I've been in Florida on vacation so missed a post for Scraptastic Tuesday on Tuesday. But it's not too late.
Today I used some waste triangles to make a modified and very scrappy Ocean Wave block I'll call Gulf Waves since we were on the Gulf Coast of Florida.
I have a whole box of waste triangles that need to be used up so I just cut some 2.5 inch red solid squares and started chain sewing waste triangles to the corners of the red squares. I usually try to make a couple of Quilts of Valor every year and at least a dozen quilts for Quilts Beyond Borders and Wrap a Smile so Gulf Waves will be a donation quilt when all is said and done.
Speaking of Gulf waves...we took our two ten-year-old granddaughters with us to Florida and they found lots and lots of Starfish. All of the persons visiting from foreign countries gathered around the granddaughters and the English speaking folks learned from them how to find their own Starfish in the Gulf. (The granddaughters are better public speakers than grandma). Some people found their own Starfish, lots of people took photos of themselves with Starfish and all of the Starfish, as far as I could see, were returned to the Gulf to live another day.
