My contribution to the Sandy quilts

Michele Foster from the Quilting Gallery appealed to her large following to contribute scrappy log cabin blocks, which would be assembled by other volunteers. The quilts will be donated to Sandy storm victims. Though I am very busy with sewing projects and moving house in the near future, I could not turn a blind eye to this project.

The blocks are to be around 11" and then an additional 2" dark border so that the blocks can be cut in a wonky style by the team leaders. Here is my modest contribution out of all the 1,800 Sandy blocks being made at this moment.

I enjoyed making these very random blocks using up my left-over strips. After having tried this approach of just pulling out arbitrary fabrics, I think I still prefer some kind of color coordination. It would seem that I cannot lose control in the sewing department just yet! The blocks are off to New Hampshire in tomorrow's mail.

Have a free-spirited day!
