Can you donate a block?

I recently read a blog I follow (Linda's Quiltmania) who'd read a blog she follows, who'd posted about this request for quilt blocks.  

Turns out the quilt will be auctioned off and Michele from Quilts From My Crayon Box is trying to collect 12.5" 8-point star blocks in the color scheme of red, white, and black.  Any 8-point star pattern.  She needs 20 to make a twin quilt, and if she gets at least 25 she can make it a queen.  She currently has 16.  Do you have a few minutes and some red, white and black scraps?

Here is the one I mailed off today. 

I threw in the baseballs b/c baseball was her nephew's favorite sport.  Please go read the touching story behind the quilt.  And if you feel inspired, stitch up a block and send it to Michele!


oh..and p.s.:

I don't think I will talk on the phone while I am pinning anymore. Too bad I didn't notice this BEFORE I sewed it up and had to unpick it. :)
