Look at my loot!

I wrote previously about these Jacobs Ladder blocks and that they were being made for the Taupo Quiltmakers raffle blocks.

I liked the colour scheme and felt they would make a good masculine quilt.  I have four sons so it would not be hard to find a recipient.

Anyway, I put four blocks into the draw and last night my name was pulled out of the hat, so I came home with sixteen blocks with one more to come.

I especially like this one - chocolate and flowers, how nice.

The challenge has been issued as to whether I can have a quilt top made by Wednesday when our Sweet Peas group meets.

A bit of playing with the blocks, and with some decisions made I might just get there.

Nothing motivates like a challenge! Congratulations for being the lucky recipient of the blocks.

I love the colors - definitely masculine, but also calming, which will allow the blocks to create a pleasing pattern.

They couldn't have been won by a better recipent! I heard someone say that they had won twice and still had all the blocks at home ... I know we can count on you Peggy! See you on Wednesday ;-)
