Binky Blocks

I'm helping get a new Binky Patrol chapter up and running. Not as an administrator but as a contributor of quilts and blocks. This chapter is in central Ohio, and its organizer, Lisa, wants to concentrate on getting quilts to foster kids in her area. I'm all for helping with that.

I sent her two completed quilts, and now I am helping stock her collection of blocks. She is asking for certain colors every month. June is red/white/blue. Here is what I made:

8 pinwheels, 12 4-patches



and 2 of these babies, for a total of 22 blocks. I can't promise that many every month, but today I felt motivated.



Hey -- can you believe how close I am getting to retirement??

Retirement this week!! my wish for you is that you are as happy in retirement as I am. And I love your new machine and table. It looks like you have been putting it to good use.

What a great bunch of blocks--wow, you were motivated :)

Your new title is inching ever closer. Hope your last few days are full and happy--for the most part!

Awesome post Carol! I sure do appreciate all the support you've offered my charity. I can't wait to see those blocks either - they are awesome! And you've got until the end of July so maybe you'll even finish a few more. LOL!
