The Christmas Cottage Block Exchange has ended and I have received my blocks. It was great fun - I got to play with some new fabrics and old scraps, test my creativity and meet a lot of very nice people. The best part for me was making some great new friends. I would do another exchange in a heartbeat! Now comes the fun part - getting to decide what to do with the blocks! First I want to thank all of those whose blocks I received: Sherri, Ruthie, Lyda, Kathi, Carrie, Nanette, Shauna, Deborah, Amanda, Pam and Mary! Your blocks are all delightful and fantastic!This is just one example of the great ideas - I just love the fabrics and the little appliquéd snowman is just fantastic!
Check out the detail!
Here are a few of the others. I’ll save the rest for after I've finished putting them together!
While we were at the Squash House this past weekend, I managed to find a few minutes to pop into the local quilt store. I picked up some really cute red and white Makower fat quarters, which I believe are a new line and a few Sandy Gervais Merry & Bright fat quarters. When I got home I was certain I carried the bag into my studio, but I can’t find it anywhere! I have a sneaky feeling they are now part of the dumpster out back. Sniff. That will teach me to be so hasty in putting things away!
