Hi Fellow Block Party Gang, There seems to be a discrepancy between the block that was assigned for this week and the block that was actually posted. Did I say that right? It's confusing for me too and I have a list of blocks for this year. Why do I have a list? Well, let me get explain this week's block and then I will tell you.
Please do the block that was posted, It is called 'Cross and Ring'. I think it will be easiest to do this block for this week. 'Cross and Ring' was supposed to have been posted on December 25th. The block called 'Double Cross' which was meant for this week, will be moved to December 25th.. So we'll just sort of change them around. If you want to do both, then go ahead. You will probably not want to do a block on the Christmas week anyways.
Now for the reason I know all this. Donna, aka Quilt Pixie, has decided to retired from the block party. Life is getting in the way. I'm sure you can understand that. Since she and I had talked about this idea of a Friday Block Party long before we got started this year, she has asked me to take over for her. I had originally said that I would help, but so far this year, I have done nothing except look forward to each Friday's posting. Donna sent me a list of blocks from the Quilters Cache which she had made up at the start of this year. It's a long list and there are enough blocks to keep us partying right through to the end of 2010 and then some.
Hope I cleared some of that up for you. Let me know what you think about our switch. And if you have any ideas for blocks or want to do a specific one, let me know. We don't have to stick with the QC blocks.
