Alycia of Alycia Quilts is having a block drive for Quilts of Valor–she is requesting Scrappy Trip Around the World Blocks so they can be assembled into quilts for wounded soldiers. Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.com has a fabulous tutorial HERE. I am challenging myself (Angela) to do a few of these blocks to send to Alycia (or maybe a whole top if you all want to make some blocks too!) for her collection. Bonnie posted recently about the popularity of the Scrappy Trip-Along on Flickr and Pinterest on her blog…I know several of us at PHXMQG got in on the fun recently…so if anyone wants to try out some of these blocks or make some more in RED, WHITE and BLUE I will be happy to either get them into tops or to mail them off to Alycia for Quilts of Valor.
Maybe you are dying to just make one…and these blocks will add up fast into quilts for our soldiers! Bring the blocks to our February meeting if you get time to make any!
The drive continues until March 8 so if you want to participate you can find more information here.
