Sewing for Boston

It has been fun seeing all the cool blocks and flags that people are creating in support of the victims of the Boston bombings, hasn't it? I dedicated all day Wednesday and a little of Tuesday to sewing for the cause and here's what I accomplished:

Starburst Cross block

Capital T block

Not as fun as on point, but I still like it! #quiltsforboston
Block #3 from the Virtual Quilting Bee at Diary of a Quilter, tutorial here
I added borders to get the block to 12.5"
One more. Now to make one with all my scraps...#quiltsforboston
My fifth block, made using leftover HSTs from the Capital T block

The end. #quiltsforboston
And my final block, made using scraps from the previous 5. This one went together really quickly since most of my scraps were already rectangles with at least one similar dimension.

 I had just a little time left on Wednesday to make this flag, but I'm hoping to make a couple more next week. We had friends over last night and my parents are coming for a quick weekend visit later today, so yesterday was devoted to cleaning up this neglected house and today is cooking! Have a great weekend!
