Have you heard about The Around The World Quilting Bee? This project was put together by the clever and oh so organized SummerSadie. There are 24 people from 5 different countries around the world participating. I'm thinking of using the above as my starter block. I can't decide between this or something in the 30s fabrics.

How this works is we each have an address to send our starter block to. That person makes a block that will look nice with your block and sends it with your block to the next person on the list and that person makes a block and forwards it with the others, etc. In the end we will each have a quilt that is made up of blocks from around the world. I will keep you posted as the blocks come in as it should be interesting to see the starter blocks and how the quilts are turning out. This should be lots of fun and I hope you will enjoy it with me. PS: Several people have asked about this block. It is called Twisted Sister and the ruler is put out by Ami Sims. It's a fun easy block.

Until Next Time: Happy Quilting

Wow I just love that block, could you let me know what the name of it is and where I can get directions on how to make it.

Love the colors and smiles

I like it, too. If you do send that, can you send info on how to make? I wouldn't mind making a whole baby quilt of that block.
