Besides the excitement of making the donations quilts and giving Nancy her quilt. We did our yearly block exchange.
First, here is the stack of blocks ready to be swapped. We had 12 people participate this year.
Each person was able to ask for two colors to be used in their blocks and one color to stay away from. Here are the blocks being sorted.
After sorting, each of us laid out our blocks for everyone to admire. Each of these first six block sets said that anything goes and didn’t specify any preferences.
Green – these are folded in half because Jan is planning on making trees out of hers
Red, white and blue
and my black and white
Now our challenge is to make something from these blocks by our Christmas celebration in early December.
Besides the block exchange, making the donation quilt and giving Nancy her quilt, we had a potluck lunch. I made three types of tea sandwiches – egg salad, smoked salmon with cream cheese and finally cucumber. There were all other kinds of wonderful dishes to share. None of us went hungry.
