There are two blocks being collected, one a flag string block and the other a log cabin type block in blue and yellow (links to instructions). They both went together fast and used a good amount of my overflowing strings and scraps, which made me happy.
Pretty soon, I had 25 done.
Check it out if you're inclined to make a few QOV blocks. The drive goes on until October 30—and there are prizes! :)
The flag string blocks are sewn to a foundation fabric. Here's a tip that's helpful for when you sew a large piece of fabric to one corner of the foundation. To keep the two pieces of fabric from flapping apart, use a tiny dab of washable glue stick on the foundation fabric to keep them together.
I kept pushing the trimmings off to the right of the cutting mat as I made blocks (can't be bothered to be tidy when I'm on a productive streak). This resulted in quite the pile.
Victoria of Bumble Beans had asked for Anvil blocks for her charity quilts, so I knocked out a few of those as well. Some inspiration came right from that pile of trimmings.
The pink rose of made fabric with the dragonfly was something I had puttered around with in the spring and just pinned to the design board. It was nice to be able to put it to use.
Next up will be quilting and binding the improv baby quilt, which will be a donation to Project Linus as part of the 100 Quilts for Kids Charity Quilt Drive at Swim Bike Quilt.
