I've wanted to post this quilt for some time because it's one of my favorite projects that my friends and I did several years ago. We had been meeting as a group for nearly three years when we decided it would be fun to do a block exchange. As a group we decided on a quilt theme and the color palette we wanted to use.
So, we got twelve of us to commit to making the twelve blocks each and then we set a date that we all thought we could finish it by. It was really fun when we finally got together to exchange the blocks. We had a couple of stragglers in the end but we ALL got them done! It was a really great accomplishment as a group to finish this kind of project!
After the block exchange I was so excited to sew the blocks together that I finished my quilt right away and it's been hanging on my sewing room wall for many years now. I get to look at it often and I'm reminded of the special times we shared as friends and how much quilting has brought us together.
Here are close-ups of some of the blocks. Blogger wouldn't let me upload the rest of the block pictures. I will try to add the other blocks later.
