Last year some of my friends & I got together and decided to make exchange blocks for a "Birch Tree" quilt top.
You can purchase the pattern from Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts here.
Her patterns are very well written and easy to construct.
Each of us chose a solid background Kona fabric and made 20 blocks with that one solid.
I had the Valentine pink blocks.
Then we got together at a fall retreat hosted by Quilt Taffy and exchanged them.
Here they are in piles ready for choosing.
Aren't they pretty?
I set mine together and had to show them off at the retreat
It was such a fun quilt block to make.
I was able to use up small bits of my scraps - very small bits!
I quilted mine with a single wave going horizontal.
I didn't want much quilting because I have a scrumptious pink waffle minky on the back that I didn't want to smash with the quilting.
I had a funky piece of fabric for the binding that had all the block colors in it - oh, yeah!
This very bright, happy quilt is now living in Pennsylvania - they love it!
