FRIDAY NIGHT WITH FRIENDS....California Thomas Fire Charity blocks.

How I spent the first Friday night of 2018...
Sewing, sewing & sewing.....

Carole from put out a request to help after the devastating fires in California.
It was easy to make a few 12" blocks and post them over the waters... 
If you want to help out here is the pattern 

 This is my favourite block

Looking at this block in mono tone really helps for placement. 
The green spots as the middle block really fits in well. Maybe I should have done them all like this. You can really see the dark & light sides..

I managed to get 9 blocks done. They are in the mail now.

 Change the colour to see the values of the patches. I think I'll be happy with them.

If anyone else wants to help out have a look at this post.
These blocks are easy to make and uses up scraps too.
