You Wanna know how sweet Warm Buns and NICU Nurse are?!!
Last year, some of us went to a retreat in north Texas. The group of women who meet and do the retreat every year have a tradition: there is a hostess who brings a block or a technique for everyone to try. All the blocks completed are eligible for a drawing. The person that wins the drawing takes all the blocks home. That person becomes next years hostess. They have to bring those blocks back the next year in a completed project. That hostess is responsible to bring the block/technique for that year.
So, last year a bunch of us participated. Our very own NICU nurse Won the drawing! We were not able to attend the retreat this year. Pam and Linda (Warm Buns ) decided to put those blocks into a tote bag for each of us. They even embroidered our name on the bag! It is so beautiful and I just had to share it!
What a great gift! Did everyone get a bag made from their own block? And what is the name of the block or is it one somebody designed for the event? Looks like a nine-patch with additional squares appliqued on top????

The hostess brought the fabrics and I believe she showed us the folded flower technique. I picked that block from the Marcia Hohn site, I think. I'll see if I can find a picture of all the blocks. (I can't find those pics just yet...but someone else may have them. Not sure where I put them!)
I was surprised, but I think that is the block that I sewed!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Will Quilt for Chocolate,
