Fussy Square Block Swap Round 16: People & Happy Mother's Day

 On Flickr there is a group called Fussy Square Block Swap. I've mentioned this group before. We make 12 blocks per month of the chosen theme. This month it's PEOPLE. Sign ups are open until May 15th and the blocks are due May 31st. All blocks are to be made with the economy block foundation found HERE. If you join us please read the part about how you have to download the pattern THEN print it. If you print from your computer screen the blocks will be 4 1/4" instead of the required 4 1/2".

These are my peeps. The women are from a Loralie Design called Gone Shopping.
My extra block (my plus one) is this:
If you're going shopping you need a free parking spot with extra cash to spend!!

These are 2 blocks I'm keeping for myself.

All these will be mailed to Laurie--our swap guru. She makes sure everyone gets 12 blocks in return for the 12 they send in. Some people sign up for 2 spots so they make 24 blocks--2 different sets of 12. These ladies were so much fun to make. They make me happy, I hope they will make my swap friends happy too.

I made a selvage quilt using these ladies.

I called the quilt "Gone Fabric Shopping" 2009.

Look at all the selvages I cut off the many pieces of fabric I've gone shopping for over the years.
(This is a small dent in my selvages!)

And while I was having fun playing with these ladies I made a tiny quilt ornament for my mother.
Happy Mother's Day! I love you!

She won't be allergic to the cats on the back.   :)

I'm sharing this on Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Friday.


  1. Loved your colourful ladies swap blocks :)

  2. I've been collecting selvages for ages and they've gone nowhere - I like what you did with yours. Swapping is so much fun I hope you get lots of goodies back.
