More Quilt in A Box Blocks...

I've finally gotten around to taking pictures of the Quilt in a Box blocks the ladies in my quilt bee made for me.  These blocks represent a year long effort by our group.  In a previous post, I showed you the 12 blocks I made for them using their fabric choices...

The blocks I made.
These are the 12 blocks I received in return made out of the fabric I included, which is Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs.

The blocks I received.
I'm not sure how I'm going to put these together.  The setting is up to each quilter to design.  One of our members has already finished her top and I love the pinks and roses in it...

I know these quilts are going to have a very special meaning for each of us because one of our members passed away just a couple of weeks ago.  She was a very talented quilter and hand appliqued a letter as her block for each of us.  This is the one she made for me...

We were all surprised by her passing and we'll miss her.

As usual, I had a helper for even the small task of taking pictures.  This time Sam had to get in on the action...

The weather has turned unseasonably cold here and I've returned to my winter routine of wearing 2 pairs of socks at all times.  I hope you're finding it more pleasant in your neck of the woods!

Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I will put my hope in God! I will praise him again - my Savior and my God! 
Psalm 42:1 (NLT)
