Playing with block sets

Hi Block Exchangers!

I've been playing with the blocks I've received so far.  Here are three different sets.  I love this block!

 Can't wait to see your photos from Monday night!

February Show & Tell

So, Cindy said to bring show and tell to the February meeting. Quilters aim to please ... Here's the show and tell from this month (I'm not going to explain each one, just put the name on it):







EILEEN's friend, Georgette's (and Eileen's mom, special visitor in Feburary)





February 2014 meeting

These are Cindy's blocks. She's using 'vintage' 1980's fabric. For those of us old enough to remember the 1980's (and we ALL are) we just call it stashed fabric. I like calling it vintage ... certainly sounds better than the 'what was I thinking' pile of fabric (which this is not, it's awesome).

Cindy has us sewing the nine patches, she'll make them disappear.

These are Terry's blocks. It's such a cool quilt that makes its own sashing ... 
now if it would figure out how to sew itself together.

The blocks above are Bonnie's. She would like browns and blues but not together in one block.

 Beth's blocks definitely have us thinking Spring ... maybe it will be spring by our March meeting!
Hey, a girl can dream, right?

These are Dorothy's blocks. Dorothy was sick of waiting for Spring, so she left town.
This means we have more time to get her blocks done. 

These are one of the blocks Carol has requested. 
We've all decided this is one of the best uses of scraps ever.

Not to be outdone in the scrap department, Jan's blocks are so great.
First, she sewed all the little squares we just had to put them together.
Too easy, right? She's getting a lot of her blocks sooner than later.

These blocks are mine. They're way more subtle than I ever dreamed, 
but sometimes quiet is good too.

These blocks are Georgia's ... also Spring-y. 
They're cute birds, and then we do a patchwork piece.

This block is Ruth's. Scrappy, with thought because of the light and dark placement.
