Most quilters have orphan blocks that were left over from making a quilt. Cutting them down and making a Priority Mail Quilt is a great way to use the blocks but another way is to donate the unquilted block to the Global Quilt Project which takes the individual blocks and stitches them together and makes a large quilt that is auctioned off. The money raised is used to provide a "hippo" which is a large blue barrel that can hold 24 gallons of water. This single item can reduce the number of trips that women and girls are required to make each day. This often gives the girls time to go to school.
