Jackie's block swap

It's Sunday, so of course we had a sewing day.  Jackie worked on her block swap for the Charleston Modern Quilt Guild.  She is providing the background and a solid piece of fabric for one set of the flying geese.  The block is called "Follow the Leader" and it is from Modern Blocks:  99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers.  But Jackie made a slight change-she wants a 24 inch finished block, yes each block will be 24 inches.  Jackie hopes to receive another 18 blocks from the guild members to make a king-size quilt.

I (Kim) have my block completed, someone had to test the pattern for her.  We put both blocks on the design wall to take pictures.  Isn't it amazing that by turning your blocks, it you get a different view?

We are still working on our racing t-shirt quilt and plan to have it at the long-armed quilter this week.  To give you a preview, here is the drawing/plan to complete this quilt.

Now you know what we have been up to.  Tell us what you think.
