Waiting to get my "squishy" (technical term for the package of blocks) in the mail was like waiting for Christmas when I was six. It was so worth it! The variety of blocks and prints was wonderful. It was fun laying them out on the floor and fitting them together. I added a few blocks with light backgrounds to jazz it up a bit. I made lots of flying geese for the border on my Minnesota A, looking out the dining room window.
It's been 10 years now, and I can hardly believe it's passed so quickly. My favorite time to work on this quilt was in the fall. It was hard to make myself do the quilting any other time. I just finally finished the quilting last year.
I'm including a few more pictures. If you see a block you made, could you let me know? I once had a list of all the participants, but I'm afraid it disappeared. I know Windy Cindy made the pink batik blocks.
I'm still working on the feedsack pinwheels, and I will post a tutorial shortly. Even there, I'm finding bits of orange.
Here's hoping you are enjoying this season too.
