I'm not dead.

Even though it feels like I have been. It's been an insane couple of months. We moved; my grandmother and a close friend passed away, and I had I's been insane. I'm here, though, and am FINALLY caught up. YAY!! So here's a pic of all the blocks that have now gone postal. So sorry for the delay guys. Please forgive me. :(

Oh! Is everyone's addy the same? 'Cause I thought I had gotten an email awhile back about someone's new address....maybe..maybe not. :P

Hi Ladies,

I have July and since it's my son's birth month I let him choose which block we'll be doing. He picked Pinwheels, more specifically Block 2 from ps i quilts quilt a long. Please follow Rachel's instructions, since this is the size block I'm going to go with. I'll be sending 3 different fabrics...2 with a quitar theme and a white Kona. There's will be enough fabric to make 2 blocks and I would love it you would, if you can't do but one that's okay, too. I'll be sending out the envelopes by next wednesday. And if you have any questions please email me:)

Tracy's April Blocks

Hi girls, it's been quiet on the CtoC Block party. How are you doing with those crazy April blocks? If anyone is having serious "quilters block" regarding these Story People characters, please don't feel bad about it. You can make me a block of postage stamps, or wonky star or anything your little heart desires. Any shape or size is just fine. I have several blocks that are exactly what I was hoping for and I think that improv blocks using the solids would be a perfect compliment the blocks that I have received.


I also started this as a post on flickr.

A message from Meg

Hi ladies! Anita and I have switched months! So I'll be doing June and she will be doing November. I just posted my inspiration mosaic to our flickr pool. Carissa, over at the Common Threads Bee, had a great idea for her month this spring, and I was so green with envy, I'm pulling a page from her book--literally! I'm a librarian, and a bookshelf quilt is a natural choice.

So, here's what we'll do.

I'm going to send everyone a FQ or so of the same background fabric, an ivory solid. What I'm asking you to do is make 12.5" (unfinished) tall bookshelves full of books made with your scraps for the books! Tall, short, fat, thin--use the mosaic for some inspiration. Look at your bookshelves at home, go to the library and the bookstore--all great places to get inspired for this one. You can make several narrow blocks, one big long block--go nuts. These should come together fairly quickly.

If you have no scraps, shame on you! Kidding! Seriously, if you're feeling that your scrap bin is too skimpy for this project, let me know and I will send along some of my own. My hope for this is to wind up with an array of books from all different fabrics, which I will then sash and border in dark brown "shelves".

Packages will be going out in the next day or so, so everyone should have their fabric by the beginning of next week.

Let me know if you have any questions--thanks, ladies!
