Fun, Mona I have fabric set aside to do this exact same thing. I loved how Traveling Grandma’s turned out when she sent out a similar request

Mona G, that sounds fun. I look forward to seeing your fabric. Today I’m QAYG with wide sashings. The blocks are quilted so I’m on the short between-the-blocks sashings. I’ve done a couple of quilts this way and each time it gets easier with better results. I hope you’ll like the process. I love it because it opens up the option to quilt a piece I would normally send to the LA.

Tomorrow, I'll post a list of packages received. I'm expecting 6 more today.

Ibex94, when you do finish them, be sure to post pix for us!

I'm looking forward to working on the blocks - I've been in a bit of a piecing "rut" for a while. Though I have gotten almost caught up on quilting my tops, and I'm having fun with the embroidery machine.

After 2 days of straightening and cleaning the sewing room, it was very inviting this morning. Now just need to sew on the last round by hand this evening. I included a small piece of this blue in my packets but if you only need 2 colors the main fabric and white is fine. While I was waiting on my envelopes to mail my fabric, I got a text from my sister saying she had moved. So I thought this quilt should be for her, and blue is her color. I might do another of this with the focus fabric around the edge. The blue and the white seem more prominent in this one.

wow that pic looks large, I need to check my settings.

Really, don't worry about the pic being big. Those of us who may not have the best vision love them this size.
