These are 16 of the blocks - I laid them out to see what the finished quilt would look like. I'm pretty pleased. This is a pattern from an old Fons and Porter magazine.
BDSI was a lot of fun. We joined in via Twitter. I had never used Twitter before, so that took some getting used to. It's like being in a big room and listening in on various random conversations. Then, you just jump in. I can't see myself being a big Tweeter, but for something like this, with a limited group of people, I quite liked it. I set up my laptop next to my sewing machine and checked it every time I got up to iron. There were giveaways set up ahead of time, and timed giveaways during the day. It felt very much like a retreat, except that I could leave and get myself a coffee or have a quick break whenever I wanted. I would definitely joing in a Twitter quilting event again. The group was talking about doing one on either New Years Eve or New Years Day.
