I was thinking that I wanted a bigger quilt than a dozen blocks would yield so was going for 20 blocks with generous lattice. After I finished my eleven blocks to swap and the one extra for me to have the even dozen, I started making my eight additional blocks.
Yesterday's SuperBowl and today's Snow Day afforded me the opportunity to complete the final six that I needed.
Several of my blocks came from this book, now out of print and hard to find. I acquired it years ago, well before I was competent to attempt many of the blocks. But it sort of lurked in my memory and when Kathy proposed this swap, I pulled it out and found my skill level has pretty much caught up with the book! The block in the upper right gave me some trouble, but that may be because I needed a nap. Ultimately, it behaved.
I'm so grateful to Kathy for dreaming up this wonderful exchange! Now, where's April?
