Scraptastic Tuesday - Charity Blocks

My guild, Maritime Modern Quilt Guild, is making charity quilts this year for our local children's hospital (they require quilts for babies up to teenagers).  We are making square-in-square block using this tutorial.  I dug into my scrap bag on the weekend and made 38 blocks -- it didn't take much time at all.  Linking up my blocks with Scraptastic Tuesday.



Here are my blocks, all from my stash of 2.5-inch strips and my scrap bag.


These blocks are so easy and quick to piece.  I'll be making some more, as I'm halfway to the 80 blocks needed for one quilt.

Those are great fabrics for a scrappy quilt. Bright and cheerful. I think being able to use scraps to create charity quilts are the best use of fabric ever. Nothing like brightening someones day with a forever hug.

It is a great block for stash busting and an easy one for charity quilts. I'm still amazed you stitched up 38 of them......wow.

What a perfect pattern choice for making these quilts! Your blocks are fun, bright, and colorful, and will put a smile on any child's face. When I get back next month, I'll start one, too! XO
