My Blue Heaven

Every 2 years my Virginia state quilt guild (VCQ) has a Celebration retreat with classes by national teachers.  Another fun aspect of the weekend is a 'block lotto' where particpants contribute blocks in hopes of winning a set.  I won these blocks in 2010, and finally pulled them out to try to have a finished quilt to take along this year for show and tell.  This weekend, I squared up the blocks, remade 2 that were a bit too small, and sewed the blocks and rows together.  I'm pleased with the layout, as there was quite a range of color in the blues.  I found a couple of great batiks for borders that should further pull all the colors together.  Stay tuned to see if I get this finished by late April!
