Progress on the Star Sampler Swap...
Duck Paddle
Kaleidoscope

Peaceful Hours

Both Lisa and Luisa's blocks arrived in the mail recently. The three above are from Lisa (love the names!) from Marsha McClosky's Block Party. Luisa posted hers on her blog. As you can see, her ochre and rust added much needed warmth to the overall color scheme. These swap blocks are so inspiring, both in workmanship and design. I think the cross-fertilization of ideas and visions is going to make for a much more interesting quilt than I could ever have made on my own. I want to make a double quilt, and perhaps a lap quilt out of extra blocks that i've been making along the way. Haven't decided yet on a setting, but thinking of using a very simple alternate block mainly in indigo, to sort of frame the stars.

Great quilt, I love the combination with the blue squares. A Merry Christmas Nettie, for you and your family. Hugs.
