There are 10 Blocks made in this quilt - one by myself, then9 by friends I have sewn with for the past 4 years. The fabrics in the box were provided by me. Then I made one block to set the "theme" and the block & fabric went into a Pizza box... each of us in the group did the same. Then once a month we would trade boxes so that at the end of the year, we had each made a block for each of the boxes. We then challenged ourselves to have the tops made for our first get together after Christmas. I used a book called "Beyond the Block" as my inspiration to complete my top.
