Wedding Blocks are Done

I am a little late in posting this but I did get the wedding blocks done by the deadline and mailed on April 30th. I managed to get the flu so it was difficult to get them finished.

One of the instructors at the Quiltmaker Magazine Block Party from March 2013 had since then gotten engaged. Julie Herman on her blog post of March 27, 2014 invited readers to make blocks for her wedding quilt.

From her blog:
"About our wedding quilt:
A huppah is the canopy a Jewish couple stands under during the wedding ceremony. It can be a sheet, a family heirloom tapestry, or a quilt! It is held up by four poles and it symbolizes the home that we will build together.
I am going to make a quilt for our huppah, naturally. It is going to be large and I need 222 small triangle blocks to make it. That's where you come in."
Julie's in Carlsbad, CA but since the quilting community is a very tight group the material she wanted used for the blocks was available in small, coordinated bundles online from Pink Chalk Fabrics which is located on Bainbridge Island, Washington. Thank you Kathy Mack! It made it so much easier to participate.

I ended up making three blocks - one I left uncut since I was feeling lousy and did not want to make a mistake without the right kind of ruler.
