It was one of those swaps where I sent out a piece of my fabric to each participant and gave her the specifications for what I wanted. In this case, I sent out pieces of various William Morris fabrics that were predominantly green. I asked people to use a white or WOW background and, if they liked, another color to coordinate with the Morris. I wanted 12.5" blocks. I think I received two dozen back, and the first dozen were made into a quilt a long time ago. I found this remaining dozen this weekend and decided to do something with them. They seemed to want some nice white lattice and border and I thought that some stars in the cornerstones would be nice.
I finished setting the blocks tonight and have been looking at the piece of white fabric that I have left to determine whether there is enough to make 6" borders. There might be just enough. Or there might not. I need to do the math again when I'm not tired!
If I need to get more white, that's not a problem. I'll just add it to the shopping list for Friday when my visitor and I go out to Lancaster County. I'd like to get the top all finished this weekend. Because I found another set of blocks from another swap that could use some attention.
