Taking Action and Piecing Blocks

Quilters are RallyRounders!
They are known far and wide for coming to the aid of those in need.

Once the word is out that a RallyRound Project has been started, quilters head for their Fabric Stashes,  Sharpen their Rotary Blades and FireUp their Sewing Machines.

That's what I did this morning on the first day of Falling Back to Standard Time...after checking in here on CITexas Gal.  I noticed that  Suzanne, the Colorado Lady, was 'Up and At Em' early with an announcement for Quilters to Rally Round the 'Taking Action Project' started by Erin of My Patchwork Life.  Erin's project is to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. 

She is asking for SIMPLE disappearing 4 patch blocks, they are a large block version and quick and easy to make! Erin requested florals and a solid or a fabric that reads a solid. Click HERE to see her post about the blocks.
Here are my Simple Disappearing Four Patch Blocks!
I made two of each for a total of six blocks!
For Real...Quilters Rule!!!

I followed the link to see how that square was made. While I don't quilt, I do so admire quilts and quilters. I love the surprise of discovering that a complex-looking square was created with a very simple trick -- like this one. I love it!

Sue you are a gem! Such a wonderful project for a great cause! Sandy torn through homes and lives and made a mess of so much yet at how it pulled people together! That is the marvelous thing about humans! What a blessing you are! Have a terrific day!
