Wow, you ladies have sure inspired me with all the charity opportunities that abound. Truly. I even thought, and I hate to admit it, and if Cynthia reads this, she will burst out laughing (again), "Maybe I should keep these squares and the black and sew up a quilt for (insert name of awesome charity here). Seriously.
However, I slapped myself up side the head, and said, nope, woman, you have another set with which you can do just that!

Comment Number 7, JoEllen!
How did I come up with 17 when there are 21 comments? Well, 4 commenters, you will notice, did not want the blocks, just made a comment. So they were out of the drawing. When I figure out, with the New Bloggers' Hop help I'm getting (notice some more changes?) how to number my comments, giveaways will be much easier. So I just skipped them in my numbering system and counted down to #7 by hand, (not including Linda C or Cynthia) which meant JoEllen won. Thanks, Linda, for suggesting (reminding me, duh) to insert her comment. ALS silent auction, a most-worthy charity.
So, JoEllen, I'll shoot you an email in a few minutes, get your address, and I can send these off to you asap! My only hope is to please please send me a photo of the finished quilt!
Thank you to everyone for writing your comment, for telling me about your charity or charitable ideas for a quilt. And thank you to Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework, for dreaming up this great idea. There is a great site, The Minimalists, that Lara of Buzzin' Bumble sent me during a conversation we were having, and this site is well worth a look. Take a look at their post on an expensive watch purchase or The Minimalist Game. Thought-provoking. Purging, getting rid of stuff one no longer uses or needs is rather liberating!
