Soldier Boy Star Blocks Needed

STAR BLOCKS for a Fallen Soldier
UPDATE JAN. 2015,  If you like this post, please know that this request is no longer open as of Jan. 2015, HOWEVER, Please contact your local Quilts of Valor or other patriotic organization for a place to send quilt blocks and/or quilts for our military men and women, veterans (current and retired), etc...
 Two Star Blocks I made for a Blogging Friend, 
John'aLee's daughter, Tory was to be married a few weeks ago to her Soldier Boy, Chris.
One week before Chris was to leave Afghanistan and return home, Chris was killed.  Another Hero's Life sacrificed for FREEDOM.
We Give Honor to you Chris.  
Our hearts are heavy for Tory, Tory's family, your mother, your entire family, and all your many friends.

Soft Reds & Blues are colors requested

John'aLee has humbly asked her friends to send Star Blocks so that she can make quilts as a way of dealing with their grief.  Here is the link with all the info you need if you decide to give of your time to donate a Star Block to this family.

One of our Friends is in Need and and has asked for our help.  I for one made the two blocks above but since she's extended the deadline to Nov. 31st  I'll be making more.  I enjoyed making these blocks while I prayed over each stitch in hopes it would bring comfort to this grieving family.  Can you even imagine the tragedy of losing a son, fiance', and future son-in-law in the matter of days??

Blocks received so far!!  Amazing!!

Please pass this request on to your Blogs and Facebook pages if you feel moved to do so.  Also, go to John'aLees's blog and leave her a note if you plan to make a Star and tell her I sent you!  She will be so grateful as will I.  I have some of the most caring and considerate  followers so I know many of you will answer this call.  
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    by them. But unlike their blank counterparts, custom lanyards also can

    aim of presenting discerning news and analytic thinking of pressing topics for this celebrity frippery.
