Donation blocks.

This is a photo of the blocks I've made and sent to Australia for donation. They will be made in a quilt there and given to people that have lost everything in the terrible bush fires that have bin so much in the news.

Pjakkur, our indoors cat has to lay claim to every thing I make. I had forgotten that he was in the house (he is very fond of going out in good weathers) and while I went to get my camera he jumped right in.

I did not read the instructions about the blocks until after I had made a few so ended up making enough for a whole quilt because they are supposed to be 10.5" squares, but I made them 12.5" and no way was I going to cut of 2" of every side. And they are asking for "boy" colors in the quilts, not pink/violet like mine. I blame it on that I'm still in a girly mode after the Double Delight, and , well my unending failure...... unread instructions.

If you are interested you can go here and read all about it.

Have a happy sewing weekend
