I am still at Quilt Market and will post more about it tomorrow, but for now I want to post my entry in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.
I made this quilt with my Piecemaker’s Bee. We exchange swap blocks each year.
In 2010 we exchanged string blocks. We were able to designate a color we
wanted and a color to avoid. Of course as usual in exchanges, what you get is
what you get or as they say around here “You get what you get and don’t pitch a fit.”
Here are the blocks I received.
This is what I made from them.
Here is a close-up of the quilting.
My friend Barb did the embroidery for me on her embroidery machine. I cut up the exchange blocks with my 60 degree ruler and sewed it together. I like it!
