Oh how I love this quilt!
It is beautiful!!!! Have I told you that I did not make this quilt? Many, many women made this quilt. Caring and sharing women made this quilt. I love them for that!
This quilt will be given to a girl that my mother works with in the foster care system in Florida. She has been going through a lot lately. Hitting those uncertain years of 12-14 years old without a family that cares for you and helps you through it is really hard. My mother is there for her, but often the girl's love looks like hate because her heart is so wounded and guarded.
If you're the praying type, please pray for her. You can call her "U." (I can't share her name.) Pray for her heart to be softened and open to God's love, the only one that won't fail her. And please pray for my mom, that God would give her wisdom and perseverance with U.
A great big hug and Thank YOU to all those helped by sending me blocks to make this possible.
Here is a list of those who helped with this quilt (in no particular order.) Won't you visit their blog or flickr? Tell them what an awesome job they did on their Charming Star block.

And if you'd like to join the flickr group Quilting for Kids, please do. I'll be asking for more blocks soon. This time for a boy in red, black, white, and grey. More on that later. But go ahead and join the group so you'll be informed.
The Garden Fence Quilt is 1/3 of the way done...but my machine is being repaired. :( Very sad. I broke a needle and couldn't find all of it. I think it went into the machine and can't find it! After Thanksgiving I'll get that baby out right away!
