Aww, I'm in that group!  I recognized your photo immediately when I saw it in Hot New Topics here.  Kudos to you.  Beautiful work.

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

Way to go sloth003! Not only did you make a gorgeous little quilt and have the courage to leave it out in the world, you inspired the woman and her daughter, as well as a number of folks here, to do something similar.

I was thinking of turning some old clothes into picnic blankets, but I'd end up with way more than I need. Now, I'm thinking that I can leave them in the local park. I'm going to check out the FB page and see if they have tags in multiple languages (the city is very multi-cultural), and if not, I'll see if I can get translations from folks at school!

Thanks for sharing, on so many levels!
