2012 is the third year that the Block Swappers group is hosting a birthday block exchange. Each participant specifies the block and colorway she'd like. This weekend I forged ahead and made all 14 blocks, for everyone except myself. I'll mail them out at the beginning of each birthday month. Estimated total fabric used: 2 yards.
I added to my stash this week with some Salvation Army bargains: 4-1/2 yards of Christmas fabric, cut into two pieces and seamed to make an 84 x 80" tablecloth but apparently never used, and 6 yards of lavender poly/rayon blend which will make a springtime suit. Total cost, with tax: $4.99!
Don't forget to take a look at what other quiltmakers are working on at Patchwork Times Design Wall Monday.
