Plowing Match blocks

Deb and I got together this morning to make our plowing match blocks. The Plowing Match will be held close to St. Thomas next year and, of course, there is a quilt block competition. We made these blocks to participate, not win any competitions :-). The deadline was December 31st, so we figured we had better get moving LOL! I've only had the kit since last May or June. The fabrics are from Northcott and were included in the kit. We had to use at least four of them and were not allowed to add anything else. I ended up using all five colours and the name of this block is "noon and night".

Deb used four of the five colours in her block, Lacy Lattice Work. (The block is square! I took the photo from a slight angle :-(.

We filled out the accompanying entry form for the blocks, put them in an envelope and put stamps on it and they are in the mail! Nice to have those out of the way on time :-). Now on to other UFO's. Can't wait to see what kind of quilt they make from the winning blocks.

These are both great, and I like the fabrics in the challenge. Great job, both of you!
