six of the twelve

I wanted to share the squares that I received from the other participants of the twelve square. Remember the concept?
Back in January I mailed out little bundles of fabric to eleven women.  I told them that the finished quilt will be for Libby and that "anything goes".  Just have fun.
Look what they came up with!
Autumn on left, Kathryn on right.
Tracy.
Sarah.
Jessica on left, Kristena on right.
Can you believe it?!  You can only imagine how great it was to receive these packages.
Back tomorrow with the other five.

Scrolling down, I immediately thought oh!! this one is my favorite, no, this one is, no, this one is!

Suzanne said...

Wow! There is a tremendous amount of talent here not to mention a lot of love for Libby. What a sweet touch to have her initial embroidered on one.

They're gorgeous! The fabrics allowed amazing creativity. And I imagine you can probably look at each block and know something more about each of the talented women. Soon, all that will be left of this story is your ending. Close your eyes and open your being. Ah...lovely.
