Week 1 of 2010

Okay! Here we go for another year! I am going by Quilt Pixie's list, but if anyone has any other suggestions for future blocks, let me know.

This week's block is called 'Wheel of Time'. That seems appropriate for the first week of 2010, don't you think?

I am trying to figure out a way to keep these blocks separated from last year's blocks. If I put 'week 1' in the labels it will become mixed in with those. So I think we should put the year first, such as 'week 10-1'. Does that make sense? Let me know if anyone has a better idea.

Edit: I changed the label to: name, 10 week 1

Hi: I'm making dresden plates these days, so I'd suggest some circular ones.

Nice block, Hetty. Going with Donna's list will work fine...less work for you as "Host". I'd suggest we begin labeling for 2010 with "Name 2010 week 1",because the 2009 blocks for week 10 might mix with the year 10 blocks... or is that not a concern? (or not a possibility... my electronic skills are not exemplary, for sure!)

Hi Hetty and a very Happy New Year to you me dear.

How about we just put Block 1a then Block 2a 3a 4a 5a 6a 7a 8a

then in 2011 we can put block 1b etcetc

Now THATS looking ahead!!! hahahaha

I like Jan's idea! I plan to keep making these blocks as long as my old sewing machine holds out. I'd even be willing to try some paper pieced blocks this year.

Happy 2010!
I sewed up my first block for the year, and I'll add it here in a minute. I'm not clear about what's been settled on as far as labelling, but I'll change mine whenever the group reaches a final decision on that.
Hetty, I'm game for whatever blocks you offer us -- thanks for leading the group! I do prefer piecing to applique (!!) but I'll play along with each week's challenge, and just consider some of them a "learning experience".
Jeanne :)

I like the new block & label. I joined the swap in late 2009 & am working my way backwards; I admit I was wondering how I was going to keep track of which week 1, week 2, etc. block I was dealing with.

It is good of you to take over; this blog. & good of Quilt Pixie to start it, of course!

Hi Jenn,
Quiltpixie is away tending to Real Life. If you drop a note to Hetty, our new leader, she'll get you set up.
