I’ve decided to kick off the New Year with some kisses (XXs).
Tealed with a Kiss (TWX) will be the next quilt out of the traps, and I thought I’d show the blocks I have received so far and below them, three I’ve just made, in case any of you who have kindly offered to make a couple want some visual reference.
The plan is that the 9 darkest blocks will form a large X on the quilt, surrounded by lighter blocks. It’s going to be 5 blocks wide by 6 blocks tall. The bottom row will feature the teal ribbon in the centre of the row, with the two heart blocks either side. I’ll be needing 6 more dark blocks and 12 more light blocks.
Below is a list of the participants. In black are those who’ve already made and sent their blocks. In red are those who’ve offered but not yet made or sent theirs. If you have a preference for dark or light blocks, tell me, so we don’t end up with too many of either sort. It’s first come, first served, though, so have a look at your teal stash and try and let me know as soon as you can which you’d like to make. If there’s a shortfall of anything, I’ll make it up, and if any blocks are made which are surplus to requirements, I’ll use them on a later quilt.
Kate Chiconi: light scrappy X, dark wonky X and teal ribbon
Carla Morris: light ‘elephant’ X
Lynn Hutton: dark ‘star’, dark X
Sue Brown: two heart blocks, bowtie X and 4 patch X
Ali Kelly: light small Xs and light wonky X
Jenny Ladbrooke: two light scrappy Xs
Robin Murphy: two dark X blocks
Kate Bottrell: one dark, one light block
Right, I think I’ll go and make another light block or two…
