I've a few patchwork blocks to show today though not all of them were made by me.
This is one of the Mini-Round Robin quilts made by the owner of the quilt. I'm not quite sure how the Mini-RR is going. Some people don't meet the deadlines and so we are having trouble keeping track of where the quilts are. Others have two that come in together unmarked so we don't know who they really belong to. (Makes it difficult to choose which block to make when you don't know who the person is.) I thought we had made it clear to pass along blocks in their envelopes but that instruction got lost somewhere as did the suggestion that the owner specify her preferences for colors or theme. Ah well, this is all going to be an adventure anyway! I hope everyone will be satisfied with their final products!
I made up this paper-pieced heart for the bazaar quilt. I am the only one in our group that does any paper-piecing and I don't think anyone else is very impressed with the process. I'm worried that this will get zilched because it might be too different from the other blocks people are making. There are quite a few Japanese books on paper-piecing but it hasn't really made a hit in Japan and none of my friends seem to be interested in learning. This was fun and fast to make.
And I put the finishing stitches into my Noah's Ark BOM! Yeah! These blocks were all so cute! Lynette has shown how these are all supposed to go together but I can't picture it yet. I hope those blocks all came out the right size!
I guess I am really a quilter at heart though I appreciate the embroidery and I think it adds a wonderful touch to quilted pieces. But on this last block I had to take out my contact lenses and work close up. Those reading glasses just weren't doing it for me! This may mark my last attempt at embroidery.
