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 made a table cloth for my dessert table from them. Thanks for joining our Group!
