She hosted two groups, one modern and one repro...obviously I chose the second group. We were to make 50 pairs of block to swap. The tutorial shows how to make them in pairs and they are stacked on top of each other in the photo.
Note: The photo is lousy because it's been raining here forever and it may never be sunny again. Actually, the sun usually comes out again in mid-April which is why I absolutely HATE the fall/winter in this area. The fall usually isn't so bad, but it reminds me that winter is coming and that IS VERY BAD around here if you are a sun lover like me. So while the rest of you are counting down the days to Christmas, I'm counting down the days until sunshine again. At least I have quilting to get me through the months of drippy darkness. Now, I just sound like I'm whining so let's get back on topic...
I was absolutely thrilled when my package of nine patches arrived! It was so fun to look at each and every one and admire the fabrics. I tried to pick favorites but that was futile...I love them ALL. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them yet and that's okay. I piled them neatly in a cute little basket and they are sitting on my cutting table. One day I will see a quilt or get a flash of inspiration and I will know exactly what to do with them. No rush, just going to enjoy for a while until I'm certain what they want to be.
Enjoy every stitch!
