  1. thank you, thank you, thank you.
    My name is Jessica and I was born with a CHD, tricuspid atresia with a VSD and ASD. I just recently found out im in heart failure and have to have another open heart surgery. Hopefully sometime by the end of this month. Ive always knew there where other people with CHD's but never tried to find them until now. Until i found out about my second open heart. So i began looking and are find very shocking facts about CHD's. Like only 30 cents of every dollar donated to the american heart association actually goes to the American heartt association and only one penny out of the 30 cents goes to CHD studies. Wow. So im not exactly sure how the CHD awarness quilt project works but i know it helps and i want to thank you for caring. thank you so much!

  2. Just found your blog :o)
    My daughter's quilt square is: quilt #54 space 1C (once it's completed). I recently put together a picture slideshow with pictures of my daughter which includes a snapshot of her quilt block and posted it on YouTube.

  4. Hi,my angel Daniel Philip Green is on quilt 17, Row 1 block 5 and I have a blog http://dhgorguk.blogspot.com which includes some information about an awareness campaign I am undertaking this year to celebrate what would have been his 21st birthday. It's very special because it is also my 50th birthday the same day.

    Having Daniel changed my life even though he was only with us 14½ weeks and I have been invovled with Down's Heart Group www.dhg.org.uk ever since. It would be great if you could add a link to their website too for all those whose kids with CHD have Down's Syndrome.

    Thank you and thank you for my son's block, although I am in the UK and will probably never get to see it in person it means a great deal to me that you included him as part fo this wonderful project.
