Thank You Jane

My rainbow swap blocks arrived! Thank you so much Jane for hosting this great swap. If you look at my side bar you can see the button for Jane's swap. I love my blocks.
Now the fun begins trying to decide how to sash and place them in a new quilt.
The thing I first noticed was the great precision and technique used in all the blocks. They were really made well. Thanks to all the gals in Swap Group 1. Love the blocks.
I do think something like black would be a good neutral to sash them with but not black with white dots like my latest quilt. I think I'm going to snoop first on all the plans the other swappers are making on how to set the blocks. It will be fun to see first how everyone is making their quilts. This will make a great memory quilt.

It was such a treat to have you in the swap and you are right, each and every block was perfect, it was such fun, I am not sure what I am going to do with mine either!!

Oooh, what pretty blocks. I can't wait to see what you do with them! It DOES spark everyone's creativity to see what others are doing. That's one of the best things about blogging. (That and the encouragement.)

Purple and Paisley said...

lol...your blocks ARE identical to mine! i'm thinking of a multi-color polka dot sashing with all the different colors of the blocks - what do you think?

They look very nice, so will it be a sampler quilt.

Nedra said...

Those are wonderful. I'm sure you will come up with something fabulous to put them together.
Next time you are ready to join a swap, will you let me know? I always feel like I hear about them too late. I've not done one before and I'm now ready to jump in to the fun.

I can't wait to see how you combine these blocks. It's the hardest part for me. Lately, i have been thinking of using attic windows for some past unfinished BOM.

Look at all the pretty colors!!! I love the orange bow-tie block! I have been thinking lately I need to follow a pattern and make a quilt (partly why I ordered a couple of your patterns :) I'd love to some day do a masterpiece quilt, so I thought I'd better start doing some more intricate quilting to help me accomplish that goal. Thanks for always being so inspirational!
