House Blocks for California Fire Survivors

I read about about a block drive to make quilts for those affected by the wildfires in California. You can find all the necessary info HERE.

The blocks are ten inch house blocks. I decided to fussy cut pieces for the windows.

This is a scrap from an old library print from Connecting Threads. Every town needs a library, right?

Oops! That’s not right!

Much better. I kept with the literary theme for my second block as well.

I thought kids would enjoy this. If you would like to help, close class on the link above for details. Have a great day!
