I plan to work on some heritage blocks that are going into a couple of quilts that are part of a guild challenge. I have offered up an optional President's Challenge for members - a catagory is selected (September was Home Life) and they have to research and make a block(s) that represent Home, share any history and what their resource was.
We'll , also, be sharing settings, sashings, borders and quilting along the way as well. Members can select their own design, use just a single block project, or how ever big they want to go.
Their challange to me is to make a 6" finished block from their shared block finds. This is my smaller May Basket (which I am just noticing a mistake to fix). Their blocks were Dresdan Plate, Posy Basket, Log Cabin (several variations), Broken Dishes, Pinapple, Shoo Fly, Lightening Strike, Miller's Delight, Cats & Mice, House That Jack Built, Falling Leaves. So I have a lot of small blocks to make.
