Let's Eat


“Community Supper” is moving right along. Since I posted my request on May 16, I have received 53 blocks and have promises for 9 more. I am beyond thrilled with this response. I have a preliminary layout of 64 10” blocks with 10 more 5” blocks along the top with a header block. This is all subject to change if I get more than 74 blocks. I may have to make some blocks 2 sided – again that is the beauty of the potholder method!

I’ve decided from now on I will post each block after it is completely done (quilted and bound with label attached to the back). I have spent almost as much time organizing and communicating as I have actually quilting so I feel this is one way I can stay organized with the posting. I am working in no particular order so don’t worry if you don’t see your block right away.

So, here are the next 3 quilted and bound blocks.
Randy (Barrister’s Block) Randy visits Hawaii quite often, can you tell? 


Karen K. (Karen used to belong to my local group but she moved to Texas where the sky is big and the weather is warmer! 


Debby D. from Oregon. I think Debby’s block and her message say it all! We all need to have a heart and look out for one another. 


I wish I could express how much fun I am having with this project. I thank each and every one of you!

This is a very interesting project. You came up with a good idea. I can see where this can be time consuming but oh so worth it in the end.

Your Community Potluck is going to be a fabulous collection of quilter's near and far.

It is very fun to see each block and how it looks as it is prepared to be a part of the potluck.

Community Supper is looking to be the best quilt of the year! So fun to see each new post as you complete the blocks. What a wonderful idea this was.

Lovely blocks! I'm still hoping to get a block to you. Mailing things off in a timely fashion is SEW not my strong suit, but I'm going to try!

Randy D. said...

WOW! The blocks are looking great.
And, btw, my fabric is a Kaffe Fassett, which could easily look like a Hawaiian print.
Which is probably why I was attracted to it!
Thanks so much for doing this.
I was going to suggest that if you have too many blocks, pass them on to someone else to make another quilt--maybe the desserts?? Just an idea!

I love each block featured as you progress. It helps tell the story.

I think this is going to be the most interesting and diverse quilt I've ever seen, coming from so many quilters. I love seeing the blocks as you go. It's a great idea, Wendy but lots of time for you to layer, quilt, and stitch together!

ButterZ said...

I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: Emutemple@gmail.com or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
