On the subject of giving, you've probably heard about the fires in Fort MacMurray, AB. Crazy! Well, Stacey from SLOstudio started up a great collection of Maple Leaf Blocks to make quilts for the folks in Fort MacMurray who lost their homes and have been displaced. She put together a tutorial that I used to make these blocks:
I'll be sewing up some of the collected blocks into tops this summer. If you'd like to see all the great blocks submitted so far, check out the #quiltsforfortmac or Katy @lethargiclass's feed on Instagram. So many fabulous blocks are making their way in. Thank you everyone who has donated them!
I thought those blocks were it for me until I saw this Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild Facebook post. Challenge accepted. But I thought "More." First it was going to be a triple, but then I figured out that I can do a quad, which would finish at 81". Yeah!
The minis finish at 3":
Doubles finish at 9":
Triples finish at 27":
One more layer to go!
