So this is the final part of Ruth's Block Exchange Wrap Up.
I don't think I had pictures of everyone's blocks (like I think I missed Roxie's).
This one is Ruth's. It's a Christmas quilt.
We made the square-in-a-square blocks, Ruth made the lighter ones.
I love block exchange for a million reasons:
I always end up making a quilt
(even if it's not for me, and, yes, 17 blocks IS a quilt ... or can be);
I love that it's a great chance to eat great food (of course we have a potluck)
and sometimes I even get there for dinner.
I love that there are as many different quilters in our group as there are quilters in this world: appliquers, hand-sewers, machine sewers, people who like reproduction fabric, modern fabrics, arty quilters, traditional ... everything. I love that whenever I have a question (mostly about quilting) but sometimes about kids, parenting or anything, I trust these women to give me answers ... and they do.
And, now, for the give-a-way:
I pulled fabrics (or similar fabrics) that I used in everyone else's blocks
(11 fabrics in all) and am giving them away.
The smallest piece of fabric is about 8X10," largest pieces are fat quarters.
Leave a comment on this post, and I'll pick a winner on Monday, Oct. 3.
