|Tea Cup block|
I started making the "block" in 2008. The "directions" that year were to make a block that was tea related. I made this tea cup.
This is the quilt. There were 75 blocks so the quilt is huge! The maker didn't finish her quilt until this past year so that it could hang at the featured artist show which was held last October.
This was her quilt.

The quilt made with blocks inspired by an outdoor walk!

The blocks made into the quilt:

The directions this year are to make a heart, a cat, or a chicken; to use scraps or batiks and to make it any size up to 10 1/2" finished.This year, I made a heart. It will be fun to see what her quilt looks like.
If this looks familiar, I made this pattern for my Totally Hexed quilt that I shared information about in this post.
When the quilt is displayed, I've enjoyed finding my "block" and then seeing what others did. It is fun to see the settings and the quilting!
Had I really been thinking ahead, when the Presidents' quilts were displayed last October, I would have taken photos of all the quilts so you could have seen the variety and I could have photos of the blocks that I have made over the years. . .oh well. . .perhaps, there will be another time!
