One of the groups I am a member of is hosting a friendship star block. There was talk of it quite a while ago, and it was finally posted last week. There are several different color ways a person could sign up for, batiks, solids, scrappy and Christmas. I decided to do the Christmas one. I have plenty of Christmas fabrics in my stash to at least get me a start. We only have to send in seven blocks a month for nine months, not too much of a commitment, right? I really like doing swaps, it helps me to really pay attention and make sure I am doing my best work. I really want to send in blocks that are just right. It’s fun to wait and receive squishy envelopes in the mail every month. Here is a picture of the blocks I will be sending in this June.
Pretty easy huh? I think it will be easy to keep up with this one. My goal will be to have it done and quilted by Christmas 2016.
For my other projects I still have the appliqué out and ready to work on some more, but I am really wanting to get back to the machine quilting. I’m so glad the machine I had to take in to the repair shop is fixed and picked up!😃. Now if I could put a few more hours in the day so I could quilt more!
