At our guild meeting we swapped blocks, we even had enough extras to include everyone in the challenge. Can't wait to see the projects. 

In the meantime, we had great quilts to see and drool over.

Svetlana made two drooly worthy quilts whose back we even loved.

Look, Nan finished a quilt with a fall theme way before fall! Impressive on many levels.

Stephanie is making this super cool Deer head. Can't wait to see it finished!

Jen made everyone jealous with her projects from Sewapalooza. She met Tula Pink!

Cool journal/notebook

I even love the back!
