because she said "pretty please"!
These blocks will be sent to Australia for Kaite's flood relief quilts. I have been itching to be involved ever since the horrible news of the devastating floods. Once I got started, it was hard to stop. I got 14 blocks done in 4 hours on Friday night. I finished 11 more yesterday. These are so much fun and fast to make. I'm using up fabric that has been in the stash for a very long time! Do you see the Debbie Mumm chickens and crows above? I'm sure they've been in the stash for at least 10 years. It feels good to pass it along and this block pattern is just wonderful for mixing up the scraps.
Why would I send blocks half way around the world? Our visit to Sydney two years ago was so amazing that I can't wait to see the country again. We didn't make it to Queensland last time, but hope to next time. I also have relatives living on the Gold Coast. While they were not directly affected by the floods, I'm sure they have many friends and neighbors who are. Two years ago I sent Project Improv blocks to Australia after the devastating fires near Melbourne. It just feels right to do this.
