20 blocks plus some

I have all 20 of the shop hop blocks done. This one is what I made in place of the ugly mouse they wanted me to make. This little guy is from the Bugs in Jars quilt pattern I used for my grandson's quilt. He is much cuter that the one on the pattern! He still needs his little eye and whiskers but that will only take a few minutes.

This next one is another I made 'instead'. This spool was much better than the cat they shop planned for the block. But I have to think of my grandchildren! That cat would have given them nightmares! I am not sure what some of the shop owners are thinking when they design their blocks!

And this is Martha Washington's Star - get it? Martha WASHINGTON? This pattern and the spool are on my block a day calendar that I never remember to change! Let's just say the spool is on January 10 and that is the one that has been showing for say about 6 months!

So if you want to see all of the blocks I made for this year's quilt you can go here. You will also find the quilts I have put together from previous hops.

And last, but not least, is all the leftovers from all the blocks. This baby is about 15" X 18" and might just end up on the back of the shop hop quilt - or maybe it will be a doll quilt. Right now, I am leaning toward part of the back.
