Quilting Bee Swap - January

I joined the 2010 Quilting Bee - one block per month swap on the Quilters' Message Board. The concept is pretty neat - I pick a theme for the whole year, but each month a different person makes me a block with my theme. I then get 12 different partners for whom I make a block with each one's chosen theme. My partner for January - and we've already sent and received - was Mary. Her chosen theme was snowmen/women, so I paper-pieced her one of each for her block.

My theme for the year is the out-of-doors (mountains, desert, etc.) so Mary did me a moon over mountain block. Isn't it pretty? Thanks, Mary!

Those quilt blocks are wonderful! I made my very first quilt this year, what a journey! What a great idea, a quilting bee swap. The world of quilting is new to me. It is so fascinating. I really admire quilters. Best wishes for the new year and happy quilting!
