Australia bound

By last night I had sewn together 12 blocks and pretty well used up the strips.  But this morning when I checked the pile of strips I could have sworn that they had multiplied overnight!  I began again and put together another 4 for a total of 16 blocks which I hope to mail to Australia  this afternoon.  

16 blocks laid side by side.  Check out Jan's blog to see how she puts them together
Jan, the lady who will receive them (her blog is "Sew little time - too many quilts")  is putting donated blocks together and arranging for them to be handed out to flood victims.

Wonderful, Diane!! I'm sure your squares will make a quilt to comfort.

Lovely blocks, Diane! And I think you’ve hit upon a Truth about our stashes. They DO multiply at night when we are not around. I know this! That explains why I have a bottomless stash! Hugs, Cathy

Lovely blocks! And for a good cause. As for those scraps in our scrap bins... I know for a fact that they multiply during the night. My scraps are now taking up two bins!
