Nothing like a quick batch of donation blocks to give a sense of acomplishment. These are the first “slab” style, “made fabric” blocks I’ve ever done. They are for the Flood Texas with Love project at Sara’s blog. Thanks, Katie (Katie’s Quilting Corner), for spreading the word about this on Facebook.
My blocks are a little different from the models, because my scraps are already cut into squares instead of random sizes, which I think are both easier and harder to use. I would have preferred to use all strings, but I don’t have enough in the clear, rainbow colors. It did use a lot of scraps, even though you can’t tell from my bins. These are 15.5″ square.
Hope some of you can whip up a few of these to send along for a good cause. These should be beautiful quilts.

Thanks for sharing. I’m going to add it to my list of things to do. I’m afraid June 30 will get here before I know it. Love your blocks.
