Rainbow I Spy Block Drive at Threaded Mess
Natalie writes Threaded Mess and she is hosting a block drive for quilts that she will donate to her local NICU. She is asking that people send in 12.5" blocks made up in a single color (novelty prints, tone on tone prints and solids). The blocks need to be made using a Square in Square pattern.
Anna Maria Horner did a one-page .pdf with instructions on how to make the 12.5" Joseph's Square in Square block and you can download it here.
She is hosting her block drive in 3 rounds. I missed round one which closed on 8/30 but I'm going to try to participate in rounds 2 (closes 9/30) and 3 (closes 10/30).
Here are my first batch of blocks for Round 2.
I spy pink roses ...
And I spy pink ships...
I so wish that I had remembered to cut the ships on point... but that ship has sailed. (GET IT - SHIP! Ok, I know, lame.)
I'm going to put these in the mail to Natalie within the next couple of days and hopefully I'll be able to send her a couple more before the month is out. This is an open block drive so you can skip over to Threaded Mess and join the fun!
