"Porch Swing Quilt" by Wendy

The blocks in this quilt are from a block swap that my quilt group and I have been doing for 3 months. While most of the ladies are still swapping, I have made my quilt. I had enough blocks for what I wanted to do. I made this quilt to fit my front porch swing. If it ever quits raining I will take a picture of it on the swing.

I've made string blocks before.  They are fun and a great way to use up those smaller strips.  Your attic window placement is REALLY neat - I really like it.  It adds another dimension.  Terrific job!

I think this is wonderful. It made me remember as a child sitting in the porch swing with my Grandma and her trying to teach me to piece quilt blocks together. She wanted the stitching straight and even. Lots of good memories.

Cool! I like the way you framed the blocks. I don't usually like string blocks, but you have re-invented the style.

By the way...Where are you? The rain just left my area..NE Oklahoma...guess it went your way.

You ladies have created some wonderful memories together, and what a fun quilt to bring them to mind quickly. Terrific idea that my group just may borrow from you. Thanks
