    Quilt blocks for the ATWQB

    These are the blocks I have made for the Around the World Quilting Bee. It is my first swap and I am loving it so far. This is also a test to see if I can manage to get a picture posted here.[attachment=3:1eqw922g]IMG_4827.JPG[/attachment:1eqw922g] [attachment=2:1eqw922g]IMG_4802.JPG[/attachment:1eqw922g] [attachment=1:1eqw922g]IMG_4890.JPG[/attachment:1eqw922g] [attachment=0:1eqw922g]IMG_5154.JPG[/attachment:1eqw922g]

        Re: Quilt blocks for the ATWQB

        Thank you. We each made a starter block and then mailed it off to the next person. When you get the block you decide on a pattern and colors that you think will go well with the block, make it, and send it on. It is a lot of fun. I get to test out patterns and color ways that I would not normally use for myself. You can check out all of the blocks on the Fickr site if you have time. I have made 8 so far. There was a back up getting them out of Brazil, but that problem has been solved, and it looks like there is a big batch coming my way soon. I can hardly wait.

                These blocks were made with patterns I found in the "Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks" books by From Marti Michell. I have volumes 1 & 2. They were about $10 each and have a ton of block patterns and design tips in them. She also includes full size paper templates for the block patterns. I LOVE these things! They have improved my quilting so much. I now have pointy points instead of ones that are eaten up by the seam allowances.

                  Those are really cool! How fun!
                  To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.
