As Ruta says, "We are all amazing". Agreed.
Here are some pictures from the stitching session held today. Nine of us attended and had a swell time stitching and enjoying seeing all the completed blocks in person.

The completed piece will be raffled off at the TAA Fashion Show event this Fall on Oct. 21, 2012. 
More information will be forthcoming.

From left to right: Karen Borkes, Helen Murell, Marty Young, Sandy Shelenberger, Ruta Marino, Christine Mauersberger, Sue Copeland Jones, Mary Ann Tipple, Jennifer Whitten.
The blocks were stitched to a black cotton background piece by Ruta Marino. Then the ground used Kantha stitching to stitch in-between the blocks and all around the perimeter.
I used my cell phone to take this photo, I would like to post a better (meaning clearer) photo is someone like Ruta or Mary Ann or ??? anyone else has it.

Wish you were here with us!

Karen's hands stitching the binding
Helen works the edge- you can see the blue-stitched lines in-between the blocks.
Mary Ann Tipple works diligently to complete her part!

Sandy Smiles, Ruta and Helen are busy pinning.
Sue Copland Jones stopped in to help bring us to the finish line.

Many Hands Make Quick Work!

The hand-stitched names will be added to the back of the piece.
