Last night was my "after" Christmas Guild Party and we had our Christmas block exchange. I always worry when I participate in these for fear that the blocks I get in return won't be nice. Now I don't mean that my fellow quilters don't do a good job, but I mean that they may not be to my taste in blocks. Well......I have to admit, I got fabulous blocks last night. I actually took two to exchange and got two great ones back. But then my sewing friend Sandy made me a Snowflake block just because I said I liked it when she was sewing hers at our sewing bee day! I love it!!! So now I have three blocks to start a Christmas sampler. I think I may have a few other Christmas blocks in my closet so I may have to wait a few years and keep collecting them before I make a quilt out of them! But this is a great start!
This is the Snowflake block that my friend Sandy made. Wouldn't a quilt with all snowflakes be a fabulous quilt? Love it!
And here's the three of them together. With a pretty lattice strip between them, they will be awesome!!
So now that everything Christmas is behind me, it's time to start focusing on NEXT Christmas. Yes, that was my resolution that I plan to keep this year! Work on gifts NOW so I don't find myself under the gun at the last minute! Wish me luck!
