    What have you made with your blocks?

    Just wondering what everyone is going to do with their blocks.
    Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

    Well, Megan, since you asked . . . how about maybe a QUILT?
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      I got my blocks from Suzi yesterday and they are so great. I also admired how Suzi quilted hers. She did them individually and will put the top together after quilting. What a great idea. So much easy than maneuvering a big quilt through the machine.

      This is going to be a really pretty quilt! You guys did such a good job.

      These swaps are really fun. Thanks Suzi for doing all the work for us.

        I finished!




        We had 25 blocks. I took mine apart and used it as the corners since I used leftover fabric from my blocks as the border.



        The quilt measures about 60" by 84"


        wow, those pictures are big.

        Before you speak,
        T - is it TRUE?
        H - is it HELPFUL?
        I - is it INSPIRING?
        N - is it NECESSARY?
        K - is it KIND?

                    To quilt or not to quilt?.....what a ridiculous question!

                      I made 2 quilts with my blocks. They were donate to a small country town senior's home. My SIL volunteers there and she loves to have a quilts to welcome a new resident. Both of them will be well loved.

                            I made a beautiful graduation quilt for my granddaughter, Tiffany. It was so much fun. I quilted the blocks with different stitches and different threads. What a wonderful challenge this was. Her eyes lit up huge!!!!! Thanks everyone for such great blocks. I'll put the photo in my album so you can all enjoy how your blocks came out. I have a few left that I'm going to make table runners out of.
