Club Block Box

Last year one of our Club members, Pat Christ came up with a great idea for the members to do for one year.  We had to choose a background, light, medium and dark fabric and an accent.  We put them in a box and the box was passed around to each member.  We all needed to choose a block pattern of our choice and then make that block for each person using their material.  Our blocks were to be a secret until they were revealed at Pat's house for our club picnic.  She arranged everyone's blocks on design walls so that we could see everyone's blocks together.
This is the block pattern that I chose for eveyone's  fabric.  Mine is the one in the lower right hand corner.

I'm sorry that these pictures aren't  clearer, but you get the idea.

Our goal for this year is to have our blocks sewn into a quilt top by our August picnic.  Wish me luck getting it together!

Happy Sewing,


  1. Everyone did great job sewing the blocks! I was lucky to be part of the group. I am working on my top! :)

    Happy sewing!

  2. I must admit that I got a chance to see Zlaty's quilt and I love it!
