Anti-Landmine Quilt

As I clean out my office I am finding photos of quilts and quilt blocks I thought I had failed to document.  Here is one from 2002 when I contributed a block to a project to ban landmines.

My block is a simple machine pieced heart which was then machine appliqued to the white fabric square.  I wrote “band the use of land mines” across the top and signed it.

Patty (the quilt organizer) sent these additional photos to me in the winter of 2002.  You can see my block in the  middle area.


Here are some other links I was able to find on the project:

quilt block is lovely and the finished quilt is a good project. Do you knit? lots of knitterly opportunities with sharp pointy sticks and yummy yarns to experiment with! .. and then there's needle felting .. sigh! ;-)
