Working on a Charity Quilt

I have been gone a lot the last week or so. I went to Chicago to see "The Million Dollar Quartet," and from there I went to visit my son in Arkansas. I didn't get any stitching done while I was gone, but before I left I started working on a charity quilt. The guild to which I belong provides quilts for kids in traumatic situations. We donate quilts to our local police departments to give to children in crisis and to Crisis Connection (our local domestic violence outreach program). This quilt will go to that cause.

I started with fairly traditional blocks (with "wild" fabric) and got bored pretty quickly with that. Now, I'm using up some of my bright scraps to make "off-kilter" log cabin(ish) blocks that I'm adding to the mix. This is what I have done so far.
I've decided it will either cheer some little child right up--or it will scare him to death--I'm not sure which!

Oh no, it's not scary at all. I love it. I love wonky log cabin!
