FnwF

Once again I had a fantastic night, which I shared with my lovely friends Sue, Tania and Marg
It was a very regimented night with not much time for mucking about.
We had all decided to make a block each month for the Underground Railroad Sampler
When I arrived Marg & Sue were already trying to get a head start by beginning their cutting.
Our first block is the Underground Railroad also known as Jacobs Ladder.

This is the results of the finished blocks
Top Left-Margs, Top Right-Sues, Bottom left-Tanias and bottom right-Mine

My block is made up with the Kansas Trouble Range and the Background is from Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Range.
This was the nibblies for the night, we have to keep our souls fed.
Which was thoroughly enjoyed whilst having a chat over tea, coffee & wine  
Then we had time for a few laughs.
This one is for you Elyte.
I hope that you all had a productive night too.

Good to see that you guys got so much work done, but the highlight for me is the "photo". Fabulous "Portraits with Hats in Bathroom". I am sure that I heard your laughter travelling with the breeze last night.

It looks like you had great fun creating these blocks, and the four of them together look very nice, that got me thinking about making a quilt with this pattern.
