At Rikstäckets yearly meeting last year my friends Marica and Louise
And I decided on a swap with blocks..
The plus block!
 
And haven't this been a fun swap or what …
Have enjoyed making them and receiving them…
We decided to sew four blocks each…representing the colours we wanted…
and then send to next in turn to sew …this way we always had some blocks to sew on!
This is how my first round looked like…
My blocks and my the blocks my friends did sew for me…
And I changed what I did sew from one colour to another…
or a dark or a light and sent away, depending on what I thought I needed for my quilt…
Here is a light round…
And here is a blue round…
 
And a pink and green …
I now have lost count on how many rounds we have sent and sewn…
we had so much fun we almost didn't want to stop..
 
And I even had a surprise mailing…
From Krista Hennebury, author of the book “Make it Take it”…
She sent these blocks as a thankyou for setting up a contact with Rikstäcket,
that led to that she is now one of the teachers at this years yearly meeting in Upplands Väsby…
Hope she will learn us Swedes to go more modern!!
 
Have now sewn the blocks together with a rectangle..
I so love the black blocks Marica did sew!!
 
And for the moment I have the top in two pieces..
Just waiting to be quilted!!
My Plus Friends Quilt!
