I made this little table runner for a Bunco gift in April 2013. The theme was Spring.

I wanted to use up all of my 9 patch blocks that have been made for me by members of my friendship groups. I think I had over 200 4.5" blocks and have made 3 quilts using these blocks. I just had a small pile left so wanted to finish the 9 patch blocks. I used all but 2 in this quilt! It was inspired by Bonnie Hunter who has been working on her Sister's Choice recently on her blog. I washed it in the machine when it was finished so it has a nice wrinkly look to it and I like it.
One of the ladies in my guild, Kathleen Bond, asked me last month if I would do a block for her. She handed me a small block with a basket machine appliqued on it. She asked that I add anything I wanted to the basket and return it to her next month after signing it. So, I added some flowers and a heart to the basket. I think it turned out really cute. Hopefully, I'll get a picture of the entire quilt when she gets it finished.
In 2011, In Stitches did a row exchange that had to be red/white/blue. Each person made a row (all identical) for every one else in the group that wanted to participate. Seven members participated. I tore some of the rows apart to make my quilt so left 4 intact for the borders and rearranged the others for the center. Finished on 3/25/13. This quilt is 42" x 55".
