I have completed 18 blocks of the 30 needed for a QAYG string quilt for the bushfire victims. I have never done this method before but am finding it very easy. Not only that but I am using up mega scrap from my strip boxes. I actually have 2 empty large shoes boxes now and I haven't seen an empty one of these for years. Its incredible to think you make a lovely quilt completely out of scraps, so I am certainly 'stashbusting' here. A few of my friendship group are going to get together on Wednesday and again on Friday in the hopes of getting another few finished. Another mad firebug has been at work in the Otway Region which is closer to where I am but still a fair way away, but considering how quickly the fires spread last week one can never be sure. Precautions, precautions, I think are the order of the day at the moment.
