Another one of my goals for 2018 is to set aside a week out of each month to work on donation quilts. Kat's Covered in Love project provides comfort quilts to the families of East Texas hospital patients who have passed away. For this year's block drive they are asking for 10.5" string blocks with no restrictions on colors or prints. (If you're interested in sending a few blocks their way check out the details HERE.)
For the foundations I'm using up some fabrics I doubt I will ever use for anything else. You know - those fabrics you don't know what you were thinking when you bought them, or those mystery pieces you don't even remember having at all. Starting with a center strip and then using the flip-and-sew method I added strings working towards the corners.
They look like a real mess, not only from the fronts .....
..... but also from the backs.
Until they're trimmed.
I finished ten blocks this week, but I hope to have more made before the end of next month when I mail them off.
I'll try to incorporate some not-so-bright pieces in the rest of the blocks. Oh, who am I kidding? No, I won't!
I'm getting my Whoop Whoop on and linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Check out some of the other bloggers' work there!
Also linking up with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is More fun that Housework.
