Bilal's quilt block

A couple of years ago I submitted a request to have a quilt block made for Bilal, as part of the Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Quilt Project. I didn't hear from them in a while, and actually just pushed it out of my mind. Then today I received an email with this image:

These were all Bilal's favorite things when I requested the block be made, and they pretty much still are! He loves his bears, still enjoys construction trucks and of course, ice cream has to be his favorite food. A perfect block for him. Now I can't wait to see it in the completed quilt.

This is such a great personalized way to raise awareness of congenital heart defects; there are about one and a half thousand heart warriors and angel heart babies represented already. Check out the website to get an idea of the scope of this project.
