My Birthday Quilt

Posted Sunday, October 30th, 2011 in baby quilt, Quilting | Tags: , ,

I have been participating in a birthday block exchange on the Garden Web Quilting Forum this year. There are 13 people in the group. Each person chose the block pattern and fabrics they would like to receive and the list was sent to everyone in the group. We made a block each month and sent it to the birthday person. In October it was my turn to receive blocks.¬† I chose the block called “Road to California”. My fabric choices were any color 1930’s fabric with bleached muslin for the background.

I received 13 blocks  (one person made two blocks) and I made three more for a total of sixteen blocks. I arranged them to form five stars (can you find them?) and added a border.

The backing is bleached muslin to match the background fabric.
