|4 donation blocks|
the victims and first responders of the mass shooting there one month ago. I heard about their block collection from Julie who blogs over at Julie's Quilts. To see the beautiful donation quilt she made - click here.
The block pattern they are requesting is from the tutorial for "Greyscale Quilt" which can be found over at Cluck, Cluck, Sew. The hardest part was figuring out the cutting instructions to make the A blocks and the B blocks. But once that was done, the sewing was really enjoyable.
It made me smile to notice that one of my fabric choices matched my little scissors! What are the chances of that?!?
While sewing the first blocks, I heard on the news about another mass shooting, this time in Texas. I just kept on sewing. We also had a shooting in my quiet little neighbourhood this past week, and thankfully no one was injured. What else can a quilter do about these tragedies, but sew, and make quilts to comfort those affected by the violence?
These blocks will go in the mailbox tomorrow to hopefully arrive before the deadline of November 15th.
