Two pretty quilts Jeanine. I've got half of my blocks done, I hope to finish them this weekend. I'll have to see if I can do more later.

I received 8 blocks today!

i was thinking of doing a block drive for myself.  It's kind of fun getting the blocks in the mail.  Anyone want to donate blocks to me?  LOL. Just kidding!  It is fun, though.

I'm enjoying sewing the blocks too - haven't received where to send them yet, will keep making them,  if I end up with extras, that wouldn't be so bad, would it?   After I have been working on them for couple days, I began to wonder if my ideas for "Wonky" were the same as theirs, as in, mine are all colors and sizes of strips, the way I always make them, no lights and darks, just random strips.  Hope they will be OK!  Here's a picture of few finished  except for the black borders  Close up of one --- have all the others in various sizes in progress.

They look wonderful, Carol!  I am also mixing colors and patterns and not trying to do a dark side and light side of the log cabin pattern.   I've done some blocks that the strips are wonky, but only a few. It goes faster if I use straight strips.  

I've got my second set of 20 blocks done. This set will go to British Columbia, Canada.  I guess I'll get to deal with Post Office tomorrow with the customs forms.  

I'm trying to clear out most of my old scraps.  There is probably enough for another 40 blocks at least already cut and ready to be sewn. I'd better get back to it!

Jeanine ,Have a question for you  ,How are you incorporating the labels on your quilts , are you just stitching them on after you have the quilt finished or are in putting them in the actual backing.?  I was not real sure how to do that.  thanks .Barbara

Carol's blocks are so pretty I kinda hate to show mine!  I'm working from the top of my scrap box, taking scraps off in layers. That method creates several blocks that sort of look alike cause they have similar colors and fabrics.  Hope the Team Leader has a very creative mind to be able to put them all together!

Barbara and Jeanine, and other Team Leaders, THANK YOU!
