Guild Challenge Quilts

We were given an orphan block at our guild a few months ago. We had to make something out of it. I was lucky enough to get a patriotic block. I had lots of blocks sent to me by my dear online friends. It was easy to put them into a sampler type quilt. I won second place-----there was a tie for first or I would have been third place. This one is also for our military in Afghanistan. I can fit 4 in a box and then mail them off. I buy the 14 x 14 boxes at Wal-Mart for under a dollar. This is much easier than search
ing all over for boxes.

Quilt From H*ll

I saw this pattern------cannot even remember the name and thought it was fabulous. I must have put it on the design wall a dozen times and ripped and resewed sections. I still think something was not right but figured it was good enough. I will NOT be making this pattern again. But I do love the center design. This will be off to Afghanistan. I FINALLY have my big Janome back and working great. It makes binding so much easier to put on. I had to send it to Alabama to the dealer I bought it from after the local dealer was unable to repair it.
