The second week several of us brought in our 5" squares and did the exchange. The first problem arose when I sewed my first two 9-patch blocks, cut them and sewed them back together per the instructions. The block definitely did not provide the expected result. All those who participate agreed. Next problem was... what to do with the 81 5" blocks. I think you have to agree that the block is some ugly.
Well, I contemplated on what I was going to do with this now very acceptable quilt and came up with a table quilt... it fits our table very nicely.
To the right is the center of my next quilt project. I like it lots already and I have only just begun. I have lots of fabric choices that I will incorporate into this new adventure. When this one is complete it will fit very nicely into the background of Ron's Creation classes at church.
