Nine Patch Split Pattern Added!

Hello Quilters!

I have just uploaded a new pattern to the Quiltville website! You will find a fun and quick split 9 patch quilt that is perfect for using up your precut squares and bricks!

I made this quilt for my youngest sister who is expecting her second child, a boy, any day now! (yes, I am rushing to get the label on and the quilt out the door before his arrival!) I have also included a diagram of a larger version done in patriotic colors perfect for those of you working on Quilts of Valor.

You can find the quilt HERE

I also want to say....Congrats!!! You did it!

Every year my husband Dave cycles with a group of over 300 riders in South Carolina in the 150 mile 2 day ride called the "Tour De Cure" for diabetes. I do my part by providing massage therapy for the cylists after each leg of the ride! This year's Tour De Cure will be held on June 2nd & 3rd, 2007.

Each mile he will ride, each dollar we will raise will be used in the fight to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. This is our 5th year of being involved with the Tour De Cure and I hope it will be our best yet!

This year you helped raise $3,900.00 towards finding a cure for diabetes! We still have a week left until the ride. Can you help us reach our $5,000.00 goal?

If you can spare even $10, please think of someone you know who is living with diabetes daily and all that they go through and all that your donation can do to help. If you know someone with diabetes, PLEASE donate and forward this on to those who have family members with diabetes. Your continued support is necessary to help find a cure for this disease.
