I have made QAYG Strings blocks for Jan Macfadyen of sewmanyquiltstoolittletime.blogspot.com on a couple of occasions. Over the past couple of days I have looked through the small stash of fabric that I have here in NZ and decided a lot of it has hung around too long - it needs to be used up!
I cut all the scraps and unwanted pieces of fabric into strips of varying widths, de-boned one of my husband's shirts which had a worn collar, used bits of batting leftovers and created these blocks to send to Jan to augment her depleted stock of QAYG blocks.
The first two sets of blocks measure 10.5" square, the last set measures 12.5" square. These are the sizes Jan works with to create the many, many quilts she makes for charity. At present she is making quilts for a Woman's Refuge.
Jan welcomes all sorts of donations: quilt tops, orphan blocks, fabric and batting (pieces or scraps), QAYG Strings blocks like the ones I have made. All is explained on her blog, even how to use those small bits of leftover backing and putting them to good use.
Give it a go!
