Thanks to everyone who commented. I thought I would show you a few more "quilt party" pictures. Hey, there were thirteen quilts exchanged, I can get at least a couple more days of blog mileage out of it!
For those of you who asked, I received the beautiful quilt done in fall colors and I made the red and tan two color quilt. Now you know it was a labor of love (done FOR the other person) if it was only two colors!
A word or two about the quilts pictured here. The top one was the quilter's first large quilt (she just joined our group last year). The second one with a "prarie point" border was made by a mother for a daughter. If I ever think I want to make something with points like this, just have me committed. The third bright one in red and yellow was so far out of the quiltmaker's comfort zone that she agonized over it for months (she doesn't usually make bright colored quilts). Whether you are making traditional quilts, or quilt art, I think that working outside your "comfort zone" can be a rewarding experience.
