Happy Thanksgiving!

This is a special day to count our blessings.

I'm sharing the Patchwork Heart block I made from mostly Cotton and Steel blues along with one solid and Kona white for the background.

The block is made up of hourglass blocks and half hourglass blocks which meant a lot of points to match when sewing the blocks together.  I promised myself I would not resew any intersections and I didn't.

Megan at Canoe Ridge Creations is collecting the blocks to be made into quilts for those families affected by the recent shooting of two officers in Iowa.  I'll be mailing this one off very soon.

Since I declared this as my One Monthly Goal for November, I'll be linking to the OMG link party with Patty at Elm Street Quilts.

Also linking to Let's Bee Social #152, Needle and Thread Thursday, Fabric Frenzy Friday, Show Off Saturday and Scraptastic Tuesday the 2nd week of December.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
