Fruit Salad

So, I decided to chop up the fruit!
(aka old beloved Boden skirt)

These blocks are for 2 sisters in foster care who are in danger of becoming hardened and cynical.
The woman who cares for them is very generous and kind.  
She is looking for opportunities to keep them sweet and loving.

It breaks my heart.

It wasn't hard for me to part with said skirt for these young girls.
I could have made the blocks without it.  But for some odd reason I just really wanted this fabric to be in the quilt.  These blocks are all the more special to me because of it.
Now off to the post office to get them mailed in!
