Above are the blocks that Joan sent to me, as our exchange blocks. Her block are 5 inch, and mine are 3 inch. I absolutely love the fabrics she chose!! Thank you, Joan...her blog is here. You will love her quilts!
Many quilters are engrossed in the spool making that is going on around blog land. A very nice blogger, Joan, and I saw each others spool blocks and she suggested a swap. We were able to have them ready to exchange in less than 24 hours! That was fast and fun! Above are all the spool blocks I have made ( and Joan has made for me) so far. I have a long way to go in order to actually have enough for a quilt, but love these so far!! Sorry about the poor picture quality.
We actually had some mailbox drama in this last week! We have a neighborhood e-mail listing and chain, you know, for information about what is going on around our little neighborhood. I saw on the e-mail that a lady in a white car was actually going around stealing mail from mailboxes, and our street was hit! I was just praying that our mail did not get stolen, because I hoped the quilt blocks were not taken! They weren't...and a neighbor who spotted the thief actually ran her down and called the police, and she is sitting in jail right now, charged with identity theft and resisting arrest, or some such thing.
Hope you have a wonderful week! I am so sorry for our neighbors getting their mail stolen(the mail is being returned to them), but... aren't you glad the quilt blocks did not get nabbed??
