A Quilt for Terri

As many of you know I've begun a quilting project to memorialize Terri Schiavo and other victims of euthanasia. I've found just the most wonderful quilt block for such a project--- it is called the 'T block' and in the past was used by the Temperance movement. Click on the link for instructions.

One could embroider the names of Terri Schiavo and others on the triangle just above the letter 'T'.

I've already started a quilt using a different block, but I've already got more names of euthanasia victims to memorialize than there are squares in the quilt so it's just going to be a case of 'continued on the next quilt'. Terri's name will be featured in both quilts.

If anyone else out there has been doing a quilt to remember Terri, drop me a line to let me know or else leave a comment. If your quilt is on the internet or you have some other site of interest let me know and I'll put up a link.

Also--- am putting up a 'quilt' section for my web site in which I will be including pictures of quilt squares, useful links, and a list of names of euthanasia victims. Don't know when it's going to be up, though.
