Each person was given one color (I was green), they made 12 of that color blocks, then we swapped and ended up with 12 different colors blocks.
I joined my blocks without sashing, creating a simple 4 patch. You can also add sashing a create a 9 patch block. Trina decided to make her quilt bigger and is making more blocks on her own.
My green block.
There was a little trouble with differing quarter inch blocks (some blocks were up to a half inch bigger or smaller than others. I found I needed to use a very scant quarter inch to make the block square up to the stated size. It might be helpful to make a tester block first.
I machine quilted this one myself as I had easy lines to follow and it wasn't too big to wrangle on my home machine. And yes, one block was put together with a rotated section. I didn't fix it but kept it because it reminds me of the lady who made it.
I recently finished a king size quilt (I will share soon) and there was no way I was quilting that one myself. Heather did a great job and used a new to her pattern that worked out great.
Need a quilt quilted? Heather can also do your binding for you. Check out this page for details and great pricing. I know some people think a king size quilt would cost and arm and a leg but Heather's pricing scale is great.
