Calling All Squares

Per my post last week, I am getting a quilt made for Baby I.  To make my baby girl's quilt (and to make it extra special) I need the assistance from my friends in the blogosphere.  If you would like to be a part of Baby I's quilt this is what I need from you:

1. Choose ANY 100% cotton fabric that you like of African origin.

2. Pre-wash and press the fabric. Then cut two (2) 8" squares from the fabric.

3. Include your "good wish note" on a 3 x 5 card, being sure to sign and date it.  I will place all your wishes in a scrapbook that will be given to Baby I one day.  If you decide to participate THANKS and I can't wait to see the squares you send!  If you don't participate...I'll still like you anyway, read your blog and let you read mine.  :-)  

Please leave me a message (with your email address if I don't have it) if you would like to participate and I will send you my mailing address.  I only ask that you send the squares by January 1, 2009.  This way it gives me time to gather all squares, send to whoever will make, sit and wait patiently.  Notice I didn't say quietly.  :-)
