Something to Crow About quilt camp/retreat. I won 21 blocks (including my 3). The expectation is that the block challenge winner will bring her completed quilt to the following year's retreat. (Hey, it could happen. For some quilters.)
|the blocks are so varied, just can't show them all|
When a quilter had put her name on the back of her block, I wrote it on the front. I just felt so honored to have such lovely and talented ladies sharing their handiwork with me.

I don't do my own quilting, so I sent the quilt away to Quiltmasters for June to work magic with her longarm machine. We chose a pattern called "flutterby", because people who saw the quilt in its many stages always commented on the 2 butterfly blocks, which I made sure to place close together.
And now, I'm itching to get back to the stack-n-whack quilt I started making for my own bed--started making it before I won these 1930s blocks. Gotta get back to it: there's excitement flowing through my veins that I want to take advantage of.
