Blockheadz Block Stories

For me, the most fun thing about running the BlockheadZ quilt block swap was seeing all of the creativity of the members.  Some girl's blocks were traditional and some were modern.  There were a couple of interesting notes:

Carrie said she felt lazy with her project so she sent out various squares from a layer cake and asked the girls to make "quilter's choice blocks" (whatever two blocks they chose.)  Again, the variety was fun:
(the colors really match, 
they just look different due to various cameras)

Jennifer has us make star blocks for a quilt for her first child who is on the way.  What fun to be part of a baby's first quilt!
Jennifer made these star blocks for our examples
(she has added the border in these)

What fun prints!
Jenny G. sent fabric and simply said to make wonky stars, adding however many we chose to our 12" blocks

Here is a mosaic sample of the everyone's various blocks. FYI, the first pic on the top row is Lara's blocks where she almost has her top finished!
