In a short time, I prepared the structures of the block in my mind. I should use a special fabric as the focus of the block. It was my dear Father's an old necktie with lighthouse design on it. My retired naval commender Dad had been used that mentioned necktie long years at the different parts of the world when he locationed. Some of my Followers may remember that I've have created another block with my Dad's necktie piece with a Nautical theme some time ago.
Afterwords I sent block to Brigitte in 2004, I received a kind letter from Dortmund branch of Unicef along with a lovely bookbinder with the print of my block on it.
I must admit that I totally forgot about ttis Memory Quilt till I received a letter from Brigitte two weeks ago. She was telling that "Textile Memory Quilt" was done and its book published in German and English versions. I immediately placed an order to have several of them and they arrived here safely. I got so impressed when I saw the photos of all those wonderful blocks from 24 countries and read their individual stories. Total 86 Ladies and 4 Gentlemen from five continents made this quilt possible with the dimensions of 3.50m(wide) X 2.20(height) for the children of our world:))
An important part of the profit of this book will be used for the benefit of the children by UNICEF.
