My envelopes went out late last week.

I hope you all enjoyed the holiday weekend. A few years back I was part of a Red-White-Blue Patriotic swap on these boards. I took a few of those blocks this weekend and made a nice wall hanging quilt. My husband also put a hanging rod up for it. I'm anxious to make some more wall quilts so I can change it up by season. It has hanging clips so it should be easy to change.

Irish, what a nice exchange project. Planning a small wall quilt for each season is grand idea to decorate your home as the months and seasons change. . Wondering the size of each block is and how many you had to make for the exchange. I have seen those exchanges but never signed up in fear I would have to make 15 or 20 blocks. My guild does this and one year I signed up and had to make 26 blocks!! Oh sure I got 25 back plus one of my own, but really, that is a lot of blocks. It strikes fear in me thinking of making that many blocks again. Tee-Hee-Hee

My holiday weekend was spent in the sewing room cleaning up odds and ends of projects. More info to be shared later!

Irishmom, I remember that RWB block exchange. I may even have participated in it! We did a winter one, too. Seems like we exchanged sets of 4 blocks, as many sets as you wanted to receive back.

Your patriotic quilt turned out lovely.

A contest for the Month of June. This past weekend I spent Friday through Monday sewing and primarily putting to use what seemed to be a mountain of started but unfinished projects that use 2.5 squares. I had four patches, 9 patches, 16 patches, 25 patches and even a few that were larger and that were of other odd combinations. So, I began sorting and organizing them and then stitching them together into quilt tops. This resulted in three new quilt tops.

The question is "How many 2.5's did I put to use in three quilt tops total?" The swapper that has the closest guess will be sent a package of quilter friendly items early next week.

I'm going to guess 2,438. Pretty impressive finishing three quilt tops, WMUTeach!
