But wait that's not all...

Chris will be collecting and displaying her President's blocks.

Didn't make one yet.  No worries there's still time.  The directions are below.

Still not enough...

Rumor has it the Quilt Show Raffle Quilt might just make its debut appearance.

President's Block Directions

Log Cabin Variation

6″ x 6″ block (or 6 ½” x 6 ½” unfinished)
2 fabrics:  purple batik and white background
Cut from each fabric:
4 squares 1.5″ x 1.5″
4 strips 1.5″ x 2.5″
2 strips 1.5″ x 3.5″

Please, refer to this diagram when following the directions.  

Make TWO block-one units by following the numbers 1 to 5 on the left diagram.
Begin by sewing together one purple and one white 1.5″ squares (step 1–2). 
Add a purple 1.5″ x 2.5″ strip at the top (step 3). 
Sew a white 1.5″ x 2.5″ strip at the side (step 4). 
Sew another white 1.5″ x 3.5″ strip at the top (step 5).
Using the same approach, make TWO block two units following the numbers in the block two diagram above, right.
Lay out the four units as shown in the picture to the left and sew together to make the complete block.
