The Blocks Above are:

The blocks shown in the photo above are some of the blocks I received from a previous block swap within my quilting bee in Alvin, TX. The theme was a Christmas Swap and we had 25 members sign up for it. The instructions were to make a block for each participant (and one for yourself) from Christmas fabric. They could be any color, or combination of colors as long as they were Christmas Fabrics and had a creme colored background. We were told that we could use any block we wanted and any technique we wanted, applique, paper piecing, traditional piecing, etc. At the end of the challenge, we discovered that no block had been duplicated and none of the fabrics were the same. This was all accidental, since no one knew what the others were doing. Can you believe that 25 women who sewed together every Tuesday could keep secrets for such a long time? I am working on my quilt now and will post the results when I complete the top. Thanks for joining our Group!

Have fun in New York, Sussie!

I know many people do not have a working camera or an easy way to upload photos, but if someone does I hope they might post a photo of the blocks they receeved from the blue 9 patch swap at the end. They all sound fantastic!

Carol Glad you liked the block--you're right we are getting some very nice blocks so far!

Pat B-I'm shocked!  I sent yours out the same time as everyone else's  & you already have it!!! Wonderful--They told me it would be about a week & it ended up about 4-5 days plus the Sunday.  I'll have to quit crabbing about the slow post office!! I'm glad you liked the block & hopefully it will look okay in whatever you make!

Thank you to Donna R and Carol for the lovely blocks.  Mine are under construction at the moment, hopefully it won't be too long before they wing their way to you all.
