Paisley Exchange

My Utah quilt group took the opportunity of us all getting together for the quilt show to do a block exchange. Last spring we decided to do another exchange using only Prairie Paisley fabrics and any star pattern (of your choice) in a 12" block to exchange.

Here are the results:


I was so excited to get these blocks. I think this is our best exchange yet. Perhaps because we have matured as a group, these blocks were all fairly challenging patterns and were all very well executed.

My block is the third down on the left side- the one with the blue star within the red ring. I love this pattern.

So now I just have to decide how to put them all together. Any ideas?

Oooooooooo, I love these blocks! Do you know how you are going to be setting them yet? I have a kit with these fabrics. I really need to get it made, I love these fabrics!

By the way, could you tell me how to add the neat little link for the church to my sidebar?

They are so pretty and go together so well. I love the red white and blue theme. Just classic. Anything you do will be nice.

I agree, I think it's the best one we have done yet and I really can't wait for the next one I signed up for two sets. Yippee.
