Starry, Starry Night
I run a swap list for a small community of quilters. Some are local women that I see at church and elsewhere in the neighborhood. Some are internet friends that I've met in person, and others are friends I've not met yet. A couple of them live as far away as Great Britain. All of them make beautiful blocks.

A couple of months ago Carolyn proposed that we make 12" sawtooth stars using batiks on blacks, with the center of the sawtooth being an interesting 6" block instead of a solid square. People liked it! Bags of blocks have been arriving here over the past couple of weeks, and there isn't an unlikeable block in the bunch.

The design wall shows part of my progress. The mailing date is Monday. One of the really good things about running a swap is that one doesn't have to make one's blocks until the very last minute. One of the really bad things about running a swap is that one has a tendency not to make one's blocks until the very last minute.
