
