Joan T and Teresa W Swap Blocks
Liz and Collette Swap Blocks
Swap blocks arrived at my door.  Teresa W brought her blocks on Monday.  Joan T, Liz, and Collette blocks arrived on Tuesday.  There are still a couple to arrive before I can start the sorting out and send back to everyone who participated.  I am very excited by all the variety in the reds, as will everyone else.


Konqueror, January 2014 UFO
I have decided to make my Survivor a bit smaller than what the pattern suggested.  I want the look of the design, to experience a new teacher in Joyce Weeks, and along the way use a different kind of ruler.  My project gave me all of these.  Mine will finish at 50" x 70" instead.  I might be hard to see the different colors used; they are gray, purple, black, and rosy gray for the background.  With a good sewing night tonight and tomorrow finishing Konqueror by the end of the month looks possible!

I can't believe the progress you have made on Konqueror! Very understated pattern in those colors--almost like a low volume quilt. Cool!

The red string blocks are really nice. Will give a great punch in a quilt. Konqueror is very nice, colors didn't show up clear. Nice pattern.
