Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Thought I'd share with you what I have been doing with all the beautiful turquoise and white blocks I received from this swap during 2012.
I've just spent the last two days framing each block to measure 14.5" with three coordinating fabrics. I will be adding sashing and maybe cornerstones, and then it is going to one of my favorite long-arm quilters for her to work her magic (thank you Quiltermomma :-).
A huge 'Thank you!' to each of you that have contributed to this quilt. I will post a photo when it is done-done.
And to all my red and white log cabin swappers, past, current and future - Onward! :-)
I would welcome any input regarding borders, sashing, and cornerstones. And, I should say this, the blocks are laid out in no particular order. I was just anxious to see them together at this point.

It's beautiful. Glad I was one of the exchangers!
Whigrose, all your turquoise and white blocks look fantastic! It's a Pretty color combo. I really enjoy seeing all your blocks together. :-)

**NEW** Trees, Think Fantasy, Think Enchanted, Think fairys and woodland animals. Think brighter fabrics. (Nothing pale or muted.) **TREES** Any kind of block, pieced, embroidery, or applique, your choice.
Judith glad you liked the block, centering the deer was a challenge. Have had the tweed looking fabric for awhile and never could find just the right fabric to use it with. Thought it went perfect with the differnt colors in the center of the block. Yours arrived and It's great, the lime green just pops. Will send a picture later.
Received these fantastic blocks from Terriamn. I absolutely love them. Thank you!
