I also made some blocks for quilts for the girls.
Actually, my plan was to make diamond quilts (like the bottom of the picture). As you can see, though, I didn't make enough "reverse" blocks. I'll have to get busy on those here at home. I'm using a used dryer sheet as a foundation for the string piecing. I won't have to tear off the dryer sheets before putting the quilt together, because the dryer sheets are VERY light. I DID read about using the dryer sheets somewhere in cyberspace, but (for the life of me) I can't remember where.
I also worked on a table runner and got some hand quilting done on my "caged" bias series. I didn't get pictures of those, though. Are you working on Christmas gifts?
