Hurricane Sandy Help! Appeal

I woke up to torrential rain this morning, drove to the supermarket along flooded roads but knew I was going to be able to come home, put the lunch in the oven, do a bit of sewing and snuggle down with the family.  Others are not so lucky, and an hour here or there, indulging in what us fabric-loving-types like doing anyway, will make a difference to others who are not so lucky right now.

If you have already made some of these blocks, see you tomorrow!

If you have seen other blog posts about these blocks and not made any yet, why not?

If you haven't heard of the appeal put out by the lovely Jennifer of Knotted Thread, then please check out her initial post and the flickr group and then stitch up a block or two, pretty please.

Scrappy blocks for the Hurricane Sandy Help! appeal

These 4 took me less that an hour from selecting the fabrics to final seam press.  The tutorial to follow is nice and clear, and another method of making HSTs to add to my repertoire, bonus.

Are you still here?  Shoo!  You know what you have to do xxx

  1. Nice post Hadley - your blocks are lovely and look great together. You could easily make a quilt top of these in an afternoon.

  4. Thanks for spreading the word! I have already made and given three baby quilts to families in my town that have lost it all. The clean up has begun.

  6. So glad you said something! I had not heard of this, but am hopping over to KT right now. The electricity was just turned back on in my home house. They're happy to have it back!

  7. I've not got to it yet 'cos I'm only just home ;o) Just catching up, and love what you've been up to, but a tad confused as I had Danny's strip to do next and then Helen's, did you miss one?

  8. I got the info from the 4x5 Modern Quilting Bee ladies, and everybody should do some. They are so easy and fun to put together. I had to stop myself after five, so I can get them in the mail!

  12. Bah, I read about these blocks, but by the time I get to the sewing machine I've forgotten all about my good intentions - keep nagging / reminding!
