For this gathering, we brought our completed 12.5" blocks, made of the fabrics given to us by Carol. We used whatever pattern we desired. We found that our challenge, regardless of the size, was ensuring that we all had 12.5" blocks. As you may well know, when you create your own quilt, you simply cut all of your blocks down to the same size, and the exact (uniform) size of the finished blocks sometimes does not matter. Well, with a group quilt project like this, size does matter.
Joyce volunteered to take the first batch home and sew them together into a quilt, and we had nine left:
Since there are still squares coming in, we will have enough for two quilts!
Some of us also brought our scrap quilts to share. And, of course, we had lots of other quilts to share. Our online photo album should be available in a couple of days.
And what quilting group's gathering would be complete without great food and great conversation?
