Woot! Woot! Blocks are Finished!

 I've been working on my blocks for The 70273 Project. You can read more about the project here.

These are very easy blocks to create...white fabric with a pair of red X's on them. For mine, I glue-basted some ribbon down and then stitched with my machine after the glue had dried. It was a quick "assembly" while watching television...then about an hour of machine sewing. More TV time to clip the threads from the front/back of the blocks.

And, now...have 124 finished blocks to get into the mail. I'm out of white fabric and red will need to get more before I can make more blocks. But, I want to make more!

Every few blocks help...and I want to be part of the creation of these 70,273 blocks! My nephew has Downs Syndrome...and he is in his mid 40's now. Had he been in the same place and time of these victims...he would have been counted in their numbers...I have no doubt. It is the least I can do to honor his create a few blocks in memory of those so like him...
