Bitten By The Mitten Bug

I participated in a mitten swap last month with some on-line friends. These wonderful blocks are the result! Aren't they great? I am planning two blocks with wording in the upper left and lower right corners as well as a Twist 'n Turn (Sharyn Craig) setting using strips that match the mittens and were included with the blocks in the swap. I just love the different techniques employed here as well as the variety of fabrics and mitten sizes! Eventually, this will be a wall quilt that will hang near our kitchen eating area. Thanks one and all for contributing, I'm smitten with mittens.

Life is Good!
