Moving it Forward Monday -- Orphan Block Hearts -- OMG

I am setting my OMG quilt this month to be these beautiful gifted orphan blocks.  These hearts are from Linda who blogs at Art In Search..  Linda puts together beautiful comfort quilts.  These "Hearts Galore" were blocks given to Linda.  She put them up for adoption.  The orphan block adoption was hosted by Cynthia's blog, Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.  This quilt will be donated to Happy Chemo as an H2H quilt.  Emily from Em's Scrap bag will be distributing the quilts.  H2H stands for Hands to Help.  It's a comfort quilt charity drive that is driven by Sarah Craig at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Geez... I feel like a name dropper, but when all these quilters work together, a beautiful quilt gets made and donated to someone who needs some comfort.  It's like getting a hug from all of the above!...and don't forget Jolene.  She is Linda's granddaughter that picked my name from a hat.  She is part of the next generation in the process!

I'm calling this quilt "My Heart Skips a Beat" because of the blank blocks without hearts in it.  I don't usually name my quilts.  Here's what the layout looks like so far:

I am setting this quilt as my OMG goal for April.  That should give me plenty of time to show progress at the H2H linky party on April 16th and a finished quilt by May 21.  Both linky parties will be on Sarah's blog, Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  It's not too late to join the H2H fun -- and prizes!
Patty from Elm Street Quilts is our hostess for OMG.  Check out all the fun there!  You can find the April linky party here.  Look at the cute Easter Eggs in the button!!!
