Swap blocks

I just realized I forgot to put up the pics of the blocks that were swapped for Marie Bostwick's February's Women's Heart Health block swap. We used the heart pattern from her Broken Hearts Mending quilt featured in her book, A Single Thread. I really, REALLY loved that book and love these blocks. Here they are:

Dorothy and Lillian made these two.

I made this one (tho it is not one I swapped) and Beth made the other.

I made this one and swapped it and Patti made this one.

Marie Bostwick actually squeezed some time in to join us in this swap and made this one.

Shellie and Debbie made these two

Karen and Sandra S. made these

Patrice and Pam made these.

Sandra and Jacque made these.

Now you can see why I am so excited!! They did a GREAT job and made my job as swap coordinator sooooooo easy. We had everything from newbies to veterans making these blocks and I don't think I have ever met a nicer, more encouraging, caring group of ladies anywhere. Sandra, a new member of our Cobbled Court Quilt Circle, even sent each one of us a little present...thanks!!!!

Just tonight the PERFECT layout came to me for these blocks. I am going to work on the top tomorrow night and then just have to work out the border. I will share a pic of how I put these together as soon as it's done. I can't wait to see how everyone else does theirs!!


  1. How do you do it??? You are so right on top of everything. I love these blocks. I havent found the right colors yet. Working on it. Up on my new design wall. Just hanging there.... So much to do...

  2. These Heart Blocks are all so very beautiful and charming. Can't wait to see the blocks put to quilt tops/quilted in the future! Ladies great work! Teresa (cobbled court quilt circle)
