I have a plan to make a quilt made up of student letters. I think it will be a blast. Heidi very kindly sent me these blocks which she had leftover from making her very fun Marry Christmas quilt.
Anyone who wants to send me letters (fabric or paper, hee hee hee), please to do so! Just email me and I'll send you my snail mail address. [And if you have my address, feel free to share it with other quilters.] I was planning on having you all add a letter block as whoever wanted to got the Class in a Box project, but I'm already feeling like the box is going to be too crowded. Not that I've finished getting it together yet, but I will soon, really.
I don't care if the letters "work" or not, I don't care about the colors or pattern. Preferably cotton though - I have an aversion to polyester and I'm allergic to wool. I'll take in all your rejects and discards. Trust me, they will all go together great and I will have a fabulous quilt. You'll say to yourself, why didn't I keep that block?
Getting Heidi's blocks made me realize I'd never posted a pic of this marvelous block that Carol E. of Giraffe Dreams made me. (D'oh - I'm so disorganized.) Isn't it fun? Carol is working on some fun funky houses right now so I recommend a visit to her neighborhood.
Skinny Log Cabin blocks yesterday. I have to say that I've been doing a good job of keeping them organized - I've only gotten mixed up and sewn light logs on the dark side twice. I know it would have been lazier to have just left it, but no, couldn't do it.
My newer blocks arranged in a Streak of Lightning. This is actually my favorite log cabin setting, but I was thinking I needed to try something new this quilt. But my, I like how this looks...
These are the only blocks I have left to do. I'm not actually sure how many I've got in progress, though there are supposed to be 70. Or 71. I wanted a few left over blocks for a future mis-matched quilt.
Pokey has just been in the way. I love that she's so affectionate, but still. We played fetch yesterday. She used to do so much of that when she was a baby, but it's much rarer now so I have to encourage her while she's willing to play.
