It reminded me of Tibetan prayer flags. To quote the Wikipedia entry, "Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to 'gods,' a common misconception; rather, the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. Therefore, prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all."
Not such a bad idea really. Don't we quilters send our quilts out into the world full of good wishes for the recipients?
This is a stack of the 38 blocks I have trimmed to 6.5" to make them interchangable with my other 6" orphan blocks. I have two blocks I think I'm going to build up to 8.5" just because I don't want to lose the imagery in the blocks. Now I'm trying to decide whether to put the blocks and the strips away when I've finished with this set or whether to start another set. This has been a fun diversion from the projects on my To Do list but it's not getting those other projects done!
