2013 Birthday Blocks Begin.. Quilter's Dozen
Just an update to any who are wondering.
Yes, we will have a birthday block exchange for 2013. So that everyone can watch the fun, I hope that this year's quilters post LOTS of pictures! It's so much fun to see the patterns and color combinations.
I received a request that the patterns chosen be posted to the forum as a whole at the beginning of the year, as I know one new quilter who's thinking of sewing along with us as a learning exercise. Now, that's dedication!
So, here's the pattern list for our 2013 Birthday Block Exchange:
January: 12" Card Trick in brights on black
12" Quilter's Choice in blues
March: 12" Any star block in blues and yellows, as in July 2012 lotto
12" Coffee with Jeanne block (a sandlapper_rose design)
9" Cups and Saucers in white with red & white print
April: 12" Louisiana block in Bright Pink, Lime Green and White on White
May: 12" Tulip Lady Fingers in lavender, sage and cream (2 blocks for person filling 2 slots)
August: 12" Snowball Block in sports prints on brown background (corners)
September: 12" Louisiana Block in blues and whites on white background
12" Woven Ribbons in dark & light blue, red and yellow/orange batiks
12" Brasstown Star in autumn golds, browns and cream
October: 12" Depression Block in 1930's prints
Quite a variety, huh? It promises to be a lot of fun to make such a variety of blocks.
If you weren't able to join us this year, then hope to see you in 2014!
