I don’t know what to say about these blocks. How can I not be incredibly affected by these? These blocks represent the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, CT, which occurred in 2012, when my daughter was six months old. She shares a name with one of the young victims. Even so many years later, I cannot make any sense of this massacre and feel just raw emotion when I think of it.
Julie, been a while but I’ve managed to catch up with you at last. You’ve made huge progress with your quilt since we last ‘spoke’. It’s looking strong. It must be incredibly demanding emotionally to work with such a powerful subject but you’re doing great.
Thank you for the words of encouragement! It’s getting a little easier to work on these blocks, though I will be happier to have this project off my plate.
