    A few weeks ago there was a thread about how we picked our board names. On that thread some of us talked about making quilt blocks that represent our "names." I thought I'd start this thread to talk about it!
    Lets talk!

    That sound like a good idea. I was thinking of a block that had S's in it for mine. I'll have to give this some thought:)

    Could it be applique? Or does it have to be pieced?

    I've actually made one already :) Hmm ... let me get a picture. got to find the thing first.

    It's not exactly a "block" although it could be. I got a free paper-pieced dog house pattern, embroidered the dog on, and embroidered "mom" on the dog house.

    I made it as a name badge for a meet and greet that sponsored a while back in Illinois.

    The dog house say's Mom. The dog is a pic of my doggies great-grand daddy.

    Well this is quite the challenge! Geesh, why did I pick this name? I'm a parasite, not to many quilt blocks with parasites on them, I suppose I'll just have to make its host.

    Oh dear. Since I am Stitchnripper, maybe my block should be half stitched and half ripped?

    ooooooo that is going to be hard. because mine is about being a mommy at home sea of crisis would work. hehe well at least in my home. or a house block would work too. but I like starry blocks best. there is also another I have recently found that I like. its called it a quilt called coventry by jinny beyer. it is like a twisted log cabin type block. but cooler, at least to me.

    We were talking about it in PM's and might do a swap. Your partner would make one that represents you and you do the same. I guess it would be any medium?

    I do like this idea! We could explain to our partner what each of our names represented & see what our partners could come up with!

    I agree any medium.
    Should we decide on a standard size.
