It has been an extraordinary month for the F²F block swap.
January’s blocks were completed by all members in just 5 days. You can see them, as always, by going to the gallery page. Our friend Pat, who was formerly Miss May, is now Miss January and all the remaining members shift forward a month. If you want to know the background, please visit first this post, followed by this post, which will explain everything. All the blocks have either arrived in the US, or are en route, to be assembled on Pat’s behalf by Sue, quilted by her son (who has a longarm quilting business), and thence to Pat. This will be the first quilt in the F²F block swap to be assembled, and it will be marvellous to see the work of all our hands in one place, making a thing of beauty.
February’s blocks have already started to come in, and I’m very excited to see that so far there’s been a great effort to address Emmely’s love of modern, improvised blocks. Thank you for taking so many of us out of our comfort zones to try something new, Emmely! She has asked for blocks in any shade of green, so there should be an amazing variety to look at by the end of the month.
We’re ahead of ourselves this month’s end. With only 4 months of the block swap left, I hope we can keep the impetus up.
