Blocks for Sandy Victims

I feel so bad about the victims of Hurricane Sandy. When I saw this request for blocks, I was happy to be able to help out. Erin of My Patchwork Life asked for blocks that could be made into quilts for those affected by Sandy. She has directions up on her blog. They're easy and fun. I used scraps and actually love the way they came out. They didn't take long to make and I'm so pleased to be helping out a good cause!

If anyone is interested, go on over to Erin 's blog and join the fun for a great cause! I'd also like to thank Livin! Blue Quilter for bringing this wonderful cause to my attention!

Hope everyone voted today. I'm so glad to be off tomorrow so I can stay up and watch election results. I had a very busy day today but did vote in between errands.

I had a great time this past weekend. I've already posted the Mystery Ride pictures and hope to post A Quilter's Gathering quilt show pictures very soon!

My Slabs

I almost forgot to post the slab blocks I made for our block exchange.  This block is about 8 inches square. It was supposed to be most...
