First of all, let me start by saying this is not my quilt. Heck, it's not even my photograph! It is Bonnie Hunter's quilt. The photo is used with her permission and she calls her quilt "Out of the Blue." Excellent name.
Okay, credit being given with gratitude to dear generous Bonnie, let's move on with what's happening!
Back in the spring, blogless Marilyn and I got the idea of swapping Lady of the Lake blocks. I put some pictures up for friends to look at and this block is the one that appealed to blogless Helen and somebody else. We are going to swap blue and white blocks made from batiks and WOW; at least that is where we are at this point. Details are being finalized. We're also deciding between 8" and 10" fished blocks. Prolly going to go with 8".
The problem is, there are just a half dozen of us. And it sure would be nice to have another half dozen. The more variety of blues, the more beautiferous the quilt, IMNSHO. It will be a centralized swap, i.e., participants will send all of their blocks to me along with a SASE. I'll do quality control and swap them out and send them back. I'm thinking sign-ups by July 20 and blocks due by September 25. I'm working on a set of precise guidelines and will make them available to all participants. If participants are on Facebook, I'll set up a private FB group; if not, I'll run it through my yahoo group.
If you've ever thought about making a LOTL quilt, now just might be the time! Leave a comment if you are interested in participating and make sure I have a way to contact you. And then go dig through your blue batiks and fondle away!!!!
If you are not interested in swapping, please hold comments for this post. I don't want to get confused!
