Sew Some Love Sunday - Compassion Quilt Block Drive - Three Blocks in Three Weeks???

Welcome to another edition of Sew Some Love Sunday!!  Cynthia @ Quilting is more fun than Housework runs a Compassion Quilt program for her local hospital.  The most recent Block Drive is for Veterans in shades of red, white and blue.  I have a fair amount of patriotic scraps so wanted to help out.

I took the slow route in completing these blocks.  I cut block parts one afternoon a few weeks ago, sewed units another day and finished up the large Churn Dash block last week.  The other night I stitched up the little blocks.


One of the fabrics I selected includes a bit of gold for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge, too, as it's the only YELLOW sewing I've done thus far!  :o))


I read patriotic and focused on the patriotic prints, completely forgetting that she wanted to stick to white-based neutrals for the blocks.


She is flexible and will find a way to use whatever you send her!

Here are the FOUR blocks I made:


The two 4-Patch blocks will need to be replaced, or forwarded to Cynthia for some other project, as I misread the cutting instructions.  Whoops!  I'm sure she will find a use for them.  The blocks will be going in the mail on Monday or Tuesday.

Until next time...
SEW Some Love!!!


  1. Lovely patriotic blocks. I'm sure they will be appreciated.

  2. I love your little blocks! I'm sure she'll use all of them. ~Jeanne
