A Global Quilt Project

I received a letter from Amy Allen, The CEO of Global Change Inc, the other day asking for a couple of quilt blocks to be made for a fund raising quilt. These are the two I have made, 9.5" sq and 12" sq. They both have New Zealand birds in the centre and are surrounded by fabric from a New Zealand fabric jelly roll my son gave me for Christmas. The darker one is the larger, both blocks have 2.75" centres.

The quilt is being made to be auctioned in conjunction with World Toilet Day on November 19th and squares are to be received by August 31st. If anyone is interested in being part of this project, email me and I will pass on Amy's letter. My email is not clickable unfortunately, as it would be harvested by spam bots, but you can read it and type it in :-)

Lovely blocks Janice. I too got that email but have yet to decide if I will do any as I am busy working on local charity quilts.
