|Two "manly" blocks completed|
Each member was asked to make two blocks that finished at ten inches. Another member offered to stitch the blocks into a top while another member offered to bind the quilt. I pulled my brown scraps and my Around the Block with Judy Hopkins book. This is a good resource for a making blocks because not only are there a variety of blocks but there is a chart to make six sizes of each block in the book.
In Martha's scraps, there was a chunk of dragonfly fabric that I chose as my inspiration fabric. In a couple hours, I had determined the blocks, picked coordinating fabric scraps from my stash and stitched the blocks. As we have finished our blocks, we have e-mailed a photo to group members. Every block is terrific! It is going to be a great quilt.
My two blocks are in the hands of the member who is piecing the blocks together. It always feels good to participate in a community quilt project. This was goal number seven in my April goal post. It was goal number seven in my 2nd Quarter goal post.

In spite of the fact that cases everywhere continue to rise, restrictions are relaxing in some areas. More people are becoming vaccinated in spite of the fact that less doses are available. Sadly, I was notified yesterday that an acquaintance in France, has contracted the British variant of the COVID virus. I hope she is able to heal quickly.
My husband has an appointment next week to receive his second dose of the Phizer vaccine. My friend who has no computer or cell phone received an appointment for her first dose through her naturopath. She received her first dose yesterday. I'm glad she was able to get an appointment.
