Memory Blanket Blocks

Tried to make some blocks that are bright and fun, something that children would like

This one turned out a little wild and crazy!

 
 
I have discovered how quickly I can make 6″ blocks compared to 12″. One-fourth the size…. I should be a little quicker!

I’m taking time out from my other projects to make some blocks for a very special project. One of the ‘Yarnplayer’ ladies is making blankets for three young children who have lost their mother. I try to imagine what that must be like, for such young children, and I just can’t. I was 47 when my own mother died, and it was still so hard! And so, I am happy to join in this special project, hoping to help bring a little comfort into their lives.

Used patterns from some of my favorite books for these.
