QUILT BLOCKS

I've already found a use for some of the fabric that Katy so kindly sent my way. Yesterday I visited My Patchwork Life blog spot where Erin is asking for help making blocks to be donated to what she is calling "Hurricane Sandy Relief Quilts". You can visit her site and get instructions for making this block. It's called a Disappearing 4 patch.


The one above is made of scrap book paper that I made as a guide. I had to be sure I could actually figure it out before I cut into fabric. I shouldn't have worried about  following the instructions Erin gave since she was very precise and the block is easy peasy.



Here are some that I made this morning. Now all I have to do is get them to the post office so they get to Erin. She and some of her friends are taking it from there.

So, if you want to help in the making of "Hurrican Sandy Relief Quilts" please visit My Patchwork Life and sign up to make a few blocks or send a Paypal donation for buying quilt batting. Your help can really make a different to someone who could use a little help right now.

Remember what day it is today and whatever you do don't forget to get out there and vote. I want to wish you a wonderful day and as always, thanks for stopping by.

Dearest Maddy,
Oh, how sweet of you to do something you can do for the people who were affected. I remember I did a little when tsunami hit in Tiohoku area in Japan.

I did follow about this important news, my friend. I admire the system in your country that you can vote directly for your president, which we cannot.

So sorry my belated commet, I am doig fine and catching up my friends' posts really hard p;)

Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan to my dear s in America, xoxo Miyako*

Maddy, I love your Dissappearing 4 Patch blocks. And what a sweetie you are to donate them. If I can find my sewing machine and table, and fabric, I will make some to send, too!
Hugs

Wonderful! You know I used to quilt all the time when I was younger, but my sewing machine is not exactly up to par at the moment. Wonderful way to help out those who were affected by the hurricane. :-)
