Hope this is the right info - you want:
8"x8" squares in black, red or white
Made with soft yarn...something washable like Encore.
The deadline for the squares is April 1.
The semester ends in May and you would like to get the blankets put together and sent out before then

I will be changing the date from April 1st. I will know for sure next Tuesday. We will have more time. I am working with someone from the college to help get these to the students and possibly some more publicity for some more help. Thanks Everyone.
