Victoria collects these blocks and makes quilts for Cancer patients with them. She collects blocks from anyone who is willing to help. You can find a tutorial for these blocks on her blog.
Victoria is into making your own fabric from scraps. I did try the process for 2 of my blocks but it didn't give me the warm and fuzzies. I will admit that the blocks do look pretty cool, just not my thing. The second pair of blocks I made was with fun fabric.
I had never made this particular block before and was quite pleased with the result. These were mailed out yesterday.
These blocks are 12 inch finished.
