I haven't added photographs of my Sylvias blocks for a while so thought I had better do some catching up.  Below are another dozen done (getting there).  It feels good to be over half way now in fact I think I ONLY have about another 30 to go as I have completed some right at the bottom as part of the SBS Block of the Week I participate in.  I am going to love coming to the last row as I have already done half the row.
My completed quilt will be a bit different to the original as I have substituted blocks I don't like for some I made as a block of the month with my quilting group a couple of years ago and I wanted to include them in this quilt.  We all have favourites I'm sure and also some we dislike.  I am not fond of curved blocks eg. drunkeds path and similar so these are mainly the ones I have omitted for my friendship blocks.  I'm sure Sylvia would like it if we made it our own version.  Mine certainly will be
