The Latest Quilt Squares

Here are the latest of Fran's family's quilt squares I have received...


This one is from JavaJackie.  One of my favorite hymns!  Yes Jackie, His grace IS amazing and I believe Fran would agree.


This next one is from Michele.  It represents The Story of Ping.  I love the chinese-writing background and find it amazing just how much the duck looks exactly like Ping himself!


LynnDinKY made these squares.  The first one represents the book, Peter Rabbit.  Pink being my favorite color, I love the second square and think it represents Fran's efforts to raise awareness of breast cancer beautifully.


And lastly, this square was made by Leslie Nelson.  It is for the book, The Clown of God.  We love it!  What a fun way to represent this much-loved Five in a Row book!

I have wanted to learn to quilt. What a neat application/inspiration for making one. What will it be, a wall hanging or bed quilt?? NEAT!

Hi Sister! We are actually putting together 3 quilts and they will all be bed quilts so they can cuddle up in them and remember Fran, if they so chose. Another one we made for a momma who lost her little 3 year old son is on display in her home.

Love these quilt squares! That is definitely an area of creativity where I am inept. I love looking at what other people can do, however. What a great idea!
