More Pumpkins and Spice blocks

Here I am - and you thought I had left the country. I got two more steps done on the Pumpkins and Spice quilt - and you can see my blocks and Peg's on Cross-Border Quilters. We are having such a good time

This was last week's block - a variation of Goose Tracks - not the easiest block to make (for me, because I don't care for machine piecing)

And this is the block for this week - it is one fourth of the block from last week, but in a different size. I am done for this week, two of each block, and taking some time off until next week when we chat again about our next step.

If you have never made a quilt with a friend - over the internet - since we live in different countries (ok - so Peg lives in British Columbia and I live is Washington - and we aren't that far apart in miles) you should give it a try - it is fun to see what different fabric choices are made and it will be interesting to see how the two quilts turn out.

Have you ever made a quilt with a far-away friend before?

Pumpkins and Spice - step one

Have you met Peg yet? She and I live across the border from each other - and we are doing a quilt together - each on our own side of the border. I wrote about it on my last post

We have both finished our first week's assignment and posted on our new blog, Cross-Border Quilters. Check out our progress. We will be chatting every Tuesday morning and deciding on the next step for the quilt.
