Red & White Blocks for Leukemia Project
As I posted on Friday, Clare over at Dordogne Quilter is getting a little red & white block project started to raise awareness about leukemia. For more information or if you're interested in whipping up a few red & white blocks of your own for the cause, please head on over to her blog.
I sketched these out Friday night and made them today. It was fun to play around with my flying geese tool and some Thangles - both for the first time in a year. I made little miniature (4", rather than 8" blocks) for myself, too!
For one of the blocks (Rocky Mountain Puzzle), I found inspiration and instructions at Marcia Hohn's Quilters Cache. What a great resource she has there!
Thanks to Judy at Quilting with Ragdolls for helping me find a fabric I saw on her blog in August - the red I've used most is called Wind and is from the Wuthering Heights collection by 3 Sisters for Moda. The other red is also from that collection and is called Wildflowers. I noticed that KCQuilter has used the fabric, too!
