    Smile 9P and string blocks used in small quilts for school fundraiser

    Every Fall our church has an all day fundraiser to benefit the grade school. With 4 grands in attendance this year I made 3 small table toppers for the silent auction. Every once in a while I will mindlessly sew small string; 9p or 4P blocks. I picked these out of my "block" box. Making them took less time as the blocks were already done.Name:  031.JPG

    Oh Gladdy you are so talented, the second one looks like the coaster you sent me. So beautiful, and for a great cause.

    Thanks all. Every time I finish one of these I just want to go through my scraps and make more blocks and come up with new ways and new fabric choices to make one of a kind quilts.

    Nice job: I looked at the picture of the quilt before I looked at who posted it and thought it must be yours and I was right. Keep up the good work.

    Am I that predictable Mary? Maybe I will make a totally different one next time just to fool you
