It's hard to believe it has been a whole year since I started my quilt project.  I have been quilting one quilt from each block in my favorite quilt book, "Around the Block with Judy Hopkins". 

 I started this project so quilters would have a place to go to see what the blocks would look like when sewn together.  On many of the quilt blocks you see a different design than just the single block.  I have had a hard time visualizing what the quilt would look like just from seeing the one block.  

Some of the designs are amazing while others don't change at all.  Here are a few of my favorites.

I have made almost 50 quilts of the 200 quilt  blocks.   I don't think I realized how long this project would take when I first started it.  But I am enjoying seeing all the finished quilts and I hope you are too.  So here I go on to the next 50 blocks.  Hope to see you there.
