Do you read the Jolly Jabber, the blog at the Fat Quarter Shop? So many ideas and great projects! I spotted their Wishes Quilt Along yesterday and couldn't resist participating. Make A Wish is a fabulous organization and I want to do my small part to help.
I am using stash fabrics and just happened to have a bin ready to go from a different project I just couldn't get in to. Not having enough of any one white fabric, my blocks will be be made with a variety of whites.
It really took very little time to make the first 14" block. I followed their basic instructions. Instead of cutting 8 different fabrics, I chose to use 4. After step 2, I had 4 extra half square triangle halves and couldn't toss them into the scrap bin! So I cut the pieces to make another block. If nothing else, it will live on the back of the quilt. Or I can make an extra block each month and have 2 really cute quilts to donate.
