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!

A blessed Easter to you all as we celebrate the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ to save us from sin and death!
Carol, that's really neat that Orthodox and elsewhere Easter matches this year!

Great job, Amanda!  Desiree,  So glad you enjoyed your trip to the USA.

HAPPY EASTER  to all of my Christian friends.  This year is only 1 year out of 5 that Western Easter and Eastern, Greek, Easter fall on the same day.  In Greek we say "Kalo Pascha, Kronia Pola".  This translates to "Happy Easter, Christ is Risen!"  Have a Blessed Day.

Happy Easter!
