That's What Friends Are For

Back in April 2012 a very good buddy, Rachaeldaisy, put a call out for some house blocks.  I love house blocks so I dug out my house patterns and got sewing and sent them to Rachael.  In exchange Rachael also sent me some house blocks. I will let the pictures show you how lucky I was.

How good was that! I am ashamed I am only posting about it now. I seemed to go into a blogging slump around then.  Rachael has been designing up a storm and has a quilt touring in the USA.  Her quilt for the Bloggers Quilt Festival is really something special. You can read about it here.

If you are wondering what I sent.  The photos are below.  Basically I made her two mansions as the blocks are on the larger side.  I also sent her an emergency pouch with some goodies.

I would really like to try and do a non-traditional setting for my blocks.  However because that is out of my comfort zone the blocks are still waiting for me. I suspect I will need hand holding so don't hold your breath waiting to see that quilt and don't be surprised if it ends up looking traditional in design.

Do you know, I'd forgotten about those blocks I made. It's fun to see them now, I used some pretty crazy fabric combos! I've still got my pile of blocks. I do have plans for putting them together but the time just hasn't arrived yet. I love the first aid kit, i have it with my sewing things and the bandaids have come in handy, and so have the little treats!! Thanks for being such a great buddy.
