Here’s my entry for SewCalGal’s Christmas Quilt Show 2010.

Several years ago I participated in a Christmas paper-piecing exchange. Each person was responsible for completing 12 blocks, 11 of which were then sent to a coordinator, who in turn sent you back 11 blocks that others completed.

My block is the Christmas ornament, third row down in the middle. It was paper-pieced from one of Carol Doak’s older books. My wall hanging finishes around 30″x40″.

    What a wonderful quilt! I love those swaps and exchanges. So much easier to make multiples of a block than 12 different PP blocks! Really a wonderful quilt!
