Take that Trudy!

A lovely quilter friend of mine, Lucia, sent out a call to action last week in an effort to sooth her friend Errick who is battling a cancerous tumor that he has so gallantly named Trudy. You can find out more about Trudy's Arse Kicking quilt here.

She is collecting blocks from sew-er's all over the states (and even across the ponds) to assemble a quilt to give to Errick as he fights Trudy. I think it's an awesome that she's organized this, and even more amazing how many lovely ladies across the country have stepped up and made a block or two (or twenty-one as I just saw in the Flickr pool!)
My blocks for Trudy's Arse Kicking


I whipped up a couple blocks last night, and it was quite a struggle! I came to the realization that I just don't have any manly fabrics in my stash!! All of my blue's are light blues and girly, and the only grays I have are solid Kona's!

Oh well, I used what I could fine (including some Tula Pink Nest!) and am sending these off today to Lucia or tomorrow.

So cute! I love these blocks I'm too anal to try to step outside the block and not have straight lines.
