Odd experience

Some years ago I was a dedidcated swapper of blocks and fabric on various quiltinglists at Yahoo. One of the swaps I participated in was Nine Patch and Stars made from Repro fabrics. The result was a nice collection of blocks.
But like many of my swaps this one is still a UFO.......

Repro fabrics is not what I normaly have in my stash. I had to buy espesialy for this swap. Left over fabrics I've kept together with blocks.

I'm a regularly buyer of various magazines. Just a few .......... ;-)
The Australian Magazine Patchwork & Stitching is one.

In Vol 7 No 5 my eyes almost popped out! My blocks in the magazine!

I recognized my block immediately. It was like meeting an old and dear friend. Yes, you got it right. I swapped blocks with Wendy Whellum who made the quilt Nine Patch and Stars from swapped blocks. In the next picture you can see my contribution (two blocks) below the magazine. One of Wendy's blocks on right hand side of magazine.

Now I just have to make that quilt, don't you think?

Yes, you do need to make the quilt, and I think it will be great. Nice when old is new again.

Be sure and show a picture when you are done!
