Cathy and I have completed 6 months of our disappearing 4-patch quilt block swap - we're using large scale florals and Kona Snow for our blocks. We got together last week Friday to exchange our blocks - these are the blocks I made for her:
We also had a bridal shower at church on Wed. evening. We were each asked to bring a small gift for the couple. I wasn't sure what to bring, but I wanted it to be hand-made. I poked around a few crafty sites, and found more than a few great ideas - and then I remembered the place mats that someone from our quilt guild had made, using a mini-charm pack. I had a few of those kicking around, so I made 2 sets of 2 place mats. The floral set was made using Honeysweet, from Fig Tree Quilts, and the blues and taupes are from the Snowman Gatherings line by Primitive Gatherings. I did simple straight line quilting, both on the body of the place mats, and also SID around the charms.
My June ALYoF project is almost ready to stitch together - the rows are all complete, and the layout has been finalized, so a few hours of sewing will get the top assembled! Check in here on Tues. for pics of the finished top.
