We all have them, but do they ever get done? My goal this year is to go thru all my bags of swap blocks and get some quilts made. I belong to several Yahoo groups and have done a lot of swaps in the past, so my collection of blocks is growing.
I have a collection of Happy Blocks from 3 different groups I belonged to.
I still have several more collections left, including a big bag of Autumn's from Block Central - when we used to get 40-48 blocks when we won.
I plan to work on the assorted kids, bugs, etc the next time we go there. I worked on some Halloween ones I won last year when I was at sewing at my friend's house last month. Got the rows all pieced, now just have to finish sewing the rows together.
This has been something I wanted to do for quite a while because I don't really have a lot of throw or larger quilts in my house. It seems I always make them for gifts but never get any done for myself, lol.
I have some gorgeous Halloween appliqued blocks from a swap several years ago, plus 2 years of Christmas appliqued blocks and a Christmas pieced block swap from swaps done by Aunt Pitty Pat.
I also have patriotic blocks and a group of blocks from a swap called My Favorite Block-where everyone did their favorite block, but in the named color theme.
So this year I really want to finish up a lot of UFO's and clear out the assorted blocks I have. Let's hope I can follow thru on this goal.
Until next time...
Happy quilting from Sharon, Patsy Cline, and Johnny Cash
