I sewed two exchange blocks today - Eileen's block and Cindy's block. Both are going to be beautiful quilts!

This is Cindy's block. The color isn't really great here, but it's limey green ... Cindy's favorite color.
It's a pretty straightforward block ...
And here's Cindy (I didn't take a picture of her at the meeting but I grabbed one online). Cindy just retired from her job and will get to spend lots of time quilting now ... we're trying not to be jealous!
This is Dorothy's block ... it's a log cabin-style quilt block with yellow blocks through the middle.
We get to do whatever color we'd like, as long as it's one color (ie red, purple, green, yellow, etc.)
Dorothy. You can see the quilt that we're making on the calendar in her hand ... pretty, eh?
And, we're back at it ... block exchanging, that is ...
Our group is about the same size, but not everyone is doing a block this year.
Some people are only making blocks for others, some are making and giving,
and some are hanging out for the great company!

Carol's block is a series of rectangles joined in courthouse step fashion. Pretty easy, as far as blocks go, and pretty scrappy too. Carol said she uses this one as she puts leaders and enders into her machine. Great scrappy block ... if you just kept going and going, you'd have an entire one-block quilt.
And, here's Carol ...
