Join me in supporting Regina

My friend Regina has launched an effort in tribute to her mom, who passed away earlier this year. Please join me in making and sending some four patches to Regina. 

From Regina's blog

The concept is simple - Make a 4 Patch... Make a Donation... Make a difference.

How to Help:1.  Make light-dark 4 patch block(s) using 2 1/2” squares (blocks should finish at 4 1/2” square).      Use any colors you like for your “dark” but please try to use white or ivory for your “light.”
2.  Send the finished block(s) to:  
4Patches4Hope c/o Regina Arlauckas, PO Box 363  Churchville, NY  14428
3.  Please consider making a $4 donation for each block you make to the American Cancer Society via the link at The American Cancer Society or enclose a check to the American Cancer Society with your blocks. (Please do NOT enclose cash and be sure your checks are to the American Cancer Society.)
4.  The goal is 1000 blocks and $4,000 by February 28, 2012.
5.  Received blocks will be assembled into “comfort quilts” and donated to the Anderson Medical Center in Anderson, SC and the Pluta Cancer Center in Rochester, NY.  
6.  Each block donated will enter your name into a drawing for “participation prizes.”
7.  Donations of backing fabrics, batting and services are also appreciated.If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I'm hoping to get some made at retreat in a few weeks. And I'm hoping that some of the gals there will make some, too. :)
