Aunt Dinah

Here's my first Aunt Dinah square for the block exchange I'm involved in. I think I've said before that my friends from my old neighborhood would get together and swap blocks at least once a year. This is our second in 6 months ( I have not put the blocks together from my first). We've planned on this since October and I am just now getting around to my blocks. We picked a block and then decided to do blue with a cream background. I have different blues and was going to use all the same background, but today when I pulled this fabric out I decided I may use it in a different quilt. I bought it years ago and decided on white instead of cream for the quilt I was planning at the time. I really like it and I think I'm going to use it to go with a layer cake of Fig and Plum.

Anyway, I thought I'd post this to make sure I'm on the same page as everyone else. If you are involved in this swap (Kristin, Erica, Anna and anyone else who may be reading) and I am completely off on color or something let me know! Don't fret, they will all be trimmed and straightened by the day of the swap.

A blog full of great ideas and me without my sewing machine!! I'm away from my home this week so there's no sewing going on but if I WAS home I'd be highly inspired by all that I've just seen!! I found you thru Freda's Hive - and I'm so glad I did! xo, Nan
