Here are first, my blocks for my aunt's quilt. Second, my blocks with my fabrics. All the crafty ladies in my family joined forces and agreed to sew at least 2 blocks a month.
Here's how it works: I picked out 10 fat quarters, sewed 2 block for myself out of those fabrics. Then, I mailed these 2 blocks and the remaining fabric to the next person in line. The next person sewed 2 blocks out of my fabric, in her own style, then mailed them on, with whatever fabric is leftover, to the next person. We went from Mid-Missouri, to Nashville, to East Tennessee, to New York, to California. Whew! My blocks are tired from all that travelling! I'm so excited about them. I really need to sew 2 more blocks--then I'd have 20. Any ideas what I should use to set them all together? I can't even decide if I want it to hang on the wall or use it as a lap quilt. I guess I'll figure it out after I sew it all together. If I spend too much time on it, I probably won't want to use it as a functional thing. We'll see.
