Play time

I got a package in the mail last night. The signature blocks from The Lady of Steeles Hand Embroidery group swap :) We originally started out with about 26 of us but the numbers eventually decreased to 19. Now I just have to decide what kind of quilt I want to make my blocks into. The photo shows the blocks laid out as they came out the package. Now I get to "play"with the arrangement for a while.
This block belongs to Barbara our "long suffering" swap hostess. She dedicated almost 8 months to keeping us on track, moving along and on occasion getting very strict in her own special way :)
To everyone that participated, Barbara, Deb, Cat, Marion, Donna, Wanda, Gloria, Arlene, Alva, Dixie, Denise, Latha, Shasta, Patti, Janice, Candji, Linda and Kathryn  a big THANK YOU. I love the blocks and am looking forward to seeing all the finished results.
Countries and States represented - Australia, India, Saudi Arabia, Tennessee, Texas, Idaho, Missouri, Georgia, Ohio, Indiana, Washington, New York, Michigan and North Carolina
