Australia bush fire blocks

Lately, I have been busy making blocks and hexagons to send to Australia.

These are my blocks that were sent to Janet for quilts. The quilts will be given to homeless folks from those crazy bush fires.These hexagons and a pin cushion are for Robyn. Not only is the need for quilts in demand, but also craft projects for those folks that need something to do with their hands as time drags on. Hexagons are a good project as all that is needed is a needle and thread and a pair of scissors.

The hexagon project will be on-going and I'll be making up more each month to send to Australia for as long as they are needed.

So, if you want to help out, just visit those blogs. There are other blogs as well that are requesting help, but I'm just associating with these two.
Have a great day!

What a great idea - sending hexagons. I will put some together too. I know I always have to have a project going and this sounds like a nice way to give a fellow quilter something to take her mind off all the tragedy. I will check out Robyn's blog.

I have already sent a quilt top to one individual collecting quilt tops and she will finish them to give to a family.
