I am starting 2014 on a good note, posting on the first day of the year!!  Last year I signed up for a block swap and below is the block I have just made for a swap partner.  I love this block and its a pity its such a fiddle to do as I would love a quilt made with lots of them. 

At my local quilting group we are doing a Row by Row  in 2014.  The theme for each row will be selected every second month.  The first was a choice of Log Cabin or Embellishment.  Below is a Twisted Log Cabin block.  Instead of making a bed quilt I am going to make a wall hanging, about 20 inches wide.  These blocks finish up 6.25 as apparently foundation piecing them with so many small pieces draws it up.  I intend to make 3 blocks and add a piece to either end which I will embellish in some way.  Yet to be decided!!!
