Scrappy Log cabins

Today I should have been working on the last 2 rows of my basket quilt but instead a fair bit of chain piecing took place.

The QUILTING GALLERY has put out a call for blocks to be made into quilts for donation to the victims of Hurricane Sandy. All the info can be found here.  

Making blocks is far easier for me being in the Channel Islands as mailing a charity quilt to the USA is an expense I unfortunately cannot afford :(

It was fun & very liberating just stitching away with no plan in mind as these are meant to be scrappy log cabin blocks, something I hadn't done before but certainly will be doing again. There is even a tutorial for making the blocks here.

If you fancy making a few blocks go ahead and register here to either make blocks or assemble a top.In these situations every little bit helps :)

Happy stitching

I think this is a GREAT idea!~ I'm so glad that you posted about this. I did not know of this program. I agree that the postage is far too expensive from where you are. That was my very first thought when I saw this post. I think this is great!~ You are so, so kind.

It is BEAUTIFUL!~ What a cheerful, happy quilt!~~
