Beads of Courage Bags and Rainbow Blocks


As you know I love to make Beads of Courage bags.  Since March I have made 44 bags.  I have another 11 bags that I need to finish.  I had a couple of special requests for certain fabrics.  Hopefully all these bags will bring smiles to children.
I did find time to make a couple purple and orange rainbow blocks.  I need to add some green stars to the collection.

My current scrap project is a basket of 2" squares.  I saw a block I liked that would be perfect for my 2" squares.  Go to Random Thoughts Do or "Di" to see the posted.
One block done.  Who knows how many more until the basket is empty.

I did make 16 patch blocks but still haven't found time to sew the rows together.

  2. You have been busy! I like the different centers for your rainbow star blocks. Beads of Courage is a wonderful organization. Your bags will most definately bring a smile to children's hearts.

  3. I just want to say THANK YOU for participating in the Beads of Courage program! When DS2 was in the hospital in 2013, he received beads for various milestones during his treatment, but collected them in a plastic baggie. Your bags are SEW much nicer than that!!
