Bushfire Quilt Project

As you may know by now about the devastating fires that swept through Victoria, Australia last weekend that took many lives and properties. My heart goes out to the people who have lost their homes and their loved ones, also pets and livestocks.

I wanted to help and so have joined the Bushfire Quilt Project headed by Tia of Camp Follower Bags. Tia has set up a Flickr group... take a look if you're interested in helping out. All she asked for is for us to make a couple blocks of wonky stars, then in turn, she will finish them into quilts to donate to the bushfire victims. Sounds easy enough....

I pulled out one light fabric and some scraps yesterday.... the result.... 6 blocks done. These stars are quick and easy.
It's Bonnie's Maverick Stars pattern but at 12-1/2" unfinished blocks.

I made up 6 more blocks tonight and thinking maybe do six more blocks tomorrow night. Instead of sending blocks to Tia, my plan is to send a finished top.

What a worthwhile project. I hate to think of all the people and animals who have died in this.
