My Mercy Border Block

The ladies in our little town have started a quilting group and we call ourselves:  Parma Quilters Anonymous.  We have a lot of fun together too.  This year we decided on an ongoing activity and we're going to call it the Mercy Border Quilt.  Basically, we each brought a center block for our quilt to our first meeting and then we all pass it on to someone else and that person will add a border to it.  Next  month it will be passed on again and hopefully by the end of the year we will each have a quilt made of a central block surrounded by borders made by each person in the group.  We are at the mercy of the person who adds the next border - hence the name.  I'm really excited about this project!  Here's my center block:
I can't wait to see it again.

I love your block. I have never tried that pattern before it looks so fun. Good job!

Hey your block turned out great! I remember when you first showed it to me. Good luck to the next person. Our little quilt group is going to try our luck at doing a sampler quilt, with of course different blocks, to learn some tricks of the quilt trade. And just a side note I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO!!!
