Serving up the next batch of 10" blocks in our Community Supper quilt:
Marjorie Farquharsen, Chatham, Massachusetts. Marge and I share a deep passion for quilt and quiltmaker history. She has chaired many committees of the American Quilt Study Group over the years. She said she is off on a new tack by incorporating bright contemporary fabrics with subtle reproductions. I hope you stay on this tack as I love this block! Thanks Marge!
Deb Boucher, Edgecomb, Maine. Deb has a longarm business, “Tea Rose Quilting”. She belongs to my local group and always brings some delightful quilt for show and tell. I love this star block and especially the pawprint fabric. Thanks Deb!
Jo Butterfield, Mildoura, Victoria, Australia. Jo says, ”I’m so happy I could take part in your little bit of fun. This is not actually a reject but a trial of the pattern we did in a class/tutorial years ago. Have fun joining all your blocks together.” Thanks Jane, I have been having fun finishing all these beauties!
I had a near disaster with Jo’s label. When I went to press the edges under, I turned it around and noticed that it was completely blank. Yikes! I was pretty sure she had used a friXion pen that is supposed to disappear after ironing. Guess I proved that it works! I had heard that if you put it in the freezer the marks will come back. This too proved correct! So, I simply traced over Jo’s writing with a permanent pen and voila!
Karen Dever, Moorestown, New Jersey. I took a class form Karen several years ago and she is a lot of fun. Karen and her husband got stranded on a cruise ship and subsequent port of entry and were quarantined for weeks. We can all learn from Karen’s experience that no matter where you travel, ALWAYS take more quilting than you think you will need! Apparently, Karen made her own quarantine story quilt. I am anxious to see it. I adore this block and used one of my favorite reproductions to bring it up to 10”. Thanks Karen!
Andrea Kozoil, Tipp City, Ohio. Andrea was the recipient of a little quilt I made in Lori’s (Humble Quilts) swap a few years ago. I can’t find any reason for you to reject this one so I suspect (like me) you simply made one too many for the quilt. You can’t go wrong with a log cabin block. This one looked like Christmas colors to me so I used one of my favorite Judie Rothermel fabrics on the back.
Carol Lewin, Hay Springs, Nebraska. Carol says: “Have disliked this block because of the stem. Made one and quit. Glad I didn’t buy the kit!” I don’t see anything wrong with the stem, but I am so happy that you do and were willing to part with it. Thanks Carol!
Cherie Moore, Belleville, Illinois. Cherie says:” his is a reject block from Barbara Brackman’s Civil War block of the week. I remade a few that didn’t quite work for one reason or another. Well, I think it works fine here Cherie. Thanks Cherie!
Joy Murphy, Hillsborough, North Carolina, (The Joyful Quilter). Joy says: “Thanks for turning this “oops” into something other than another UFO.” Thank you Joy as this is a great addition to the mix!
Kyle Redente, Fort Collins, Colorado. (Timeless Reflections) “Leftover Logs” from Colorado. Simply perfect. I’ve been following Kyle and her spectacular quilts for years. I consider her to be the queen of label making. This one is not only beautiful, it also has the perfect sentiment! Thanks Kyle!
Darlene Reinke, Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin. Darlene said – “I found this in the attic. I can’t believe I bought the striped backing, it’s so thin you can see through it. I learned a long time ago, if it’s worth my time, it’s worth good fabric.” So true! However, this makes the perfect "orphan" block. Thanks Darlene!
Kathy Wagner, Guelph, Ontario, Canada. (Kathy’s Quilts) I had to trim (with her permission) Kathy’s huge block down to fit the 10” requirement. I hated to trim off all that hot pink as I think the color reminds of us of these wild and crazy times. But, the center with the adorable Russian nesting doll will instead remind us that we can all fit together comfortably by using a little common sense and kindness. Thanks Kathy! Sandy (My Material Creations) sent me this adorable yo-yo cheater print which I felt was perfect for this bright block.
Stay tuned for the last batch of big blocks and the rest of the mini (5”) blocks. Can’t wait to sink my teeth into those little guys. I love working with small potholder blocks. It makes the bindings go so fast!
I am so enjoying looking at (and reading about) all these wonderful blocks. And ... the extremely cool backs! I will now be on the lookout for more cheater prints!ReplyDelete

Again, so wonderful to see all these blocks!ReplyDelete
Am enjoying reading the background stories about each block as much as viewing the completed blocks and labels.ReplyDelete
Great save on the frixion save! Whew!ReplyDelete
I saw a quilt at a show once where all the marks came back during shipping and it hung with them :( I felt bad for the quilter.
It is so fun to see my blog friends' blocks.
Love them all!!!
the backings and labels are great too.
So many wonderful additions! So tickled that my pretty nesting doll is part of your Community Supper quilt!ReplyDelete
What a great bunch of blocks, The Hits just keep coming! And I love all your backing fabrics, so fun!ReplyDelete
I can't believe how many different cheater fabrics you have! You continue to make all those orphan blocks look pretty special. Thanks for including my simple little block.ReplyDelete
Oh Wendy this community dinner is such a lovely project. I wish I had been more focused on your blog lately, I would've sent an orphan your way. This will be a magical project when complete. Thanks for sharing the journey with us. MelissReplyDelete
This will be a feast of a quilt!ReplyDelete
Another bounty of quilt blocks! I have never seen that yo-yo print. Looks like the real thing.ReplyDelete
Thanks for showing my log cabin block. You are correct that it's not a reject. I made 64 red and white blocks, but then decided on a 7 by 9 setting (63 blocks) and so had one left over.ReplyDelete
