    I was wondering what you think about my showing one quilt block each month for everyone to do the same one or do you prefer choosing your own quilt block?

    I was thinking about joining this swap, but I have a question first. Do we just do one block that measures 12 1/2?

    Thanks,

    Yes you make one quilt block. But it has to be one I designed. So follow any of the lists I posted to find one you like.

    You will need a 2 1/2" template to make these. So if you need one let me know and I will send you one.

    I have found the block that I love the most! The Ashley. I have lots of scraps that I inherited from my grandmother and have the perfect colors that I will be sharing with my partner. Hope she likes them! Dad will be having eye surgery on Thursday and I will be working on this.

    I'm sorry I missed the deadline. This looks like a great idea. I'll definitely have to remember to sign up for next month.

    I got to work on my block last night. I was horrible at judging how much fabric of one color! I am short!! Guess there is a trip to The Fabric Shoppe in my future this week. I hope to have it finished by the week end.

    Enjoy your day!

    Okay I worked on my albums and now you can find all of my quilt blocks in my albums.
    Here is the link. You will also see the layout for each quilt block. If you have any problems with understanding the layouts just let me know.

    Darn! Went to The Fabric Shoppe, and they do not have the fabric I am in need of!! Had to get a different color. Guess I will have to redo what I have already finished! Oh, well. It is my fault that I didn't measure twice, cut once. Those boys are smart at something!!
