spring swap blocks are here!!!




These blocks are from a MJF spring block swap!! I was thinking that maybe I would add a nice floral sashing to it. Right now I am not sure if I want it to be a table covering or a small lap quilt. The tags on them are the names of the women who created them. So far, I think I have done about 12 swaps with the girls at MJF and by now many of us are friends. Making these blocks was fun because it made spring come faster. Pretty soon, I will post a picture of the quilt top.

In two days I am off to Pennsylvania with my friend Deb!! We will do some quilt shops, antique shops, lots of food from Cracker Barrel and a dinner with the Amish. On Monday, we are learning to make soap with the owner of the B&B we stay at while we are there. Then, when I get home, it is time to make the slipcover. There will be 4 days left to get it done before going back to school. While I am away, I am going to get my witch kitchen towel embroidered. It's only been about three months since I started it.
