    Back in 2009, I participated in a Fall Block Exchange. It was lots of fun and I was so dazzled and excited when "my" blocks arrived. Some of them are way too complicated for me and it was certainly interesting to see the different colors and fabrics for fall. Well, like so many of us I vowed to put a quilt together but didn't get around to it until now. Our Guild is putting some quilts together for a Group Home for Foster Children who have "graduated". They are 18+ and no longer qualify for the Foster Children program and have no families and still need some "support". I hope you like it and wish I had saved the names of everyone who contributed. Maybe, you will see yours......

    It looks great. My exchange blocks took eight years to become a quilt.

    Very nice!!! I see my block in there!!! Bottom row, second from left with the purple in it. It is called "Folded Box"

    I have not done anything with the blocks I received. Because one of our members' blocks had something happen to them I gave up one of my blocks so I have only 11 of them with my own included. Someday I will make another block to add to them and put them together!
