I received an e-mail today that Clare's block for the Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Quilt Project was created.
I had submitted an application for the block months ago, but had forgotten about it. After a long day at the cardiologist's today (more on that later when I am not so brain dead), it was a pleasant reminder to receive the e-mail with a photo of the finished block. Once Clare's block is put into a quilt, they are going to send me a photo of the quilt as well.
The CHD Quilt Project is a very special project to bring awareness to the world about congenital heart defects. Each quilt is specially made of 42 different blocks. Each block is personally made for an individual born with a congenital heart defect. The application asks to tell something about the child the block is for. I wrote that Clare's nickname was "Clare Bear," she loved ducks and her cats, plus looked adorable in the colors yellow and blue. Thus her block was created! Included is her birth date and diagnoses as well.
Thanks to Noel who passed along the link on her blog many months ago! If you are interested in learning more about the quilts, go to CHD Quilt Project.
