I got these 40 nine patches done for one of my exchanges.
Here are the other blocks I had to get done. There were 5 blocks and a few other little bits and pieces to go with them each month. We will be exchanging these every month for the next year. It will be all Civil War fabric and scrappy. We are doing this quilt out of the current (April 2012 issue) American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.
It's called Raspberry Mocha in the magazine and is done in pinks and browns but we are doing it scrappy.
Here's my 5 blocks and the bits and pieces for the month.
Now that I have my obligation blocks out of the way, I can play a little....Before I go, I'll post a few of the pictures I took at the Dallas show yesterday...enjoy the eye candy! There were alot of Texas Quilts. This one was my favorite but too many people to get a good shot of it This one belongs to a friend of mine. This is her pattern and she is doing a Block of the month on this one...it's brand new but I don't remember the name of it...I love it but it's applique (ugh!- I guess I'll have to break down and do it.)
Another Texas quilt.
This was was an interesting quilt. Alot of it was wool, mostly the animals but some of the backgrounds too.
This clamshell quilt was interesting too. She put a striped band on each clam. Look below for the closeup...
This one has colored squares that were about 5" big plus the shadow behind it with black/white background fabric that waved...There was another one of these quilts a few aisles over but it was rectangles. This one was my favorite of the two...
I'll post more later....til next time, happy sewing!
