the priceless items continue

I was in a block swap earlier in the year through a yahoo group of Repro Fabrics these are the wonderful blocks I got back...now it is not often that you are in a swap where every block is to the correct measurements, the 1/4in is exact all around the outside perimeter and that the piecing is so perfect. Each of the swappers really paid attention to their work and fabric choices...All of the blocks were fabulous.. that to me is priceless...

I have 30 blocks and now have found the perfect pattern that I will use to put these gorgeous blocks together. This is found in the McCalls Quilting magazine June 2007 designed by Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith each block has a sample block I will have to make a few more but oh this quilt will be so worth it!!!


Well I think that is the end for now in the priceless department...for now...LOL

  1. You certainly are lucky to get all the blocks just right. I have been in similar swaps and sometimes the blocks that I got I have not included in the final put together. What you are going to do will look fabulous :)

  2. How great is that! All the blocks are pretty close in the size they need to be. They will make a very nice quilt.

  3. Those blocks will make a really lovely quilt. Will you quilt it yourself, or will you get Sandy to work her magic on it?
