Default Block Drive Blocks

It's been a while since I've posted a picture of anything I've made. I'm part of an every other month block drive for quilts for dying patients who don't have time to enter into Hospice. The host makes quilts for these patients & then the quilt goes home to the family after their loved one is gone. She has a block drive every 2 months (giving us a pattern to use & color theme). We can make as few as one block or as many as we want. The blocks are then sent to her & she arranges them into quilt tops & quilts them & then passes the quilts on to the Chaplain in the hospital to distribute. One of my blocks may show up in one quilt or she might use several of mine in one quilt...just depends on how they play with the other blocks that she has.
I've put together 9 blocks so far & they are on my design board before sewing them into individual blocks. So far, I like what I've put together for blocks. Thanks for looking.

Very nice quilt block. When my mom passed last week we were gifted with 2 quilts. One for me and another for my sister. They do make a difference. I am not sure what I will do with mine yet.
Just know you do make a difference

Julia, it is nice to hear that they are appreciated. I make and donate to hospice. They are not particular about what size I make. That makes it easier on me. I just make whatever pattern I like. Depending on how much fabric I have on hand decides the finished size. They also ask for baby quilts. Nice fall colors in your blocks osewme

I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. I pray for peace & comfort for you & your sister. Thank you so much for the input on the quilts. Every now & then the host of the project will be asked by a love one to share their feelings about receiving the quilts & it warms my heart to know that they have helped the grieving family & that I played a small part in helping in that way. Hugs!

What a perfectly simple but interesting pattern for these donation blocks. They whisper autumn.
